You’ll question the world around you once you’ve seen these pictures
By: Pawel Kuczynski
What does it mean to be an individual? What is society? And where are we going? Pawel Kuczynski, a famous cartoonist from Poland, poses these and many other questions in his work.
His fascinating illustrations have garnered significant popularity for their highly topical subject matter; it's said that they often reflect the very essence of what's going on around us in the modern world.
Kuczynski, moreover, has his own unique style of drawing which is quite unlike that of any other artist. He explains that he always thinks through the idea for every illustration very carefully, trying to endow each one with as much meaning as he can express.
We put together a selection of 20 of Kuczynski's best drawings. Their combination of subtle humour and thought-provoking ideas throw up a whole number of uncomfortable questions about the nature of the world we live in.
The essence of money.
The dove of peace.
The social divide.
