Sometimes we don’t notice or just don’t want to notice the ugly side of our society. Spanish artist Luis Quiles does notice it and makes powerful illustrations about what our society is like today. Quiles’ works evoke the most different emotions from disgust to sadness and terror.
The main subject of the stories he creates with his illustrations concerns social issues like homophobia, sexism, domestic violence, exploitation, and taking advantage of someone. These things exist next to us and sometimes we don’t even have a clue that we are dealing with these issues.
The impressive collection of Quiles’ illustrations make us more conscious and alerted about all the dirt that’s going on around us.
