A picture is worth a thousand words.
I am sure we have all heard this statement and it makes a lot of sense when you take a look at some pieces of art. Now I am not talking about abstract paintings which can have varying meanings for everyone but there are a lot of illustrations that touch on the issues today’s world has to face. From addiction to social media to faking happiness just to fit in. Our reality has become just as fake as any reality TV show and this artist is here to expose that.
I am ofcourse talking about Jean Jullien. He is a french illustrator and designer and I have to say that I love his simple but powerful designs. His art style might not be gaudy but it is certainly unique and he focuses on the subject and the story of the illustration more than anything else. So if you are here to have an existential crisis, this art might just help you with that. Jokes aside, not everyone will agree with his sentiment but he doesn’t take any sentiment, this information is just out there for everyone to see and they can form their own opinion.
So scroll below to take a look at some incredible art.

These are not the only things he draws. He has quite a varied style when it comes to his art. But it usually stays within semi-realistic or cartoony and it is amazing.
