A lot has been said about the modern society, some reasoning hold water while some simply don’t make sense. They have been accused of seeking immediate gratification as if they can’t imagine a future for themselves with lots of emphases put on living ‘for the moment.’

Domestic violence, anoxia Nervosa, the dawn of the age of social media and numerous other social issues have been addressed by illustrator, Al Margen. Based in Buenos Aires, the artist creates images that are thought-provoking trying to smoke out flaws that have either been ignored or forcefully stuffed in our throats.

The author does not hide his deep passion for social justice and his deep commitment is availed in the way he critics his own work “They are children of boredom, nonconformity or anger… They are the representation of discarded ideas. They are the garbage of the subconscious. But they are more visceral and sincere than other drawings because they have no obligation to please. Because they were born to annoy and show the imperfect.”
