This Artwork Is Probably The Most Accurate (And Scary) Portrayal Of Modern Life We’ve Ever Seen

It’s not nice, but it’s certainly close to the mark…

Steve Cutts is a London-based illustrator and animator who uses powerful images to criticize the sad state of society.

Greed, environmental destruction, junk food and TV consumption, smartphone addiction and the exploitation of animals are all issues that have inspired his work.




Cutts worked in the corporate world before choosing to go freelance, and his vitriol for the rat race really shows (especially here…)

Cutts used to work at an advertising agency with global brand clients including Coca Cola, Google, Reebok, Magners, Kellogg’s, Virgin, 3, Nokia, Sony, Bacardi and Toyota. It’s no surprise he was left with so many ideas for these thought-provoking images.

His illustrations capture all the stress, despair and frustration of our dog-eat-dog world, one in which we are persuaded to consume sh*t and destroy the planet in order to keep the corporate wheels turning.

It’s true that Cutts’s art is depressing, but only because his images are so close to the truth. Here is a selection of some of his best works:

    Is anyone really “shocked” or “taken aback” or “forced to think real hard about their lives” when they see shit like this anymore? This shit is so 80’s, fuck it’s kinda 50’s in a way. This isn’t shocking of profound of observant in any way. Artists have been deconstructing theses exact same themes about technology, about body image, about capitalism, about education, about pop media for freaking ever. Probably longer than I ever realize.
    like, i hope this artist REALIZES that they’re just regurgitating old ideas in 2015, because if they think they’re original and they’re the first ones to see the world like this then I feel really freaking sorry for them.
    Art is a conversation and you aren’t bringing anything new to the table.
