These Powerful Art Illustrations Show How Backwards Society Really Is

By  | A New Kind Of Human

Great artists are always messengers of Truth. They may not speak through verbal language, or even the written word. But through their personal creativity, they are able to communicate deeper thoughts, and feelings, that conventional language often times cannot. And they do this in such a way that their chosen form of expression comes to be known invariably as Art.

With that said, here is a collection of some of the most brilliant modern day art around.
