Excess, drugs, sedentary lifestyle, abuse, injustice, lies, obsessions, ambitions, mistreatment, among many: these are the topics artists found on the – as they call it – morally careless society. They present a clear visuality and message from which nobody can be indifferent. Mass medias, Internet specially, make news flowing and show realities of several places and cultures. However, some prefer to blindfold themselves. Satire is for catching attention, a deep contrast that does not stop to be interesting and reflexives.
Arte al Límite invites you to know some of these artists and their works. They wish a change or, at least, they want you to have your own conclusions.
1.- John Holcroft
“Likes” that fuel EGO.
