Artists Tell Disturbing Truths We Often Ignore, 15 Works With Strong Social Messages.

We don’t live in a perfect world, we know that. And yet, we often do not understand how worrying the conditions of our planet and our society are. These artists have found a way to remind us of this and have used the medium through which they can best express themselves and communicate important messages: street art. The walls, the buildings, the streets, the manholes have become the canvases that host works capable of making us think. Strong images and provocative phrases: the artists will stop at nothing to make the public understand how the planet is changing, how endangered animals are, how dangerous our dependence on technology is. These 15 works tell uncomfortable truths, the ones we have in front of us but too often ignore.

Smartphone in hand, no Instagram notification and an expression of anger and despair: is this the future we want?

We constantly fall into contradiction: we want at all costs to immortalize the beauty of nature, even if it means harming it.

#13. We eat the earth.
