With the invention and wide use of computers, mobile phones, social media, and the internet, the world has changed a lot.
In fact, the number of inventions in the last few decades put all the inventions in the rest of human history to shame.
Undoubtedly, the computer and the internet played a major role in all this progress but there are downsides to it too.
We are becoming more and more dependent on technology every passing day and this thing has given rise to increasing concerns about privacy, security and social life.
Davide Bonazzi is a freelance illustrator who works with renowned publishers, advertising agencies and institutes like the New York Times, The Wired, The Wall Street Journal, Variety, GQ, UNESCO, and Fortune.
Davide creates art pieces depicting the problems and faults in our society.
“After university, I spent a year at the European Institute of Design in Milan, then two more years at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna,” Davide told Bored Panda.
“I’ve come to know what illustration is exactly through practice. I’ve had a few great teachers who really inspired me.”
“I’ve always been an optimistic person, though the more I learn about the world we live in, the more I feel worried about our future,” he added.
“Especially, the ecological crisis. It seems we’re at the start of a global challenge with an uncertain outcome, and we all have to do our part.
“In the past decades, people had been taught to be selfish, to consume. I think it’s crucial to eradicate this trend.”
Here are some of the shortlisted illustrations from Davide’s work that will make you think twice about where we are headed as a race and what dangers the modern ‘online’ lifestyles have put us in.
