Pawel Kuczynski is a polish artist and cartoonist whose satirical drawings are as thought provoking as they are interesting to look at. It’s no surprise as his work has a unique way of evoking deep thought, while the images he creates can be described as straightforward and simple.
“I’m an observer,” he said of where he gets the inspiration behind his work. “We all live together on (sic) this world, for so many years but we keep doing the same mistakes.” Watching the way we treat one another, the earth and animals has obviously inspired him to provoke conscious contemplation, though not every piece he does is intended to be a serious commentary. Often including jokes, he takes a light hearted approach on occasion to depict his musings, though his subjects by default are timely and painfully real.
Which is precisely why Kuczynki’s work resonates so strongly for so many. He draws what he sees in the world around him, the same world we all share. By putting animals into his work with a satirical tone, we can look at these issues through a different lens.
