Modern world by Marco Melgrati


Modern world by Marco Melgrati

Illustration is the form of art which connects us with the real life. Ever since our childhood, we loved drawing our perception of the world. But what happens when the world has changed so much that we no longer recognize neither it, or the people, or ourselves? It is that kind of illustration – which asks questions instead of answering them – is the main focus of Marco Melgrati.

He is an Italian illustrator, currently situated in Mexico City. His major body of work includes illustrations for famous magazines from USA, Italy, and Mexico, but also worldwide. Topics he usually covers include social networks and how they changed our lives, the narcissism of today’s society, as well as forgetting the real values, such as a truly human touch and conversation.

“What I love about illustration is that it’s so connected to real life – working for newspapers and magazines forces you to think about what’s happening in the world.

“That’s why a lot of my work talks about war and social media: war because unfortunately, it is always present in man’s history (and these days are no exception); and social media and the internet because they are one of the greatest changes in the history of human culture.” Marco Melgrati

Below we present you a collection of his most daring illustrations which criticize what we have all become: alienated beings which no longer see anything, except for our smartphones.
