There are a lot of issues in today’s society. Addiction to social media, devaluation of workers, unhealthy lifestyles, and that’s just a few of them. A lot of us don’t even notice these problems; we either ignore them or don’t run into them at all. However, artist John Holcroft tackles them head-on and illustrates the issues of today’s world in his satirical and honest art.

Illustration About Mental Health At A Time Of Social Isolation

John (previously) has been illustrating since 1996. He works and lives in the UK. His past clients include Guardian, Telegraph, Times, BBC, and many others. John Holcroft’s art looks simplistic, but it hides a deep and complicated meaning. It’s pretty amazing how he can portray such serious topics with one simple illustration.

One Day This Will Be Yours

John shares what issues in today’s world he is most passionate about: “I’m not more passionate about issues than anyone else; however, I don’t like injustices of any kind so I usually focus my concepts on the things most people care about, such as corporate greed, climate change, and politics. If I had the power to change the world I would try to put an end to corrupt governments and corporate giants having control. I would make sure money is put in the right places, i.e.: tackling climate change and I would have a fairer system that cares for ordinary people.”
