39 Brilliant Retro Style Illustrations That Show What’s Wrong With Society Today

Imagine being able to connect two different eras through one visual medium. That’s what makes the work of British illustrator John Holcroft so special.

Drawing inspiration from 1950s screen print posters, he creates retro style illustrations that depict what’s wrong with the world today.

His illustrations are focused on subjects which highlight social issues and modern-day problems.

It’s the subject matter that separate images like these from other artists as they provoke thoughts that can ultimately lead to change.

Holcraft’s quirky, satirical works of art cover contemporary issues like society’s dependence on technology, devaluation of workforce, obesity, politics, social media, big tobacco companies, utility services, and even pop culture icons to show us that we’ve grown accustomed to companies shoving things down our throats, like the need to be liked, the need to look a certain way, and the need to conform.

His past clients include Guardian, Telegraph, Economist, Independent and Reader’s Digest to name a few. Scroll down to see these thought provoking images, which highlight social issues and modern-day problems.
