John Holcroft is renown for his satirical illustrations. His work shows the problems in our society, emphasizing the cruel reality. While we all live in a century characterized by speed and technology, John Holcroft made a decision to show us the reality. As he says, we have become greedy and we seem to forget noble values, like kindness and sincerity. This lack of humanity in us derives from the society we live in.
As an illustration artist, he has worked with dozens of companies based in UK , Sweden , Australia and USA. He has become viral on the Internet when he released his newest satirical illustrations. The main theme of his illustrations is greed and the main purpose is to criticize this greed. The illustrations often show people asking for a lot more time, a lot more money, a lot more smartphones, a lot more of everything, without giving something in return. What is a lot more interesting is that he manages to show a certain flaw by keeping an objective, yet funny tone. even if you may laugh while browsing through his art, you have to remember that excessive technology and a lot more money are not the answer to a better society.
John Holcroft is generally teaching us how to survive in a toxic society, using, of course, illustrations consisting of rough content. You can visit his web site here and you can “like” his Facebook page by clicking here.
