Drawing on World Issues: These Make You Think

Using satire and colored pencil to deal with tough and poignant issues, Polish artist/cartoonist Pawel Kuczynski works with global issues like pollution, child labor and wage disparity while turning a clever and humorous eye on the situation. By taking familiar issues out of context, his works ask the observer to re-examine world issues from previously un-considered perspectives, challenging viewers to assess their part in the whole.
