By: Britta Kallevang

Illustrator and animator Steve Cutts’ always intentionally creates discomfort in his audience by exposing them to depictions of unpleasant things like slave labor, consumerism, pollution, and politics. Cutts’ images create a kind of forced reckoning with issues most of us would rather sweep under the rug and forget about forever.

Below are examples of his illustrations. Check out the artist’s website for featured animations, illustrations and more.
