Pawel Kuczynski is a polish artist and cartoonist whose satirical drawings are as thought provoking as they are interesting to look at. Born in 1976, he’s been drawing cartoons in the satire genre since 2004 and has more than 100 awards, prizes and distinctions to his name. It’s no surprise as his work has a unique way of evoking deep thought, while the images he creates can be described as straightforward and simple. Like any good satirist, he wants his work left open to interpretation, though we think it’s safe to say he thinks an awful lot like a Green Monster, as he waxes artistic on subjects like world peace, poverty, ecology and animals.

“I’m [an] observer,” he said of where he gets the inspiration behind his work. “We all live together on (sic) this world, for so many years but we keep doing the same mistakes.” Watching the way we treat one another, the earth and animals has obviously inspired him to provoke conscious contemplation, though not every piece he does is intended to be a serious commentary. Often including jokes, he takes a light hearted approach on occasion to depict his musings, though his subjects by default are timely and painfully real.

Which is precisely why Kuczynki’s work resonates so strongly for so many. He draws what he sees in the world around him, the same world we all share. By putting animals into his work with a satirical tone, we can look at these issues through a different lens.

One thing is absolutely certain, Pawel Kuczynski’s work definitely makes you think. Here’s how we see his work (and we’re fairly certain he’d agree with us).

More people are turning towards either flesh free or reduced flesh diets. A matter or conscience, choice or the avoidance of chemicals in farmed flesh. The main issue, I believe, is to ensure that even farmed animals have rights so at least they live without cruelty. This will happen naturally as more people eat less meat.

Why do we love one and not the other. Attachment? Addiction? Greed? Egoism? Habit? Brainwashing? Being manipulated and conditioned by religions and industries? Ignorance?
