Art is meant to make us feel things, positive or negative. Sometimes, it holds up a mirror to the world and that might mean showing the ugly truth. Illustrator Steve Cutts is an illustrator and animator from London takes a dark stand through his art and shows us where the world is headed. In some cases, it's already there. The brutal way he puts across his point of view might jolt you but it is worth thinking about.

With the visuals he paints, he shows us how being immersed in materialistic pleasures and consuming things without restraint is hurting the planet. Hos artwork also depicts that whether we want it or not we are running in the rat race.
