Art As Social Commentary.

” All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom” (Albert Einstein).

Art As Social Commentary is a springboard for bringing attention and discussion to political, cultural and social issues. Art can vividly express complex problems in ways that words do not. The artist, in exploring the nature of society assumes the role of reporter, an analyst. They use their work for social and political commentary questioning and depicting the world around them, using art to help shape the debate.

Satire in commentary is meant to be funny. With irony and sarcasm the foibles and follies, vices, abuses and shortcomings of society are held up for ridicule. The intent is to shame the public or individual to improvement. Viewing art is an individual experience and as each has a unique interpretation the layers of complexity build up as more than one meaning can be attached to humor that is political, social or moral.

Artist Paul Kuczynski was born 1976 in Szczcin, Poland. He studied fine art at the university at Poznan and uses illustration as a means of conveying concerns about social and ethical issues. Paul’s social criticism uses wit as a weapon. I love it.

“Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life’s become extinct, the climates ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day” (Anton Chekhov -1860 – 1904-)

  5. Hi,

    What a wonderful post! Loved the art and your commentary. Satire if done correctly, skewers its subject so well, it is often impossible to ever take it as seriously as before.

    Thanks again, Bruce
