Cartoonist Pawel Kuczynski Takes on Facebook with His Thought Provoking Art

Pawel Kuczynski, while not a household name in the USA, has won hundreds of awards in Europe for his incredible illustrations that comment on social, economic, and political issues. And those comments are made with a razor-sharp tongue. A popular subject for his work – Facebook – is a real conversation starter when hung on the wall of your home. But he doesn’t stop at poking the popular social media platform. His pure artistic talent is undisputed and his work is vaguely reminiscent of the pointillism of George Seurat. But it’s deeper than that. He’s a thinking man, and he often doesn’t like what he sees. His point is often piercing. And a few of his pieces, while brilliant and still quite subtle, are too disturbing to hang in our opinion. And why is that? Because they are too true. The truth is often disturbing. And it is the responsibility of our artists and writers to tell that truth in a way that appeals to our finer senses. Our sense of justice, our sense of beauty, our sense of humanity. There’s art, and then there’s art. You don’t need anything more on a wall than a Kuczynski to really make a statement. Fashion or political.

Kuczynski’s Facebook Series

Some of the works have names that give us clues to the meaning – some are merely numbered… leaving the total meaning to your own interpretation.

Facebook check. All okay.

Facebook. Can it save us?

Other Social and Political Comments

Although his work suggests that he is also a master of words – he doesn’t tell us anything, he shows us. He allows us to make our own judgments and often to see what we believe to be true. A collection of his works – perhaps running up the wall of the stairs in a loft – would make an interesting talking piece. If you do it, mark our words. You’ll have people stopping on the stairs to read, and think.

Love – when the brain takes a break. Hmm, one might think the artist has experienced this before.
