Tony Futura: humorous reality
Simply and easily, using only facts from our everyday life, Tony Futura helps us see and actually understand the world we live in. Funny illustrations do not search for global surrealism, but still send us some very important messages.
We might spend hours discussing how weird modern art is. We also spend hours on Facebook and Instagram, cursing them for wasting so much of our precious time. We oeder big menus in fast food restaurants and take diet Coke with it. We try not to miss not a single digital feature or device, persuading ourselves that we totally can not do without them. And everywhere, EVERYWHERE we see sex. Even in the most innocent innocence. That is what simple illustrations made by this German digital artist tell us about.
Tony Futura’s Instagram account is for those who is not afraid to face the reality and to smile to it. Even though sometimes his illustrations might seem too simple, a little vulgar, a bit nasty, but the feeling of good sarcasm that his pictures give us can not nothing but attract our attention again and again. Perhaps, that is why he is followed by more than 60,000 people on Instagram.
Earth looks like a stub? Really? — “Absolutely!” — claims Tony. That is what we do to our mother-planet, unconsciously and thoughtlessly eating it in and out, not giving anything back. And have a look at this lips print! It is telling us that every kiss is unique and it must be valued and loved. So as we can see, the simplicity that lays on the surface of Tony’s works sometimes goes deeper to our feelings and emotions and is not so pointless and senseless.
Look around yourselves, look closer to what Tony Futura shows us: everywhere there is much more sense that it seems from the first sight.
