A topic quite close to my heart, I am creating series of sketches to highlight the plight of mankind, suffering the adversities of our capitalism and consumer centric society. Although, seen successful all around the world, the monetary system and capitalist society has left a gap between us human beings. We have started giving more importance to money and other worldly goods and have gone far in our insensitivity to other. We have learnt to gain more riches on the expense of fellow human beings. We have learnt how to cripple masses in general in order to advance a select few. I do hope my sketches will highlight the plight and make us realise what kind of damage are we causing.
I am sketching all the sketches in this series with Willow Charcoal and graphite on different papers, mostly 200 gsm, acid free, Derwent paper. Willow Charcoal is a great medium to work with, easy to handle, although messy at best of times. The photographs I have used were picked at random and I will credit the photographer (if known) or the source as best as possible.
