Paintings, drawings, or any illustrations are all about the artists’ self-expression of what they feel. One of the artist’s works is to make a statement of some kind, like satirical illustrations , a tool to bring attention to both particular and wider issues in society.
Satire is a genre of literature, sometimes graphics and performing arts, in which vices, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, society itself, into improvement.
