Dario Mekler is a graphic designer and illustrator from Argentina. Using colors to attract the viewer in an aesthetically pleasant way, his works ironizes modern living, with a subtle note of pessimism. With tribal elements, his images have a somehow futuristic aspect, a colorful world where the viewer is invited to reflect for a moment at the subtlety of the hidden message. Here’s how Dario describes the intent of his work:
The greater part of my work, the images I produce through traditional media are reflections of a constant philosophical questioning of the world we live in: modernity and the systems to which we are binded. The things we do every day and accept as the only possible way of doing them. Of course these are not explicitly dark images, they are pretty colorful and somehow humorous in an ironic way. There is a dark pessimism in them, but I always look for it to be subtle, like an after thought.
