Luis Quiles is a Spanish artist with a line of extremely controversial and provocative work, that features caustic and powerful scenes that comment on important social issues. In his many illustrations the artist uses disturbing images in order to show the filth and corruption that rules our world. Picking up sensitive topics like sexual abuse, religion and violence, Quiles knows how to perfectly combine his exceptional skills with his thoughtful ideas.
Many of his works are so disturbing that make the viewer look away. In his shocking imagery Quiles depicts children, teenage girls and old men in various uncomfortable and offensive situations. Through this language, Quiles hits the filth that draws young people into corruption, but also opens the door for fears to be expressed and discussed, while he shows society how nothing is as innocent as it looks like and how everything pure can be turned into dirt.
