Canadian street artist iHeart takes the streets of Vancouver and creates a series of stenciled street art compositions, which comment on the social media era and its effect on contemporary culture and its influence on children growing up in it.
The artist, whose work reminds one of Banksy, takes social criticism to the next level, by imagining young children as obsessed neurotic adults or confused rebels. New age symbols such as hashtags and instagram notifications, and witty phrases commenting on the social detachment of the 2015 individual, tell a very contemporary story; a story of young kids growing to be alienated, but technologically advanced, adults.
