Human life is something that is indefinable. The more humans step into the modern world-embracing science and technology, the more they leave humanistic qualities behind. In this battle of materialism and spiritualism, humans favor materialism as most of them think happiness lies in owning more and materialistic possessions. And eventually, they discard reality by being deceived by a superficially sweet illusionary world. This aspect of life is reflected by the Romanian artists Horia Crisan and Bodgan Petry through the satirical images they have been creating for the past 30 years.
These images they have created portray the bitter reality of life that humans are afraid of accepting.
