The Artwork explained
With this illustration, the French artist Boris Bobz created the 'Press Corpse Tee | White' and 'Press Corpse Tee | Black' where he represented an old man driving a carriage pulled by a zombie-like young lady who is brainwashed by the newspaper showed to her.
In this case, the old man represents the media, which manipulates the masses by using methods that have been used regularly during history. The vulture represents the system, which awaits that the media’s job is carried over properly to take advantage of the unconscious and helpless mass. The young lady pulling the carriage like a donkey (symbol of ignorance) represents the mass, which is the one that is brainwashed and exploited, allowing the system to be alive and healthy.
With this beautiful illustration, the artist aims to communicate in a provocative way the ease with which, too often, people get brainwashed by what they read or see in the media. This can have dangerous consequences by influencing people’s behavior who end up being like unaware puppets.
This artwork wants to be a sort of wake-up call, inviting people to be always careful when getting opinions based on what is read or seen in the media. In general, it’s important to always doubt everything, check multiple sources, and be informed of who is behind the information.
