Steffen Kraft is a German artist also known as Iconeo who showcases the problems of today’s society through ingenious illustrations. “On the one hand, I’m inspired by little things, like my pencil, a cup of coffee or toilet paper. On the other hand, I’m inspired by bigger things, like climate change, plastic pollution or social behavior. I try to make these complex themes simple and surprising,” Kraft shared in an interview with bored panda. “My goal is to surprise the viewer with simple ideas that they may not have thought about and which make them think, and make them discuss them with others.” Artist also shared a piece of nice advice for anyone who is at the beginning of their artistic journey: “Be patient when you are uninspired or when you feel misunderstood. You are on the right path, as long as you are engaged in doing what you find interesting. And don’t forget to relax. I get the best ideas when I’m relaxed and out of my office.” Steffen Kraft’s Instagram, Facebook and Etsy shop.
