Sad and Surreal Contemporary Cartoons by Angel Boligan

Cuban cartoonist Angel Boligan creates thought-provoking works that all have a touch of sadness and surrealism. Look through each of them and you'll notice that he isn't afraid to address such universal topics as love and loss, yet he does so with both style and humor.

At Cervantes Institute of Athens, in an exhibit titled "With Humor as Common Language," Boligan is currently showcasing his works along with fellow cartoonist Mijalis Kuduris. Considered to be two of the best contemporary cartoonists of our time, they've won recognition worldwide. Boligan himself has taken home 137 international awards and is now the president of the Latin American Cartoon Club.

Here is a selection of his work.
