Over the years, Estonian Visual Artist Mart Virkus has been letting out his frustrations hinged on video games, pop culture, and daily life through a form of hilarious comics titled Arcade Rage. The minimalist comic strips feature the issues of the most popular video games and even touch on severe global topics, including mental health. Virkus, who has a background in anthropology, is also inspired by the things going on globally, including coronavirus and climate issues.
Virkus art style has a clear dark undertone and is primarily drawn in one to four-panel. In particular, the comics best express complex emotions. On the other hand, Laughter is the perfect antidote, and of course, Virkus’ comics engraved with dark humor are one great way of dealing with the anxieties of life. Likewise, finding little chances to chuckle about the absurdity of modern times is vital; hence it’s a good thing to glance through Virkus’ latest.
