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.
