Human evolution: 99 Steps of Progress by Maentis

Is our evolution so fantastic? Well, there have been very many different opinions. Maentis, an anonymous group specialized in design and street art, has been giving its opinion in 99 steps. Very interesting work!

A succession of drawings serves to satirize the evolution between first hominids and current human being. Then, this group or French artists, Maentis, represents sarcastically our ‘evolution’, focusing on social networks, the economic crisis, the production of toxic waste, our self-destructive behavior or the manipulation of advertising on our reasoning.

Maentis says many of the illustrations are a reflection of the times we live. “But we are not here to dictate anything. Meanings are not always obvious, so that others may interpret them through their own prism.”

Maentis, a group of anonymous artists, started with this project on September, 15. Ten different versions to possible incidentals. Their 99 steps have been circulating the web with great success and they have made limited editions of each paper (99 copies per design) on posters and T-shirts.

The number 14 – Instant Network (instant) – was their first success on Internet: the modern man checks his Twitter account in the smartphone and read the message “@ Neandertal is following you.”

Now, recently completed the challenge, Maentis, the anonymous French artist group recognizes that was hard. “It was the best way to test our creativity and discipline. Sometimes we thought that was crazy and we would not get away. We even imagine possible excuses if we had to leave.” No doubt, it has been a really exhausting work “quick sketches, fights and negotiations, final versions in Photoshop, more fighting and more negotiations” until the piece ended on page.
