NOUN - informal
While I had not done anything artistic for many years, my discovery of the Glitch and Vaporwave communities within the internet art world gave me the inspiration and confidence to push on and try some new things. As you can see above, the results are varied but it helped me to find my own style.
The picture above is one of my own interpretations of Vaporwave art.
Vaporwave observes what is known as New Aesthetic, which has been headed by the last generation of the 20th and first of the 21st centuries, combining retro graphics with nuances of both ancient & future civilisations.
Many examples of Vaporwave are almost satirist in nature, using slick 1980s style computer graphics alongside newer but dated looking graphics such as the Windows 95 logo. These are often accompanied with a pensive looking statue of a Greek god or philosopher gazing out at the viewer.
An almost essential element of this style is the presence of neon pastel shades of blue-green and pink.
I find Vaporwave to be basic in nature, but it can be compelling and nice to look at.
