Have you ever wondered what Greco-Roman statues have in common with a pink and purple world of the late 90s? And why would you glue some palm trees over a romantic and pixeled sunset? Because you love Vaporwave, that’s why.
Vaporwave aesthetic was born in the early 2010s and started taking place at the same pace as its musical counterpart. It represents every nostalgic element we deep down feel linked to in a very contemplative, but also ironic way. It is described by its common themes which include 90s corporate commercialism, old anime shows, 80s style colors, cyberpunk tropes, pixel art, 3D-rendered objects, floppy disks, VHS degradation and lots of Japanese kanji. There are no proper rules when talking about vaporwave and that is why most of the time it sounds confusing.
For many people, Vaporwave is something that you need to see in order to understand. And that is why we put together for you 25 artworks we found online and better explained to us what the Vaporwave Aesthetic represents.
