Vaporwave Colors



I traced over a photograph of Ariel Pink ( a musician) I found online on Illustrator.

Here is the original photograph


I scaled the image, that’s why his face looks a lot thinner in my piece than the actual photograph. I replaced the original colors with blues, purples, and pinks.

At the moment I’ve realized that most of my digital art is inspired by vaporwave colors those colors are bright tints of cool colors like blues, purples, and pinks.

Vaporwave is an art movement that was born in 2010 it is inspired by 80’s and 90’s computer graphics and it is also a music movement. Some of it is also inspired by Japanese culture and old game graphics.  I am drawn to the color scheme in vaporwave art and I love the aesthetic of old graphic art as well.

Some examples of Vaporwave art


This Vaporwave movement  is  making a comeback and has been used in music videos for lofi hip hop music.

Lil Uzi Vert’s music videos reference vaporwave art by including a VHS effect to his music videos and  by including 3D graphics  while also including the three main vaporwave colors, Pink, Blue, Purple.


I think Lil Uzi is the king of vaporwave music videos in Hip Hop

Anyways it’s something that inspires me in my art.

Like this Landscape I made… fantasticlandscape

I hope vaporwave art never dies. . .
