Grown-up nostalgia by Klaus Kremmerz

New art by Klaus Kremmerz captures the zeitgeist of the 90′s, and it’s addictive! This young connoisseur of modern life creates illustrations with confident colors, packed full of humor and that 90s feel that’s so now. His upbeat compositions capture only the essentials, they translate into curious studies of people and how we live. We love his felt tip marker aesthetic, synonymous with VCRs, The Fresh Prince, walkmans and chatrooms, they take you back to your teenage pastimes. These artworks remind us of that life changing moment when we first discovered the cool, powered potential of art. (more…)

Nostalgia and Retrofuturism: Let’s do the time warp again!

Nostalgia is an ambivalent mix of emotions: fondly remembering the past and confronting a time that’s gone and unattainable. From Instagram filters to vinyl records to Sylvester Stallone as a reboot — we can’t get enough of it! The feeling of nostalgia reminds us of the hallmark of youth, a testimony to our adventures, a time when we took our imaginations to the ultimate limit…just for the fun of it!

Retrofuturism is looking back to see how yesterday viewed tomorrow, Javier Puyou celebrates (and parodies) the stories past generations told about the crazy world of tomorrow. His wildly witty super cars and jet-packs commemorates a time when our grandfathers obsessed over innovation, remembering golden tomorrows that never came to pass. In contemporary culture, no decade is as iconic as the 80′s! We love the work of Gavin Dias, inspired by the action thriller movies of 1980′s. We can hear the synth music in the background, with 3am neon lights and the adrenaline rush of a car chase. Awesome! Paul Loubet examines pop culture through a sci-fi geek lens. His work is a throwback to 1990′s video games and the epic bygone comic book era. His enthusiasm is infectious and makes you surrender to your inner teen.

Wildly fun space interiors and alien party goers: Tim Furey from New Jersey

Intergalactic travel, neon alien interiors, shifting realities and glittery cosmic raves: the weird and funny alien world of Tim Furey isn’t actually that far from contemporary life — they are familiar and alien at the same time. We think he’s made out of disco balls and mischievous smiles! We love his collage aesthetic and the late 80s early 90s influences, especially the retro arcade game and Atari references. His imagination becomes the universe. Don’t miss the funny descriptions!

Brace yourself! When hopping through interstellar space, watch out for the wormholes! Illustrator Paul Loubet is a young Frenchman living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His funny parallel universes and dinosaurs are filled with unabashed science-fiction geekiness, throwback to 1990s video games and epic bygone era comic books! They take you on a joyride through a miscellany of pop culture references, playful street art and satire of taste and culture. We love how he doesn’t take himself too seriously, as if the world is seen through the eyes of a precocious teen.
