Artist Louise Astorino rounds up her favorite art Instagram accounts and explains why everyone should be following them.
"WE'RE SO TRENDY WE CAN'T EVEN ESCAPE OURSELVES."
Toiletpaper Mag is a picture-based publication that is released bi-annually, and their instagram showcases the photography from each issue. The publication was co-created by Maurizio Cattelan and the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, and started back in 2009 when Cattelan and Ferrari collaborated for a W Mag photoshoot. The photos are always really bright and eye-catching, normally consisting in something obscure or odd looking.
“THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMBINE THINGS THAT HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING COMBINED WITH EACH OTHER.”
Stephen McMennamy is the man behind Combo Photo and not only does he have a great sense of humor, but he also has an amazing knack of combining uncommon photos to make one image. He makes the distinction between each photo noticeable, but from far away it can be deceiving to the eye.
“SOUS LES JUPES DES FILLES.”
Agathe Sorlet is an Illustrator and Animator based between Paris and London. She has a really simplistic style that uses color in such a smart way. I love her representation of the female form and the way she illustrates little nuances of human interaction.
“WAITING FOR THE RETURN OF HIPSTER RUNOFF? ME TOO, BB.”
Rinny Riot is a graphic artist that uses old/vintage photographs and overlays text that is tongue-in-cheek and hilariously relatable. Her color pallet consists of warm hues and most of the subjects used in her photos/collages are women of color. When Rinny makes a cameo on her feed she is nothing less than fabulous like the woman depicted in her designs.
