Vaporwave art comes in many forms. Glitch, pixel, photoshopped madness… but few come in a contemporary form. Meet Richard Parry; this guy has been doing perspective art for 1 year but only recently has been capturing the sole essence of what vaporwave is.

His early works could best be described as an artist trying to find himself with closeups of rain, technology, and even a couple of pins. Upon looking at the work, it’s apparent that the artist had a skill for this even though it wasn’t developed yet. Fast forward a couple of months later and it’s clear that he has figured out the definitive art style for which he wants to do for the rest of his life.

Much of his vaporwave work consists of perspective art that uses contrast and idiolicies in order to paint a message depending on the subject of the picture. In one case, it could be an avocado shell split in half on black and white, another it could be cigarettes and menthols; very rarely does he use vaporwave colors, instead choosing to use colors to draw focus to the subject at hand, which can include anything.

The artists work reminds people of 50s “pop art” except updated for the modern times. This art is bold in that it takes the art that originally featured hot rods, burgers and art deco architecture and places it in a brand new light for a brand new audience. I’m guessing the amount of time it takes for the artist to set up and take these pictures are long and worth it, I couldn’t imagine taking apart a PS2 for an arty picture but he has done it, all for the purpose of art.

There are also a couple of food pictures as well which serve a dual purpose, throwing back to the times when food pictures were all the rage and reflecting the vaporwave culture as a whole. I couldn’t imagine lining up all of those pieces of food in perfect symmetry, that alone gives it a naturalistic feeling most of today’s art is missing. It feels human but computerized at the same time; while others are just simply copying and pasting, he is setting a lane of its own.

You can find the artist on Instagram and Reddit. Don’t be afraid to support the artist’s work, it’s well deserved.
