My latest obsession is the music video for SANDÍA by Argentinian rapper Nathy Peluso. This vaporwave aesthetic is so millennial it makes me want to put it in a time capsule and preserve it for generations to come – together with a note saying “this is the aesthetic the post-internet era was all about”.
For those of you who are not down with the millennial lingo, vaporwave is basically a subculture of music and art that satires and celebrates pop culture. The visuals of vaporwave are coincidentally enough referred to as ‘aesthetics’. If you’re looking at something pink, with a marble classical bust, nostalgic imagery from the 90’s, and a glitching, stretched out font – you’re probably looking at a vaporwave aesthetic.
You can definitely see the vaporwave influences in SANDÍA by Nathy Peluso. Like Cabanel’s Venus photoshopped in front of a picture of Ciara = my two favourite things in life. <3
