Instagram, our friend and foe. Stronghold of procrastination and eater of time. An app with so much potential for inspiring visualisations and geniusly witty snaps – yet our feed often ends up being a bunch of #foodgrams, jealousy infusing I’m-on-holiday-somewhere-sunny-snaps and pointless updates from acquaintances that you only follow because, you know, they’re your “friends” and they follow you so now you have to.
Does your feed need a fashion shot in the arm? Look no further, Alter Ego’s fashion correspondent is an avid user of the app and picks out her top Fashion x Art accounts on Instagram.
Because her satirical videos, collages and doodles make us grin and reminds us of the creative mischief we’d do as bored school kids back in the day..
Because the women she draws always look very you-can’t-sit-with-us in spite of a super optimistic colour pallette.
Because his collages mix fashion and political issues into witty and creepy instagrams
Because his naive pen and paint illustrations look effortlessly pop artsy and somehow reminds us of Cartoon Network circa 1999.
Because who would have thought that pencil and neon pens could go so well together? our eyes are trippin’.
Because she transforms celebs into stylish, barbie-zombies through collage, pen and pencil
Because her weightless looking watercolours are therapy for the eyes
because her precise drawings and detail renderings prove that greyscale doesn’t have to be boring.
