A Tumblr Devoted to 80s Art

Here’s the thing about the ’80s: Some of us actually grew up in them. And for us, seeing a Tumblr full of art from that decade doesn’t so much trigger an Internet-age wet dream as a blast of straight-up nostalgia — for the kinds of things we remember hanging in our rich friends’ parents living rooms, or on the walls of our orthodontist, or in fancy department-store furniture displays. We’re not sure which of the two motivated designer Jason Kawood of Saskatchewan, Canada, to start said Tumblr back in 2011, but he’s been going strong with it ever since, and apparently taking inspiration from it as well. Check out our favorites from his curation over the past few years below, then head over to the 80s Art site to choose your own. Pictured above: John Noestheden
