Growing up in the '90s, back when video stores roamed the Earth like the mighty titans of entertainment that they were, I developed a deep and abiding love for a certain kind of aesthetic that I can only describe as "VHS." The lurid art and bizarre situations that you'd see strolling down the action movie aisle resonated with me in the way that few things have since, and when I see an artist like Chase Taylor, whose art somehow manages to capture that aesthetic perfectly, I'm immediately a fan.
That might sound a little dismissive, but it's not. There's a boundary-pushing energy to Taylor's art that's just beautiful, especially when it's Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze or gorillas cruising in a convertible. Check out a few of my favorites below!
