5 Notable Artists Redefining the DIY Aesthetic – PRINT . MAGAZINE

If you’ve spent some time scrolling on Instagram and following one or two influencers, you may have stumbled upon a brand called Stony Clover Lane. The brand is known for selling its customizable accessories, and the result is this highly polished, handcrafted aesthetic that reminds me of my previous DIY projects.

While the early COVID days inspired mostly boredom-fueled DIY moments, during this (sort of) post-COVID era, I’ve noticed a rise in handmade aesthetics. Each artist in today’s collection uses friendly creative techniques to create a variety of distinctive works, from abstract curiosity to merging cultures through illustration.

Eric Stefansky is a Chicago artist whose print-centric work lies at the intersection of irony and self-deprecation. His art is big and bold, and the almost immature tone of the lettering paired with tacky phrasing adds a distinct duality to his pieces. Each photo explores diverse themes, from romance to rejection, in a consistent style that draws you in and makes you want to see more. The perfect balance between Stefansky’s naivety and wisdom made me surpass his creativity.

Pixie Pravda lives an interesting life. Having lived in Holland, Curaçao, Thailand and Spain, he immersed himself in new cultures and lifestyles more than the average artist. The text-based conceptual artist is currently based out of Brussels, Belgium, and is using his glamorous Instagram account to create visual poetry. Each witty publication has the power to make the viewer question the intent of Pravda art, and all art in general. For example, one piece says, “This work has the power to make you think, if you think about it,” challenging the viewer to question his response not only to the piece in question, but no matter what he looks at next.
