If you’re sick of scrolling through endless photos of latte art and sunsets on Instagram, we discovered the one account you need to start following for a much-needed change. Visual artist Adam Hillman specializes in assembling colorful masterpieces that are so incredibly soothing to look at. Seriously, just looking at them is sure to give you an eyegasm.
He transforms everyday items, from cereal and jellybeans to crayons and toothpicks, into true works of art. Each piece is perfectly organized in a way that will make any Type A person smile with delight. His intricate designs typically take up to three hours to construct, although some have taken him up to three days — talk about dedication!
We reached out to the creative mastermind to hear a bit more about what drove him to start crafting these aesthetically pleasing patterns back in 2015. “I’m inspired by websites like the Tumblr ‘Things Organized Neatly‘, [the] subreddit ‘Oddly Satisfying,’ art historical movements like minimalism, and artists like Mondrian,” he told POPSUGAR. He also takes time to consciously appreciate “the colors and pattern of everyday things.”
Last year, Instagram “aesthetes” (a term for people who have a special appreciation for art and beauty) started noticing his one-of-a-kind work on social media, and his account skyrocketed from having fewer than 1,000 followers to more than 100,000 in 2016. Adam posts a different creation every few days, and also sells prints of his fun patterns on Society6. Sit back, relax, and read on to feel the soothing tranquility wash over you.
