Into Alexa Chung and Art? You Have to Follow This Instagram

Adrianna Barrionuevo

If you haven't heard of the ArtlexaChung Instagram account, prepared to be wowed. María and Beatriz Valdovín are the brilliant minds behind the art-meets-fashion account that notes similarities between fashion It Girl Alexa Chung and famous works of art. From Matisse to Warhol, art and fashion lovers alike will get a kick out of the thoughtfully curated posts. It was Alexa Chung herself who first put this account on the map after regramming an ArtlexaChung creation for her followers.

The two sisters created ArtlexaChung in 2015 and have since gained nearly 50,000 followers. So how do they continue to find inspiration for these refined memes? For one, María has a master's in art history, so that helps. But Beatriz told Elle, "Sometimes the inspiration is in the painting: We see a masterpiece of Goya, Magritte, Modigliani, or Bouguereau and then we find a pose, a gesture, a piece of clothing, a hairstyle, or a landscape that reminds us of Alexa's pictures. Other times, it's the other way 'round: Her photos remind us of art."
