Supersonic is an art blog that is followed by over 460,000 Tumblr users making it one of the most viewed art sites on the Internet.
It was created in 2008 as a personal blog but has, since 2010, been specifically focused on art and artists. Supersonic seeks to chronicle the rise of the "Electronic School of New Contemporary Art."
I define this movement as the generation of artists merging Illustration and Fine Art from their use of the Internet and other electronic means. These artists have been exposed to endless amounts of aesthetic inspiration and saturated with pop culture their entire lives.
Furthermore their lives have been saturated with media coverage of war and worldwide horrors at a level no other generation has experienced, strongly influencing an escapist mentality within their art that often exhibits itself via strong themes of nostalgia and surrealism taking place in realistic and fantasy environments.
