Here are 16 accounts to follow if you like freaky found art @everythingisterrible666

I have always been a collector of images. Occasionally I'll make collages, but mostly I like keeping magazine cutouts and contextless screenshots sitting around. I sift through them sometimes, dreaming about doing something with them someday.


The multimedia artist Jim Shaw has an enormous assortment of religious pamphlets, posters, banners, and a collection of thrift store paintings, all shown at the New Museum in 2015. It's a collection that would make any visual-art-inclined weirdo envious. There's something strangely calming about found art, ugly art, and contextless media.

Maybe not everyone is as obsessive, but there are still a number of likeminded folks out there, gathering and uploading images they find freaky and cool and beautiful. From closeups of hands on the subway to isolated fruit stickers, follow these 16 accounts to see if you have a taste for bizarre found art — or, if you're like me, to get your fill of it.
