What is the Anglecore Aesthetic

Angelcore Aesthetic color palette, symbols and elements:

Of course, as the name says, Angelcore comes from, well, Angels.

Although angels have a very strong religious symbology, the Angelcore aesthetic is not necessarily related to religion. This is because the greatest reference of this aesthetic is the angels painted in Renaissance and Neoclassical art, which represented a time of transition and of scientific, cultural and artistic rebirth after the Middle Ages. Identifying with this aesthetic (and any other) is much more about the emotional appeal that a set of images has on us!

Angels in art aesthetic:

The angel aesthetic of the angelcore movement comes specifically from the cupid or cherub, from the Renaissance arts. Imagine that unreachable beauty of angels you see on classic art and paintings: benevolent, pure, spiritual, and loving beings. Mix that with the clumsy, cute, childish cupid and Cherub aesthetic and you will get what Angelcore is about,

Angels are all about paradise purity and love. Cupid, in mythology, is the son of Aphrodite and the God of Love, and that’s why colors like pink (the color of love), light blue, transparent and white (color of the sky, spirit, and paradise, home of the angels) predominate in this aesthetic, which means this is an aesthetic with an extremely girly visual mood.

Cupid and angel aesthetic: light Blue and pink sky, clouds, wings, free, clumsy, naughy attittude, serenity, vintage pastel color palette, romantic pink flowers, flowy fabrics

Angel wings aesthetic:

Angels are always pictured with wings. After all, wings are what lift them to the skies and make them free, divine creatures from the heavens.

Greek statutes references and Angel statue aesthetic:

Not only angels but also Classic Greek Statues, angel statues and floral greek gardens are big references for this aesthetic. The iconic and mysterious Venus de Milo is one of the most famous Greek statues and a big element from the Angelcore aesthetic.

Venus was often painted with angels and she was also the goddess of love in Greek mythology and the mother of an angel (cupid). She was adored by renaissance artists, therefore, a strong element of the feminine in the angelcore art and aesthetics. One important thing of the renaissance is that nudity was not considered something to be ashamed of. Women and men were beautifully portrayed in full nude and one of the biggest classic examples is The birth of Venus painted by Sandro Botticelli. So, in my personal interpretation, angelcore is also about being proud, comfortable and happy in your own body – in a very pure, feminine and natural way.
