The Art Hoe aesthetic is an aesthetic based around a love for art, a connection to nature, painting and flowers. Created by a Tumblr user known as sensitiveblackperson, the Art Hoe scene was originally created for POC (people of color) and has been accused of being whitewashed, but the Art Hoe community celebrates diversity and anybody can be an Art Hoe regardless of their heritage or race. Famous original Art Hoes include actress Amandla Stenberg, stylist Rian Phin, illustrator/musician Jenelle Lewis, and rapper Babeo Baggins.


Typical Art Hoe fashion items include the following:

  • Fjallraven Kånken Bags
  • Anything associated with "Art" culture or artists works on them
  • Mom jeans
  • Graphic tees
  • Converse sneakers of any colour
  • Art socks
  • Art supplies, paint
  • Overalls/painted overalls
  • Striped meadow shirts
  • Any mustard yellow clothing
  • Vans Old Skool, Checkered slip-on, Classics
  • Dr Martens or Mary Janes
  • Colorful hairclips

Some common hairstyles include:

  • Messy buns
  • Bob cut
  • Classic Ponytail
  • Pigtails
  • Microbangs

Art Hoes are drawn to a vintage aesthetic, often shopping at thrift stores, Urban Outfitters, and even some lesser known fashion brands. DIY culture is present, and you will find people with this aesthetic painting or embroidering their own designs on their clothing.
