The Aesthete Hunter is an inspirational blog about contemporary culture with a special focus on contemporary art. A place to share and celebrate beautiful things from a quirky and philosophical perspective. From Miuccia Prada to Wittgenstein, and with a special interest in furry animals. Otters mostly.

Irene Martínez Marín is a twenty-something Spanish Ph.D candidate in Aesthetics interested in nostalgia as an aesthetic emotion. She is currently based in Sweden discovering the snow for the first time. Her interest for the nostalgic emerged with the aesthetic experience she felt through the art she loved. With J.D Salinger´s books, contemplating Joseph Cornell´s boxes, watching a Wes Anderson film or listening to The Smiths. This blog is her way of collecting the things she once found and liked in order to come later in the future and remember them emitting a melancholic sigh.

aesthete (noun)

A person who is appreciative of and sensitive to art and beauty.
