David Schwen’s Cool and Quirky Instagram Photos

While many people use Instagram for different purposes – like sharing recent family photos or bragging about how much money one has – there’s a huge segment of the Instagram population that’s comprised of artists and photographers who use the popular photo sharing app as a creative outlet.

Like Minnesota-based artist Brock Davis, David Schwen’s Instagram photos make us see the excitement in everyday life and inspire us to explore our own creative side. Whether he’s adding 8-bit eyes to a hand towel or pretending he’s being attacked by a barrage of paper arrows, one thing’s for sure, Schwen doesn’t hold back.
