About @renaissance__man

Proving that a Renaissance Man can have a bawdy side, David III is a rising Instagram star, saturating the network with incredible memes. Often employing pop-retro visuals, classic movie posters and Americana icons, David puts his unique spin on commercialism, media tropes, and politics through sarcasm paired with millennial-nostalgic visuals. His increasingly viral memes often amass thousands of individual likes, as the Instagram page’s popularity has inspired Renaissance Mart with wearable meme merch, featuring anything-goes dark humor from a “No More Tears” pill-juggling clown sweatshirt to a “burn it down” Applebees-inspired baseball cap.
