Originally conceived as a fun and visual exchange vehicle, Snapchat has become a surprising outlet for  artistic expression – where the sky is the limit.

Capturing and sending images that self-destruct after no more than 10 seconds, the ability to paint over the image has given budding artists a new medium to engage with and express themselves.


With an open book of ways people choose to tell their story, combining images of themselves or others with that of their imagination.
