One of the wonderful things that artists have to offer is a compelling story to share. These three artist stories have been put into virtual book form using the Steller smartphone app.
I’m a big believer in stories. Stories are how we understand the world, and each other. They capture the imagination and speak to us in a very elemental way. Artists who speak about their work through a story that delights or fascinates are more memorable to their audience.
What makes a great story? A concept that people relate to, and care about. A process which is intriguing and draws the viewer in. And excellent images of your work that give professional presentation. Steller makes it easy to create a short story using text, imagery and videos. It can be shared widely on social media, embedded on your website, or sent to your email list.
Take a look at the impact these artists make through sharing their stories:
