For centuries self portraiture has allowed artists to express their identity, reveal complex emotions and tell powerful stories. But something that was once the domain of artists has since become part of our everyday language in the form of the ‘selfie’. Instead of shunning selfies as a form of narcissism or a sign of our disposable culture, we’re asking people to turn the concept of selfies on their head and bring art into the mix. So what you waiting for? Express yourself, tell your story and join the #ArtoftheSelfie revolution.
