“I like instagram specially because of the new friends I make everyday.”


His name is Wladmir…


“My name is Wladmir (@Wlad), I am dentist and have a clinic, and besides that I’m a neuroscientist and professor. I have always liked  art, specially photography, but I never thougt of following a professional course before I started with instagram. Until 3 years ago I painted large canvases as a hobby, but because of my  intense professional life I had to take a break on my artistic side. A friend introduced me to instagram at a party and I liked it so much so I began to post personal photos and landscapes. Later, since I was missing making art, I started to make art on phone downloading photo editing apps. Today  I merge photos with artistic landscapes, always trying to generate a doubt or feeling through them. I am also one of the @igersoftheday moderators and creator of @skull_portraits, and my art can be seen on this website, where the principal focus is the mobileart.”


Thank you very much Wladmir, for your contribution to this website!
