We recently did a challenge with Ksenia the founder from Breakfast Criminals on PicsArt. Her love for all things healthy made her the go to guru for countless celebrities and brands. In an exclusive interview she reveals to PicsArt how she got started and what delicious meals will look great on your next health food pictures. via PicsArt Ksenia, how did you come up with breakfast criminals and when did you start your account? The idea of my business, Breakfast Criminals, came to me during a meditation. I was going through a rough patch of my life when I was in between jobs, broken hearted and living in a friend’s living room. That’s when I really got into yoga and started meditating regularly. Starting every day with a delicious breakfast – colorful acai bowls – prepared with love and a positive affirmation was my way of taking it one day…

Tasya van Ree is probably one of the coolest artists out there. She is the founder of the Intergalactic Girls Club, a badass girl’s club, and PicsArt is absolutely fascinated with her art work. In our exclusive Q&A she gives us some great out of space advice. Tune in into Tasya’s world. When did you decide you wanted to be an artist? At a very young age. It sort of came naturally to me. Whenever I had a free moment, I would travel to imaginary worlds and try to replicate the experience on paper. I would try to connect the dots from all of these obscure experiences to what I was thinking in that very moment. So random and vulnerable, but always embodied a sort of promise that made sense to only me. What is your advice to young artists? Especially young girls. My advice, always, is to believe you…

For her, it’s not only important to create memories, but to save them for a lifetime. That’s why Victoria began creating bold, colorful edits of her favorite memories with friends and family.

Their profile is the perfect place to go for endless amounts of inspiration. via PicsArt We got to dive into the creative minds of all four of the girls. Check out our interview with them below! What’s the inspiration behind the collages you make? Emma: I get inspiration from a lot of different things. When we first started, we would make collages inspired by people’s names, which people get weirdly into. I think we can…

Distinctively quirky, vibrant and colorful, he shoots all the major fashion shows around the globe (he was the only photographer allowed backstage at Chanel last season), and his images regularly appear in titles such as the New York Times, V magazine, Grazia, Vogue and Harper’s.

I started tinkering with my granddad’s Kodak Brownie camera as a kid when we were on family holiday by the sea. From there it just grew. I always had a camera with me on school trips, afternoon excursions, etc. When I left school, I discovered Sydney nightlife. I loved the effort and creativity people put into their outfits for going out clubbing, so I started documenting that, which got picked up by the street press. Some of glossy…
