Today we’d like to introduce you to Sheldon Angelov, Kevin Vishteh, and Stephen Bodie.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
It began with a passion for photography. We have been shooting photos for several years now. Learning the basics of photography has given us an appreciation for the work that photographers put into their craft. Through many failed Instagram ventures, we refined our ability to use social media to build an influential community. Through the steady growth of mapthewild, we found that through a mutually beneficial relationship with photographers, we have been able to grow ourselves as a brand. As a brand, we are working to offer people products that not only support our community but are environmentally friendly and bring awareness to environmental issues.
Please tell us about your art.
By building a community through Instagram, we have given ourselves a platform that has allowed us to create a self-sufficient business so that we can continue to use our creativity through our clothing brand. Furthermore, through being environmentally conscious in our planting of one tree with every product sale, we hope to generate enough influence to start our own environmental organization.
As an artist, how do you define success and what quality or characteristic do you feel is essential to success as an artist?
Creating something that people can identify with and feel passionate about is the key to finding one’s place in whatever artistic niche they find themselves in.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Our Instagram @mapthewild is where we hold the most influence. Our website mapthewildclothing.com will be launching soon, where visitors can find both our products and information about our mission. Through the use of an ever-growing social media platform, we are able to reach more people than we would have ever been able to locally. Through the support of our brand, people will directly help the conservation of our planet. Our brand is supported through the growth of our social media platforms and business as a whole.
