Ellen Sheidlin is a 25-year-old Russian artist who became a global Instagram star with 4.5 million followers on the social media platform. The key to her success and fame was in her bizarre and thought-provoking photos that were uploaded to her creative and whimsical fantasy world that is her Instagram feed.
1It was her selfies gained her the most number of followers
“I realized that the main interest for my fans to follow me was my face. My selfies collected the greatest number of likes and comments and then I decided that the best way to preserve and multiply interest in me is to add myself to my idea. Today, normal selfies are the most unvalued photos, the public always waits for something unusual, they are absolutely not satisfied with just a photo. Everything sooner or later goes out of fashion: style, colors, even memes, but an idea will never become mainstream, it is eternal”, she said.
