We all know Snapchat is great for sexting. But if you’re not planning on using it for that purpose, you might wonder, what’s the point?
The best feature of Snapchat (other than the reduced possibility of photos of your genitals ending up on Facebook) is the touchscreen drawing. With it, you can make masterpieces that last only 10 seconds or less.
While mostly these are doodles sent only for fun, the possibility for serious art to be created with Snapchat isn’t unreasonable. It’s a new technology for how popular photography is consumed; digital artists are surely experimenting with it now.
As acting curator of the BuzzFeed Museum of Modern Snapchats, I present this collection of inspired works of Snapart, preserved for posterity by screenshotting (poor form!).
