Quick bio I just wrote for my iReport page you may like ~ stefan

I am an artistic guy that has been able to cross over into a few disciplines as a result of critical praise in those areas. My classical realistic art has had a few prestigious shows (show resume on my home site soon). My fashion debuted at the Waldorf Astoria in 2007 at Couture Fashion Week, and has been praised as innovative and futuristic; I call it Japanese Victorian (it is technically a revival of the Japanese and Eastern Victorian movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s).

I’m currently a member of ASCAP in their Classical division and have been preparing to release my music for a few years now. My music is wide ranging in it’s influences (a more complete page is being created on my home site). Primarily I am influenced by the work of Mozart and Bach (among many other Classical composers) as they relate to the popular music forms of the 20th century, rock, jazz, gospel, hip hop, electronica, and dance music (among many others).I’m in the process of releasing many albums, ebooks, and have numerous ways that I do that through what I call New Media (formerly known as social media and the Internet)

• Metacouture is like a fabric in between what enthusiasts or fans call the entertainment industry.We call it work. Just like you. 

• The word celebrity means celebrated. Like Aaron A. Brooks said, “Bowie is famous.” Art is anything done with intention and sincerity. Metacouture makes celebrated arts and culture content. 

• Metacouture is a tv station that is always on. A radio station you can see. A magazine with a new cover every day. Metacouture is the constantly new news in global arts and culture. 

• The chances you don’t know music, cinema, art, fashion, or performance art done by an artist associated with metacouture are as small as you reading this on Mars in 2011.

• Metacouture is not spam, porn, or fluff. Metacouture is as real as inspiration. 

• Metacouture is not your parents’ entertainment. Metacouture lives in the life you bring to it by just tuning in.

• Metacouture isn’t here to demand anything but your attention. Dare to be inspired.

• What if Arts and Culture were more important than fire? Or the wheel? …art, music, painting, sculpture, makeup, and hair styles all predate the widespread use of both. mmm…?

• Metacouture lives in the reality that all art is made for You. We don’t try to market what your soul already owns. Like all humans we bill for our time and skills.

• The difference between good art and bad art is a boring argument. Metacouture artists make art they Believe in. Metacouture Salon members lead by example. 

• Metacouture is more than a cool word for a salon.

History of Metacouture

Before becoming Metacouture™ The New Kind of News™

Metacouture evolved from a boutique couture fashion design company, to including fine art, then to becoming a record label to release music in 2008; all the while working in what used to be called PR to pay Stefan’s bills. 

"Artists, designers, and musicians have to wear many hats to get their work to market. It was all happening so fast that it was years before I realized my best commercial offer, at the time, was the promotional skills I developed to show my work to a larger audience. It just made sense to me at the time that I needed an internal PR component to what I was doing to save money, keep control of my company, while constantly adapting to the evolution of business between 2000-2010."

Originally founded by Stefan Daniel Bell to encompass his critically acclaimed futuristic couture and fashion designs, Metacouture quickly evolved to include his nationally acclaimed fine art career, and then his music in 2008.

As a result of determination and hard work, Stefan was part of the vanguard of what came to be called blogging. That is where Metacouture was born: first as a conversation about the future of fashion. “Originally, my goal was to have a platform to explain fashion designs that were so ahead of the market that I needed a way to explain what I was doing as the designs I was creating reached the mainstream, years after I had created them. I had to start releasing trade secrets, designs, and ideas so that that when the mainstream fashion market caught up, I had a way of publicly proving I had been there first. Patents can be violated and worked around. I needed public proof and a following to confirm they had seen it.”

Stefan found himself creating fashion first then later innovating new ways to promote and present designs publicly for wider market acclaim for his work- on a students’ budget.

"What happened by 2005 was that my fashion designs and art, though critically praised, were taking a back seat to my developing new ways to capitalize on emerging technologies, PR, and business practices utilizing what came to be known as social media. At the time, the majority of people were using websites like Yahoo, Google, and MySpace to date and live secret lives on the Internet. I was seen as fringe by both my audience and the business consultants that were coaching me through the process: people on the Internet saw me as weird for using my real name, and my business consultants were frustrated that I was promoting myself through websites (starting in 1999 with Yahoo, then Google, and then Web 2.0 sites like MySpace) that were seen as the new dating sites. I received a lot of attention online and the consistent question from all traditionally trained business people was, ‘It is very exciting that you are getting attention online, and, how are you going to make money from that?’

Celebrities, artists, designers, and entertainers with similar budget concerns and vision to see the breadth of his work approached Stefan to help them promote themselves and get their work shown to a wider audience. 

"At the same time I was working freelance in what used to be called PR, I was working on my own work, still trying to get it out there. Somewhere along the line the amount of work I was releasing began to show up in many search engines on websites like Google, along with my work for my clients from freelance PR consulting. I wasn’t just promoting people, I was a competent art director getting creative credit as well as being the strategist and technician completing the PR work behind the scenes."

This is a varied collection of videos, video blogs, and video commentary started in 2008. It gives a good range from personal to professional. My work, some work I have done with photographers like @JodiJones and @EthanAllen 

It has a large collection of my public sincerity announcements: a series of videos I have done of phrases I have used online to show what I look like when I say them.These are ranging from raw to professional, distant to close up. I have such a wide range of work it is hard to encapsulate, which is why I began last year to do an enormous number of video blogs to record myself to document my opinions, commentary, my views on life, reading of my articles, video blogs for posterity, messages to clients, friends, fans, and people all over the world who are saturated in the artistic process and are looking for constructive, positive messages reinforcing my core belief~ if you are inclined to create, you should.

In the span of the last three years my work has gotten wide acclaim, placed in search engines, and turned into something like a movement. I think most people think I work for a larger company, have a team of designers, and production staff. I don’t. The majority of my work was completed alone. Which isn’t to say it has been a solitary process~ my fans, Family, and close friends  have encouraged, prodded, and challenged me to show more, share more, try more….These videos are a tribute to anyone who has struggled with the creative process. It is not easy, however sometimes it has been quite fun. All in all I have to say it has been rewarding. I am glad that I chose to live a life of art in my early twenties. Art is not a choice, it is a calling. I am grateful for every minute I have been able to create; inspiration, craft, process, repeat.

Thank you for taking the time to look at these.
