About Ashley Santangelo

Ashley Santangelo doesn’t just lip sync, like a lot of other musers do—she creates unique stop-motion music videos starring herself and the world she creates around her using cut paper and paint (often illustrating the lyrics of the song). She has been featured on the app a number of times, including for her video for the Gnash song “i hate u, i love u,” bringing a lot of newfound attention to her distinctive feed. Another favorite video is for “Cold Water” by Major Lazer, where Ashley dives into a universe made of colored paper cutouts laid on the floor, shuffling between the stars and the ocean while lying on her back. @ashleysantangelo and her lo-fi productions are remarkably fresh, and bring new inspiration to musers everywhere.
