Different styles in the visual arts inspire creativity in voiceovers. Whether it’s the hyperrealistic Baroque paintings of Jan Vermeer in the 1600s, the neo-impressionistic work of Georges Seurat in the 1800s, (introducing Pointillism to the art conversation), or the subsequent break-all-the rules-bold work of Post-Impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, who paved the way for an explosion […]
