Why i love the NFT Cryptoart scene
Peanut butter and Jelly, Crypto Blockchain Technology and Visual Art… You know that feeling when something you didn’t know you were waiting for just suddenly comes into your life from nowhere? That’s exactly how I feel about NFT art, it feels like the art genre I’ve been waiting (or is it searching?) for all my life.
Being a fan of blockchain as a life changing concept and technology, a hobbyist cryptocurrency trader and (obviously) an artist who makes trippy alien infused motion Giff type graphics it seems like a perfect symbiosis, a synchronistic direction and delightful fusion full of possibility and wonder.
I’ve been super passionate about creating art all my life but have always felt there was something missing in terms of delivery and possibility from traditional art forms, cryptoart is like the rug that was stolen from Lebowski, it really ties the whole freaking proverbial room together, hundreds of times over!
Some things I love about the cryptoart scene; the fact that the audience is a great global community, the work is varied and mostly fresh, even when it’s not particular talented it’s still interesting conceptually, the purchase and proof of art ownership by the buyer is not possible to counterfeit through the implementation of smart blockchain backed contracts, the galleries are de-centralized and the collectors come from no one fixed geolocation, the style can be pretty much anything.
I will be constantly updating this page because at time of writing this I am still not officially minted or belonging to one particular platform, but as mentioned above I’ve been creating NFT art style graphics for many moons already – so I like to think and hope it’s only a matter of time.
Needless to say I am very excited to be venturing into the world of NFT art, like Daft Punk, I’m out to get lucky. I’ve been creating art a long-time, as a mural street artist, body painter, digital illustration artist and lover of tech art collaborations. NFT perfectly plugs the gap for when designs which were once destined for print became too static for lack of better expression.
Often during my varied personal design process journeys I found myself going of on tangents and ended up with animated versions of what were destined to actually be print pieces. I always got a buzz from seeing the latest visual technology get hybridized and assimilated into the art world sphere, be it projection mapping, clever graffiti time lapses or good old fashioned projection mapping, I really do feel like NFT art is a scene I’ve been waiting for all my creative life.
