My vision on bridging the gap between trad art and web3 digital art
Throughout my journey as an artist, I have always focused on creating art that tells a story, no matter the medium. Being a full time artist for a decade now, I know how hard the process of getting your art seen and understood is, not even talking about building a community around it.
As a matter of fact, entering web3 as an IRL artist feels like a completely new and different journey. Being a contemporary artist creating physical art, bridging the gap between physical and digital art is a major milestone I want to achieve with my art.
Web3 has its own codes and values, communication is different, community is at least as important (if not more in certain cases) as the art, providing utility for collectors has become an industry standard…There are only so many things to adjust in order to build legitimacy in this space as an artist coming from trad art. This required me to constantly be up to date with trends and what’s going on in the space to be able to innovate and build a project that brings novelty to digital art.
When it comes to utility around my project, I really wanted to challenge myself and build something different by going the extra mile, which implied stepping far out of my comfort zone as an artist. With this in mind, I chose to surround myself with skilled and experienced people in the web3 to build a project that makes actual sense and has legit reasons to exist within this space. Together with my team we have built a solid roadmap that brings together my IRL community and the growing web3 one.
The ultimate goal of my collection “Like a brush” is to create art that strongly resonates with people, while providing value to both my IRL and web3 communities in the long run.
