Many artists have pivotal pieces in their portfolios that marked a turning point in their careers or personal growth. Do you have such a piece? If so, could you tell us about it?
I believe I have at least three pivotal pieces in my portfolio.
The first one is the digital collage I made for “The Art of Gender and Sexuality”. It marked the beginning of my journey in the web3 space as a creator – before that, I was just a watcher. Plus, it influenced the topics in my work: freedom of expression, sexuality, sensuality of the body.
The second one is not a single piece but a whole project: the 1mouth collection, made of 50 digital collages. It defined my signature style. A lot of people noticed I was creating a series of similar work and, while the full collection may look simpler than my other works, it’s definitely something that you can recognize as a full collection.
The third pivotal piece that marked a turning point is my SuperRare genesis: “Last call” led me to a whole different kind of collage. While everybody always tries to add their story into the pieces, in this collection I’m trying to let people find or create their own story based on the elements and inputs they see. It’s like a role game: you have the elements in the artwork, your background, and you create your own story based on the world that is around you.
Who are your top three favorite NFT artists currently, and how have they influenced your own style or approach?
Long story short: Slimesunday, Beeple, DeeKay.
The only one who has influenced my style a lot is Slimesunday, I was in his discord and joined a lot of his weekly challenges – I won, also! This helped me crafting my style and improving my Photoshop skills. Plus, his art is super hot and inspiring, he’s a master with textures, sometimes I tried to emulate how the texture was, in a specific work.
Beeple and DeeKay didn’t influence my style but I could stare at their art for hours.
