Negative Vibrations • Artist Spotlight
What got you in to Crypto art?
The idea of it. Ability to make digital art unique like traditional paintings. It was a big problem for those of us working with digital media but let's not forget the photographers who had to comissionaly destroy their original films to show that there won't be any new prints. With crypto art/NFT we can not only show artistic value of your work but what's really cool - a collectable value.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I don't have a simple answer for that. It's like daydreaming, catching small thoughts and shaping it into visual representation. Everything can inspire - small shapes, textures, sounds, motion, object or emotion. Everything can be transformed into a new idea when you add an artists unique vision to it. Inspiration is being able to look at things, thoughts and not judging them but rather trying to give them new form.
What do you think of traditional artwork?
There is no single period in history of art that is not at least remotely interesting to me. From primitive cave drawings, through modernism and contemporary art there is so much to learn and admire. It's not only aesthetics but also a possibility to looks at past times through artists eyes.
Do you think your art is fulfilling a purpose?
I really hope it is. I want people to look at my art and feel. I want my art to evoke emotions in people because that's my definition of art.
How did you start out as an artist?
It was almost 22 years ago when I first discovered 3d software. I didn't know where it will lead me but it was like a miracle discovery and I've dived in it instantly.
Who or what inspires your work?
My first and biggest inspiration to date was retro sci-fi and fantasy art my father showed me when I was a kid. It is still big part of my style but with time I started getting a lot of inspiration from different art fields like sculpture, photography, cinematography and of course classical paintings.
Which other artist(s) do you admire?
There are a lot of them. Everyday I'm discovering new amazing artists. Ones that comes to my mind first thought are Rembrandt, Moebius and Frazetta.
Final question, what’s next for you as an artist?
I'm working hard on my animation competences. I want my art to start moving. With current tools I can create so much more than still images.
