Roman Kaelin • Artist Spotlight

What got you in to Crypto art?

By working in the visual effects industry it was hard to miss and the idea was very intriguing.

Where do you get your inspiration?

In everything surrounding us, mostly nature and art.

What do you think of traditional artwork?

I'd don't really like the distinction between digital and traditional art. But what I like about traditional art is the more hand crafted and tactile aspect.

Do you think your art is fulfilling a purpose?

I'd like to think that and I'm pursuing it, but than again it's probably pretty meaningless.

How did you start out as an artist?

Created short films and animation by self initiative and through university.

Who or what inspires your work?

I can find inspiration in anything really. The ones that poke out would probably be nature, film, science and art.

Which other artist(s) do you admire?

Hard to name just a few, but I'd say Spike Jonze, David Fincher and Wes Anderson are some of the super inspiring artists/directors out there for me.

Final question, what’s next for you as an artist?

Currently wrapping up some commercials and a short film and starting to work on some new commercials and also another short film.
