Hey Alex! When and how did you start creating art in general? Already at a young age or later on?
I always remember myself creating something: carving in wood, drawing, music, 3D art, and, of course, lego! I honestly can’t remember a time where I was not creating something.
But I never thought about it as art or planned to get into the art world. It was always an outlet I never shared with anyone.
However, as time progressed, I found myself designing marketing materials for my own endeavours. I realised I had more fun creating these than whilst dealing with the business itself.
How did you go from there to becoming a crypto artist?
I learned about the crypto world for the first time when I was running a small coffee shop. And then… COVID-19 hit. I was sitting at home, with no work, joking around about the idea that I would love to create material for people if I would be paid in crypto.
Literally a month later I learned about NFTs. This was, like many others, thanks to the big news of Beeple’s multi-million-dollar sale. My coffee shop was already closed by then. As I had literally nothing else to do, I decided to dive into the NFT space with no research whatsoever. That’s how I started this journey.
What about your style, how did you develop that?
The style itself developed without me thinking too much about it. I love the art you can find on old Sci-Fi books and their overall vintage looks.
I learned that my style fit sthe ‘collage genre’ from my mentor @ArtAsAnarchy. So I'm exploring this genre for now.
We often see an eye in your artworks. How did you come up with this?
Thee eye stands for a point of view, and it's also a very powerful icon of knowledge
I encrypt a lot of messages in my work, some of which will never be decrypted without my knowledge. I also tend to put a lot of personal things in my pieces but I prefer to hide them.
That’s due to my paranoiac nature.. ;-)
