1. What inspired you to become an artist?
It happened in 2010, in the first year of the University, we were told that if we make a poster for a college competition, they would be released from studies for a couple of days, and of course I agreed. And then I first discovered Photoshop. After a short time, I realized that this is my business that I want to do all my life. I was inspired by the fact that you can do your favorite thing and get pleasure from it, constantly pumping your level and trying new styles, you can talk about different things in your art and that's good.
2. Please tell us about the artwork which, you are most proud of.
I really like my series of works "I Handle it"
NFT - "Creative Burnout"
NFT - "Pannick Attack"
NFT - "Auction"
This is a collection of 3 works, the most personal, art I have experienced.
Three years of my life were spent in depression, apathy and creative burnout + later panic attacks were added.
But time passed and I coped with them. In these arts, I raise important issues that creative people face.
These are perhaps the most important works in my life, they contain a lot of pain and anxiety.
By the way, the third work of this series - "Auction" is still available for purchase on the foundation.
3. What main statement did you want to make with that artwork?
When your business is not going well, it is important to remember that this is only a period of time that will soon end and the best time in your life will come. It is important to motivate yourself to continue doing what you love.
P.S And of course, if you can't do it yourself, then turn to a psychologist and a psychotherapist!
4. What else you wanna tell us about your art?
Now I want to divide my work into two topics: Social problems, problems of society and Surrealism.
Therefore, there will be two audience camps 😁
5. What do you recommend a new NFT artist to look out for?
The first thing to know is that you shouldn't waste your time for invitations to premium NTF platforms, there are "rarible" and "opensea" - no invitations are needed here.
In general, try to use all the platforms around and start studying the crypto market.
6. How do you see the future of NFTs?
Initially, I was skeptical about NFT, but I realized one thing. The community is the most powerful force, and as long as it lives, NFT will also live.
Now everything is just beginning and it is difficult to say what awaits us, but it seems to me that this will be for a long time (or forever)
But I can say with confidence that in the future more and more people will be obsessed with this and their lives will change for the better.
