A relative newcomer to the Crypto art scene, Pastel Crypto has quickly learned the ropes and cemented him or herself into the community. Creating digital art for longer than most have been into cryptocurrency.
With clear acumen for the creation and arrangement of digital imagery Pastel shows us some of most interesting arrangements of digital creation. Not only is the work beautiful to behold but it is also creating interesting themes not yet explored in crypto art. A clear theme runs throughout the work; oil painting is at the heart of almost every creation of Pastel’s, this theme creates a strong relevance and continuity with all his art.
Though not collected by any of the “Cryptoart Whales” yet with talents such as this it is only a matter of time. Enough from me lets hear from the artist.

What is your background in art, how did you get into crypto art?
I'm a self-taught digital artist from London. My earliest work that I produced and published was was back in 2012, I used artrage and procreate apps a lot to produce my earlier works. I only got into crypto art back in January of this year. So I'm relatively new, but have been involved in blockchain and crypto since 2017. Involved in quite a few projects as an investor. Got to remember, the crypto art scene is relatively new. So we as creators, curators and collectors of crypto art are all relatively early.
What artists inspire you most?
Artists inspired me the most is Banksy. I just love his boldness, daring and his message that he uses his street art to convey. Whilst studying. Have enjoyed the works of Monet, Van Gogh. Dali is inspiring to me particularly as I'm seeing a lot of his style in crypto art.
Why do you create digital art?
Why not? Just love it really. I enjoy creating. Even though I am relatively new to the crypto art scene. I have been amazed with the support from the publishers and my fellow artists. Means a lot to me. One day, I'd like people to say. They have a piece of my work and really enjoy it.
What is your process of creation?
That be telling. Haha. The first process, is the concept and visualising how I would, as an artist want the piece to look. The second is to prototype it, doodle or whatever. Get that thought of concept down. Thirdly, take a break! Go out, do something else entirely different! This helps a lot! Afterwards I'll start up the various apps, tools, programs. I use like 3 or 4 different. Depends on the complexity of the overall piece.
Is there any meaning you want to get across with your artwork?
I'd like many people to wonder and appreciate good digital art. There is no overall meaning being conveyed, each individual is different. It what makes us human after all really. The art, particularly the crypto art era is for the masses to really enjoy, see it in virtual galleries, to own it. You can own affordable art!
has crypto art impacted your life?
Early days! But I'm always learning and very appreciative! I'm slowly gaining fans and there are quite a few that like my work! But no crypto art collecting whales though! haha.
Any advice for people thinking about joining crypto art?
Have been reading a lot about traditional artists wanting to join the crypto art scene. I'd say give it a go! There are many platforms out there like BAE, that can help you to grow as an artist. Like I said before, we are all EARLY! Main advice would really be is, never change who you are!
Anything else you would like to add?
No. You do know this is my first ever intro/bio?! Thanks for reading and hopefully many more creations to come from me!
