The intersection of art and tech has become a prevalent part of our society, In just a few years we’ve seen ai created art sell for over 400k. But what can make ai or code generated artwork truly fantastic is human input. With urban oxygen the concepts explored while simple are impactful in their execution. In some works, the lines seem to flow and push in a multitude of directions. However, on closer inspection the lines only move in straight lines.
The simplistic beauty of these moving images is hypnotic, and one can spend hours just looking at one of the works. Oxygens work is completely unique in crypto art and is one of the few of its kind that could easily transfer to the many mediums that bright the gap into the physical space.
In short, the work is a meditation one that is well worth the look and consideration of any collector.
What is your background in art? How did you get into crypto art?
I’m currently studying computer science. I started getting into art about 2 years ago, then realized I could use programming languages as an artistic expression tool and went from there.
What artists inspire you the most?
There was a Wassily Kandinsky art book at home when I was a kid, which I used to look at all the time. I now realize how much that influenced my current work. Sometime later I came across the work of Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian Joan Miró and Yayoi Kusama, which also played a role in my art.
Why do you create digital art?
Art is another way to express myself, and it’s fun! It’s interesting learning new things and applying them in my own way and see how my style develops.
What is your process of creation?
Sometimes I get an idea for a piece which I then carry out. Though for the most part it feels like a process of exploration including some trial and error to find a model, which is usually just the movement. After finding it I move onto ‘polishing’ the piece. Which consists in picking shapes, sizes colors, and other details to reach the end piece.
The goal of most of my pieces is to bring the viewer to a relaxed, meditative state. Even though they were not made with a specific message in mind, there’s usually some abstract meaning to be found.
Has crypto art impacted your life?
Even though I haven’t been in the crypto art scene for long, I can already see how promising it is, specially for people in the digital art scene like myself.
Any advice for people thinking about joining crypto art?
It’s important to be honest with yourself about your motivation to join. If you don’t know why you’re doing it it’s probably a good idea to give the thought some time until you find an answer coming from your heart. Otherwise it can be a trying thing that will tire you out.
Anything else you would like to add?
Creativity is inside of all of us. Even though I always saw myself as a numbers
person and thought I would never really get into art, once I found a tool apply the things that I learned from a completely different area I fell in love with it. It’s a different way to express what we feel and think, and it’s something we all have access to. Once we find we are naturally drawn to it in a way that somehow makes it so that it never really feels like work, but much more like play.
