I started these pieces with a simple idea: painting stereotypes of cryptoart on pieces of cardboard. In this way, I wanted to talk about the opportunities that this community and this technology gives to third world artists. Opportunities that, in fact, allow us to put ourselves on equal conditions with any artist around the world, and to be able to make known and sell our own work.
But then I decided to make it a little more complex. I began to think precisely about
those stereotypes of cryptoart and to contrast them with the reality that I daily see around me. It was then, I discovered the second layer of depth of this artistic project.
On the first level, the cardboard works in the form of a badge: artists of the third world have the concrete possibility of being cryptoartists and even being able to sustain themselves with their work. And on the second level, these stereotypes of cryptoart are very distant from us, and if we keep indulging them without asking any questions or without stopping to reflect, we run the risk of not showing our own reality.
From this gratitude and this contrast, my new collection, "Shadows of a cliché", arises.
