Thanks for agreeing to do this Federico, why don’t you tell us about yourself for our audience?
I’ve been an artist for many many years, from viral videos on social media to bronze sculptures, I’ve tried to explore the humanities intersecting with art. About a decade ago, I began an inner journey to explore the intimate conditions of the human soul. From there, I moved to India and lived in an ashram, eventually moving west through existential pathways.
Wow! That’s deep! Tell us a bit about your art. The NFTs you’ve released are incredible and poignant and do not require explanation or interpretation.
Thank you. I view art as a materialization of experiences as well asa a medium of introspection to share with others. As you can tell, my digital art focuses on technology, but I try to include the technology piece in all my creations as a metaphor for the contemporary that explores the human condition.
Today so many interactions and addictions stem from media and social networks. My art explores the arousal in the human experience considering the act part integrand of the intention. My sculptures, installations, and videos are vehicle or vessel that I hope provides a profound journey or adventure that discovers shared interiority of the artist and user.
Well, your art definitely conveys that. We’re huge fans. Let’s get to know you a little better. What is the one thing you can’t live without?
I can’t live without my smartphone…. <irony>
You’re already a successful and well established artist, what made you pursue NFT art as a medium?
We ask everyone this question, what is the one piece of NFT art you with you had purchased but missed out on?
Like many of the NFT artists who’ve just entered the space, I have not dedicated myself to collecting NFT, I will in the future, but I’ve been focusing on my work first. I make art for the collectors and to dissect the human condition. I’m sure there are pieces I’ve missed out on, but I want to collect art that is beautiful, not because its is profitable. At the moment I’m investing in other type of NFT as for example Digital Lands where build artistic experiences. I believe that is the future.
Where do you see the NFT space heading?
I think NFT will become our common use and part of the public opinion and they will undermine the material value of goods because there will be new materials, rare, precious and safe.
What is your biggest piece of art NFT or otherwise?
My big work is a monumental bronze sculpture, realized for Eidoo Wallet with the intention to tell about the crypto world through a sculpture. The work was an installation for the most important squares in London and reposted by the worldwide media.
