What’s special about being GenZ? How it relates to your art?
GenZ kiddos, grew up with technology. We are more accepting and pushing for change to make our world better. We are growing up in the information age. GenZ relates to my art, because without access of endless hours of youtube video lectures, podcasts and free pdfs online, I don’t think I’d have half as much knowledge of concepts that i put into my art. Social Media has taught me so much about self-acceptance and realizing there’s communities of people just like me. My art discusses loneliness often, but as GenZ i see that I’m not always alone.
What’s special about being an artist in this generation? What’s the role of artists in today’s world?
Artists in this generation get to see their worth be realized once they’re alive. Artists have hours of free education online & tips and trick forums all over the internet. I’ve never been in an art class, everything I know about shading comes from some guy on youtube haha. Social media let us share with anyone we want, and I’ve received opportunities I don’t think would have ever happened if I didn’t have social media. The role of artists in today’s world is to be authentic & have fun doing what they love.
What does art mean to you? Why you become an artist?
Art is my life. Art saved my life from my darkest moments. Without art, I wouldn’t be alive. Without art, I would have no purpose. I became an artist because it is my true love, and it would be impossible for me to do anything else. This is all I want.
Your goals for the future? What kind of artists you want to be? What do you want to achieve/express through your art?
In the future, it would be really cool to be able to live off my art and spend my days painting / drawing in my studio. I want to be the artist I’m meant to be, happy and following my own path. To try and say anything specific would be subconsciously boxing myself in, i think. I want to be authentic and show my feelings through color and very fluid lines. I want to show the world who i am inside my soul.
Where do you think you are at in your life (struggles & growth)?
I’m a senior in high school, currently. I live with my grandparents, who aren’t supportive of art. My entire family dismisses my dreams of being an artist. They wish i was a doctor. Right now, I think I’m at a stage just before I fly to the moon. It hurts me to have no support from my own blood. Oh well. So much has changed in my life despite my struggles, and once I’m moved out and completely focused on being myself. I imagine so much will change. I just can’t wait to have zero distractions.
Which artists in the history are your role models?
My favorite artists are george condo, zach thompson, caravaggio, ladon alex, and myself.
How to be a successful GenZ artist?
To be a successful GenZ artist, don’t be afraid to be yourself. Share your work and get the word out there. And NEVER STOP making art.
Technically define GenZ artists (like what tools are you using?)
GenZ artists can be from any medium. Currently, I’m using my 11 inch ipad pro and procreate.
What do you think of the established traditional fine art world/market VS. cryptoart world? Which one do you prefer? How do you imagine the future of cryptoart would be?
I think the established traditional fine art world is due for some change. I think a lot of it is inaccessible. Cryptoart has changed my life and set me for a whole new path, I love how anyone from anywhere can decide to tokenize on big platforms and make a living just like any other fine artist. It’s beautiful. It makes me cry, it’s awesome. I imagine the future would have more people educated, and be discussed more in mainstream media.
