Who or What Inspired this African Mask NFT Art Collection?
I was thinking about creating a rare art collection that will provide value to those who end up investing as art patrons and collectors of the art.
I had already begun a series of African tribal masks, and one of my siblings suggested why don’t you make them a collection of NFTs he talked to me about it for almost two years. I didn’t budge because, as a Scorpio, I am stubborn and will not do anything if I don’t feel compelled or inspired to do that thing.
But I do listen, and I am very attentive and open-minded to new ideas. So I researched and noticed everything going on with the NFT space, Blockchain technology, and cryptocurrency.
I was inspired to begin a collection, but I would produce the collection in a creative, unique way as a visual artist. I did not want to create characters and change the colors on them or like an eye as I’ve seen in many NFTs…
I understand all the aspects of creating a massive amount of them to start bids low. And the non-fungible minted value associated with them.
HOWEVER, for me as an artist, the actual value in art is in the singularity non-fungible visual aspects of the artwork.
So here I am today sharing this post with you documenting part of my process and journey creating the NFT series. It’s purely original, from the ink drawings to the digital paintings and eventually 3D artwork created of the masks.
