ArtistJohn Interview

“PixelKitty #32 – Stardiddle” by ArtistJohn

Who are you?

Hello hello I am John from Massachusetts and I love the creative digital space.

When did you start making art?

Well when I was very young I used to really love coming up with my own games inside my head. All the characters, the items, the prices of the items, the maps, the gameplay. I really loved all the little things and the hardcore planning that goes into the best games and maps. A few years ago I started taking art more seriously making clothes and custom artworks for people. Starting this year I began my NFT journey and I’m very loyal to Tezos and CleanNFTs.

What would you call your style?

I have a very childish, friendly, happy, motivative style in most of my pieces. I also enjoy making creepy, scary, surreal, and philosophical pieces. Whatever I enjoy and I have fun making is my style.

What inspires your art?

I like to think during the creative process. So thinking. I’d also say my long history with the steam game Garry’s Mod has influenced my creativity as well.

“Where Do I Fit In?” by ArtistJohn

Why did you choose hic et nunc?

I was looking for a low fee platform that housed other underground artists making interesting art. I didn’t want my NFTs or the NFT environment I was in to feel corporate. HEN feels like an old-school, weird underground site you would stumble across at 3am. Filled with incredible art I’m happy to have been with the site since it’s first or second month.

Why do you use the cat face?

I call them C@S and they make me happy to look at. A digital friend with a smile (usually).

What do you do for fun?

I love collecting things like digital art, clothes, plushes, toys, ect. I love video games and recently enjoyed beating Resident Evil 4 VR. I am also working with my developer friend making gamemodes and addons for the game S&box. I always find new things to do and enjoy.

What adds value to your art?

The deeper message behind the simple creations and the emotion and energy put into the artwork as well as everything I do.

Do you have any creations that mean the most to you?

Personally I love some of my Machine Learning creations the most haha even though they aren’t collected much. I love the look of my pixel kitties series and want to make more 3d sculptures.

Is there anyone you want to shoutout?

Literally every person I have met, interacted with, and collaborated with. There are so many to name I’m just gonna say you know who you are and I love you.

Anything else?

I’m very happy to have found this community and can’t way to see how the future of OBJKTs and Tezos nfts progress.
