WELCOME

Creativity at the intersection of fine art and blockchain technology, aka Decentralized Art.

CRYPTO ART

Most crypto art centers around the two largest cryptocurrency platforms by market capitalization, Bitcoin and Ethereum. My crypto art if focused on decentralized oracle pioneer, Chainlink, their CEO Sergey Nazarov, and their token, LINK.

POLITICAL ART

My political art warns against the threats of fascism in the United States of America. Specifically, my art references Naziism as an analogy to show how Trump’s rhetoric and behavior seem to look, feel, and sound like Hitler. 

TRASH ART

The term “trash art” started out as an insult towards a group of artists that challenged the art establishment with their newfound understanding of tech, copyright, and provenance. It has since become a badge of honor. 

SURREAL ART

I use the surrealist technique to unlock ideas and images from the unconscious mind, depict dream worlds, and explore hidden psychological tensions. I’m particularly fascinated by René Magritte and Salvador Dalí’s visual aesthetic.

This isn’t a “remix”, this is appropriation art- and not well-executed appropriation art, at that. – @LocalMothman

ANONYMOUS

You should remove the #trashart tag from your bio and just put #trash since that’s clearly all you are lol. – @HeyZeusArt

The appropriate response was to acknowledge and learn from them. I don’t like seeing anyone sink and so I wish you well if you do learn from this at some point. – @GenuineHumanArt

It’s probably legal to “parody” someone else’s art like this. To be honest, I don’t care at all about the legality question. But it’s really a dick move. What are you trying to accomplish, other than pissing off other artists? – @thefaketomato
