CashewJUAN

Tell us something about you.

I am a volatile mix of architect and artist, 28 years of age. Also part of the generation of kids with limited internet connection, dial phones and a lot of outside playing. Also an adult in a tech world growing so fast I can’t even fully comprehend it.

My work always starts physically, with paintbrushes, painting knives and canvases, after that comes the digital twists, where I take the artwork where It can never go in the physical world. Everything I post was once painted on a canvas.

Your real name

Ionuț Cășuneanu

Where are you from?

Bucharest, Romania

When did you start making art?

First start was in Art Highschool, but the real start was almost 2 years ago when I decided to stop conventional painting and really started to express myself. Self-expression is overrated but beneficial for self-harmony. In my opinion, it’s the perfect shield in the new era world. 

What motivates you?

I can’t say exactly, it's very hard to find motivation in these “everything is a distraction” times. Just taking it step by step, learning, making mistakes and going forward as much as I can. Unlike blockchain which is unstoppable, I am human and have limitations. But the great thing about limitations is that when embracing them, you can create this thing called “art”.

What is your favorite piece you created? Why? Tell us something about it.

*CONTRACURENT* Why? Because it’s awesome. And because it was the first painting that surprised me when creating it. The physical painting technique I use is highly unstable and results can sometimes dramatically differ (unlike the digital processing where everything can be 100% controlled).  After that, the *Digital dreamcatchers* collection (posted on my airNFT’s profile) was born.


Which software do you use?

First and foremost, I use real acrylic paints laced with all sorts of mediums. After I take multiple photographs, the digitalization is made using mostly Adobe Photoshop and GlitchLab. 

Personal achievements.

Selling my first artwork in real-life, selling my first NFT on airNFT’s. Being both an analog and digital creator, they are both huge milestones in my life and artistic path.

Skiwolker


Tell us something about you.

I am Daniele Di Donato also known as Skiwolker. I am a 3D artist from Italy. I work in a video production company and in my spare time I am an artist. 

Where are you from?

I am from Italy.

When did you start making art?

It all started back in 2017. I had a lot of interest in 3D art and I really liked the artworks that many artists were publishing on Instagram. So I started to make artwork every day. At first, I did not have knowledge of software and of composition, I learned all those things by experience. I also had different artistic styles during these years because I wanted to discover new techniques and have fun.

What motivates you?

I simply love 3D graphics. It allows me to create everything that I have in mind. I love to create surreal environments, something that is between realism and imagination. All the artworks that I have made are pieces of me, they store all my feelings and ideas. Sometimes I am inspired by other artists’ artworks, where I can find new ideas and the drive to do better.

What is your favorite piece you created? Why? Tell us something about it.

It is hard to choose only one, but I think “Shelter” will be a good answer. I love the general mood of this piece, the lighting and the fact that it is one of my last artworks with a ghost as a subject.

I was inspired by “Midsommar”, one of my favorite movies. If you have watched it, you can recognize the building where the ghost is staring (even if it is a bit different) and what it means. You can also understand why I have called this artwork “Shelter


Which software do you use?

I usually use C4D and Octane Render. Sometimes I use Blender too.

Personal achievements

I have made various album covers and music videos for different artists and sold a few NFTs on AirNFTs and other platforms.

Skywent

Tell us something about you.

Hi, my name is Bogdan Skitenko, but I prefer to use the pseudonym Skywent. I'm a 2D&3D Illustrator as well as a motion designer from Ukraine. I like to experiment with digital art, and I'm searching for my unique visual style. My main goal is that when people see my work, they experience an emotional response, and they say "Damn, this is really cool! Now I want to do something cool!"

Where are you from?

I am from Ukraine

When did you start making art?

I started to create art when I was 14 years old. Then I got acquainted with the game Garry's mod, in short, it's a sandbox in which you can do whatever you want. The game has a lot of content that allows you to create in addition to the fun scenes of characters and objects. That was the first time I made my own digital art. And that was the first step in the beginning of my interesting creative path.

What motivates you?

Creating a digital art object that can trigger an emotional response. To create something that can interact with the viewer, even without their participation. To put a piece of myself into my art and be happy when my art triggers an emotion. I create for the sake of emotions.

What is your favorite piece you created? Why? Tell us something about it.

I have a few favorite pieces. One is "F#CK THE MONEY" and the other is a collection of AIRT bills. The work "F#CK THE MONEY" has become one of my favorites because it is my personal protest and my vision of one of the pressing issues of many people, including myself. The way I see it, when it comes to their vocation, people wouldn't care how much money they would get for this or that. People would choose to do what they really like rather than what society demands. As ironic as it may be, my second favorite piece is the AIRT banknote collection. In this collection, I was able to combine all my skills and create something quite appealing, and most importantly, to create an object that interacts with the viewer even without their involvement. The AIRT banknote collection plays by the rules of the AirNFTs site, namely, it is like a visual embodiment of AIRT tokens. The price of the bills is directly related to the number of tokens the buyer will receive. And that's what I call interaction with the viewer.


Which software do you use?

I mostly use Blender + Adobe Photoshop, and sometimes Adobe Premiere Pro to create my work.

Personal achievements

As a personal achievement, I can only emphasize the fact that if I had the opportunity to go back in time to fix something, I would not fix anything at all.
