Bushra Khan, the founder of CryptoArt Sundays, discusses how she found Bitcoin and was able to use it to purchase her first piece of art. With the rise in popularity for crypto-artists around the world, there is a new market opening up with each passing day.
Everyone, welcome to CryptoArt Sundays! Today, I’d like to introduce you to Bushra Khan, an exceptional artist who uses painting to explore the landscapes of her mind.
Bushra’s dreamy and beautiful paintings transport you to a world of colors, ideas, patterns, and pure expression. Bushra has been an artist for a long time, but a friend encouraged her to join the NFT space. So let’s have a look at how her NFT career began, her thoughts on CryptoArt, and what she’s working on now!
What drew you to construct your own NFTs and how did you learn about the NFT space?
I learned about the NFT space via my Instagram buddy Waheed, popularly known as All Smilesss. I wanted to make my own NFTs because I enjoyed how people interacted with art. It reminded me of art class, when I’d explain why I made certain creative choices. I felt that the NFT area allowed me to reconnect with people I had lost touch with throughout Covid. It was also a way to make acquaintances outside of the art scene; I met some of my closest friends via NFTs.
How frequently do you make something?
Every day, I make art. The way I talk, dress, think, and live is an art form in and of itself. Bushra Khan is a masterpiece. I attempt to make at least one or two works of art every month. Everything moves so quickly in the NFT world that I often feel myself hurrying, but I remind myself that great art takes time – and my work will be nothing short of wonderful.
How do you go about coming up with ideas?
Each item has its unique method of creation. Some begin with a poem that helps me envision my current mental state. I can also envision an emotion I’ve been thinking about and then attempt to put it into words. One thing is certain: before I place a piece on a canvas, I always see how I want it to appear in my thoughts.
As an artist, it is my goal to properly capture the picture that I have in my head. I’ll spend the rest of my life attempting to describe the world that lives inside of me.
Do you have any CryptoArtists with whom you’d want to collaborate?
Milan, also known as Mediolanum666, is someone I’d want to work with. I adore his sense of style. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I really like the depth of thought he puts into his work. I can see he pays close attention to both the intricacies that our eyes can see and the subtleties that are beyond the canvas.
I’d want to collaborate with Waheed as well. We’ve both evolved so much as people and artists, and I genuinely feel that if we combined our imaginations, we could alter the art world.
What do you believe CryptoArt’s future will be like?
I believe the possibilities are limitless, but “CryptoArt” is not a genuine thing to me. We’re all producing art; we just happen to be doing it on a crypto platform. On a lesser scale, I believe that this new artistic possibility will inspire a new generation of artists who are more hands-on.
Artists have complete control over who may enjoy their work on a large scale, as well as how to earn from it without the need of a middleman. We are the new makers, in charge of our own creations and with the whole globe as our audience.
What are you working on right now?
I’m putting together a new collection! I’d want to return to producing tangible art. This collection will be made up of canvas paintings that my collectors will be able to claim in addition to the NFT. I’ll also include a message describing the painting’s purpose and provenance with each item.
I mentioned my method before, and the last step is to prepare my audience. Only I can tell my art narrative properly, and only my collectors will know the complete truth with these paintings. This collection will include hundreds of pieces, and I will continue to work on it for the rest of my life.
What are the locations where collectors may locate your work?
All of my social media profiles have a link in the bio! It includes a link to all of my NFTs on Foundation, as well as a link to my prints. If anybody wants to view my work before the NFTs, I also have my Instagram account there.
