Cryptocurrency and art have a lot in common. They’re both uniquely rare, with limited circulation. And they’ve been vilified for years—just ask Pablo Picasso or Andy Warhol about how the world has treated them. But the two are finally coming together to create something new: CryptoArt Sundays, curated by Jasmine Mansbridge of @Crypto_Art on Instagram.,
CryptoArt Sundays is a weekly podcast that interviews artists, collectors, and creators of crypto art. In this week’s episode, Jasmine Mansbridge talks about her Funko NFTs.
Hello, NFT art aficionados! Hello and welcome to another round of CryptoArt Sundays. This week, I’d like to introduce you to Jasmine Mansbridge and her incredible artwork. Jasmine works in a variety of genres, including sculpture, installations, paintings, and non-traditional textiles (NFTs).
She characterizes her art as thought-provoking, allowing viewers to apply their own personal stories as they examine Mansbridge’s imagined world’s geometry and gateways. Let’s take a closer look at this brilliant artist and how she got into NFTs!
What drew you to construct your own NFTs and how did you learn about the NFT space?
I created a computer animation for an upcoming show in March 2021, and a buddy in London suggested I make NFTs, and it all started from there.
How frequently do you make something?
I’m a full-time artist, so it’s pretty much every day for me.
How do you go about coming up with ideas?
I haven’t drifted too far from my origins; I continue to hand-draw and paint my pieces before animating them to bring them to life. As I am mixing paint and making changes the old fashioned manner, this might be a time consuming procedure compared to other artists who create solely digital works.
However, I believe it distinguishes my work from that of other artists in the field. Before I ever heard about NFTs, I was creating digital art. My first works using augmented reality were created in 2017, so I’ve always been interested in how technology may be used with physical art.
Do you have any CryptoArtists with whom you’d want to collaborate?
Yes. The first things that spring to mind are Harry Pack, Ogi Worlds, and Heli flicks.
What do you believe CryptoArt’s future will be like?
I believe that more firms and enterprises will enter this arena, as well as more commercial ventures. I believe that good art, particularly work from earlier periods, will continue to appreciate in value.
What are you working on right now?
I’m still pushing the themes in my painted NFTs, and I’m working on other works that will use my physical sculptures. I’m excited to share this since I believe it will elevate my work to the next level!
What are the locations where collectors may locate your work?
Rarible, KnownOrigin, and Metaartclub are some of the places where you may find me.
