The 10th Cosmic Convos is open! Everyone a happy new year. The past year was a crazy one for NFTs. We witnessed jpegs become big brands, Facebook becoming Meta, and major brands like Nike and Adidas entering. NFTs had a great year last year, and this year promises to be even better.
Although I’ve been interested in crypto for a while, I only bought my first NFT 6 months ago. It is amazing to see what has happened since then. It seems like the space is growing exponentially, and it is difficult to predict where we will be in one year. It’s amazing what I love about it. Unexpected things happen all the times. If I’m being honest with myself, 2022 is a big goal of mine! Although I cannot say much right now, I will be sharing more information in the coming weeks.
I wanted to kick off the new year with a banger. The artist this week creates dreamlike figures. His main goal is to change the perception of reality, and who we are as human beings. Artists who push the boundaries and challenge our perceptions of what is acceptable are my favorite. This week I was blessed with the opportunity to meet Dreamz.
Ken: Tell me more about your artist’s name, Dreamz. It’s amazing how you came up with it.
Dreamz: I used to be an artist before I became an artist. I used to produce music and would often try to create dream-like music. I also used to make future bass music and lo fi music. Realizing how much competition there was in the music business, I decided to stop making music and start creating art. It was obvious that art would be more lucrative for me. When I was first starting out, I made album covers and logo designs. Slowly, I realized that art and music go hand in hand.
Ken: Ken, besides being an artist, who are your personal characteristics? Please tell us about yourself.
Dreamz: I am futuristic and forward-thinking. This is how you describe me. I wish to change the way people see reality. Personally, I believe that today’s society is very close-minded.
Ken: When did you first start creating art? How has it evolved over the years?
Dreamz: My main motivation for starting to make art was because of a friend who was interested in making some art. At the time, I was learning after effects and was just getting started with it. So, I decided to try and make something cool for him. Surprisingly, he really liked what I made! My experience as an artist is very limited. I’ve only been doing 3D art for a little over a year. Surprisingly, 3D art has been a major part of my life for quite some time. It fascinated me, it seemed like something I could use to express my emotions on a deeper level. I quickly learned as much as I could. I reached out to other artists in my area asking for their help. They mentored me. GHOST GIRL was a mentor to me in a personal way. She was the reason I had over $200 in Sushi at one time.
Ken: It seems that you are inspired by many sources. Ken: What are some of your sources of inspiration?
Dreamz: I am inspired by many people in the NFT space, including Ghost Girl, Lane, Tech Keys and Jonathan Puac. Klaw Machine and Bloo woods are also some of my main sources. These artists are the ones that have inspired me to create what you see today.
Ken: How much time do you spend on your art each day? And how does it work?
Dreamz: I usually only spend between 2-5 hours a day on art. The rest of my time, I focus on social media and growing it. As an artist, you must be a master at social media marketing. It’s one of the most important factors in today’s age.
Ken: Is there a vibe you want to project with your art?
Dreamz: I strive to create dream-like characters that are real but not impossible to imagine. My main goal as an artist is to change the perception of reality and who we are as human beings.
Ken: Ken, how did you get started with NTFs?
Dreamz: My art began after I made it for yezzi, a talented and underground future bass player. He suggested that my art could possibly be NFTed. Since then, I have been immersing myself in this space and learning every day.
Ken: What are your goals in the NFT space and what do you hope to accomplish?
Dreamz: My goal as an artist is for me to be able create realistic human characters and be able implement them into game engines that millions of people can use. I want people to question my art and gain a better understanding of each piece. I want to make sex modern and more art than sex. A goal of mine in this space would be to sell out 100+ NFTs in one go. I currently have 14 NFTs sold consecutively!
Ken: Who are your favorite artists in the NFT and general world?
Dreamz: Ghost Girl, Lane, Tech Keys and Jonathan Puac. Klaw Machine and Bloo Woods.
Ken: Your art seems to show that you are very interested in future possibilities. What do you see the future of the world looking like in 10 years? Which place do you believe NFTs will be in the world?
Dreamz: I believe the world will be a lot more digitalized. There will be more screens with more eye-catching ads, and more 3D art. The world is also slowly becoming the next cyberpunk 2027 videogame in a way that I believe. My view is that the world will likely remain a mixture of utopia and dystopia.
Ken: Last, where can people find out more about you or your art?
Dreamz: They may check out Tezos Foundation.
