CryptoArt Sundays: Welcome! Today’s guest is Natalie Kato. Her mixed media art is amazing, and each piece is unique and beautiful.
Natalie lives in Kyiv in Ukraine. She works in abstract realism. She attended Milan Art Institute, and has exhibited her work at galleries in Italy, Spain, and the UK. Her art aims to help people find their true desires and hearts, inspire love and affection, and make them feel loved and special.
Let’s take a look at the interview and learn more about her experiences as an artist within the NFT space.
What was your journey to the NFT industry?
NFTs were introduced to me by an artist friend that I follow on Instagram. Digitalizing my paintings was a great way to promote my art. It was something I wanted to do so I tried it.
How frequently do you create
My day is filled with creativity as a full-time artist. This is my lifestyle. Art is my life. The mixed media technique is my bliss, as I don’t get bored or tired.
How creative are you?
Mixed media allows me to have fun and really enjoy my creative process. I don’t have to be unique and only work in one style. Today, I draw or take photos of my references. The next day, I make collages or imprimatura. Next, I use acrylics to paint. There are many different ways to do this! The final stage, regardless of the previous ones, is glazing and using oils to apply opaque brushstrokes. This allows me to create vivid, vibrant, and deep imagery.
Do you know any Crypto Artists that you’d love to work with?
It is appealing to think of collaborating with artists whose art style or subject matter I admire. To be honest, I am not sure how to execute that idea. Our backgrounds and materials vary, so we all come from different parts of the world. Digital painting is something I am considering at the moment. This would be something exciting and new for me.
How do you see Crypto Art’s future?
It’s obvious that NFTs are gaining popularity. NFTs have changed people’s lives in many ways. I know this because it has actually made my life better. Creators and collectors have another chance to be a part art history, leaving a lasting trace after a short life.
What are your current projects?
Current work includes the “Movement” series. It is about self-development and the progress of an individual within the context of everyday life. I want to illustrate the variety of forms, conditions and paces of progress as well as the complexity of this process.
Where collectors can find your work?
My paintings can be purchased on Foundation or OpenSea.
