Jean-Paul Opperman is a visual artist into crypto. In art, he uses a childish, spontaneous language in combination with digital expressionism. Color and form are very important, and so is the story of an artwork. The actual work is often based upon a lot of elements that come to some kind of “temporary” solution in the final result. Temporary because it always seems like this moment of peace between color and form is more like an agreement. To tell a bit about how an artwork comes to life, it’s like getting a trigger from the news, another painting, a story or a memory and from there on the journey starts and everything changes – the often-told sentence – you have to live through a painting – is really true in the case.
"In the summer of 2020 I became aware of this thing called NFTs. Actually, I had been reading about this before in 2018 but didn’t understand how I could create these contracts myself, so I forgot about it. In October 2020 I applied to Super Rare because the artwork on that site looked so marvelous compared to what I saw on Rarible and OpenSea. I got accepted and felt so proud of myself.
As an artist you always feel a bit left out, not being taken serious for what you are. So, from then on, I just felt like wow there is a place for digital art, were people and potential collectors believe in digital art. It turned out a lot of this “collectors” just see digital art as a way to flip and gain money but the underlying believe that digital art is the future is so great.
When it comes to myself, I don’t believe in this traditional big studio with huge paintings anymore, I believe when you create something it’s very great when it’s just on your computer or cloud. If you want a print, you can choice your own size and so on. And now with this blockchain you can actually identify a digital artwork as something unique, which is such a huge milestone in digital art".
A small ode to the 90s, the time I grew up. | I like to dedicate 2022 to this new series I call the DoodleBin, a bin (or pool) for my line drawings telling daily life stories blended with my dreamy surreal mind.
Insomnia - gif about sleepless nights in town or in my case often being highly creative at night so the nights can be short hehe | I like to dedicate 2022 to this new series I call the DoodleBin, a bin (or pool) for my line drawings telling daily life stories blended with my dreamy surreal mind.
