An Interview with Artist Nicolas Sassoon – BOOOOOOOM! – CREATE * INSPIRE * COMMUNITY * ART * DESIGN * MUSIC * FILM * PHOTO * PROJECTS

I not too long ago commenced accumulating some art on Objkt and I’m experiencing how different it is than the other realms of the NFT place. I love seeing artists releasing reasonably priced do the job so that other artists can in fact personal it—giving everybody a prospect to encounter getting a collector. Can you communicate about your experience with art on Tezos precisely?

I started out minting my perform on Ethereum in February 2021, then I minted my initially perform on Tezos in April of 2021. Ethereum was my entry stage to net3 and it is a excellent blockchain but it’s also extremely highly-priced: it is costly to mint a function, and it’s also pricey to acquire, so apart from the technological and expertise barrier, there is also a money barrier. Tezos is exciting simply because of its lower barrier of entry financially, which can make it extra accessible for several artists who really do not have a ton of money methods. You can promote editions and is effective at a incredibly small price tag, it is far more available to collect, and a whole lot of artists who are advertising their operate on Tezos also acquire operates from other artists. So rather of just being an artist selling your operate, you’re an artist and a collector, which results in all kinds of interesting dynamics.

For case in point, when I uncover new artists on Tezos, I glance at the performs they’ve collected. From there I find new artists, and so on. It’s a unique way to join with other creatives, and to see how they engage with the ecosystem. All people tends to use twitter to endorse their perform and so this also gives an possibility to chat with an artist, to build relationships, collaborations, etc. Ethereum tends to come to feel centered on artists from North The us and Europe, but on Tezos you have significant communities of artists from South The usa, Asia, Africa. You experience a great deal far more variety. The high-quality of the art, the fiscal accessibility and the general ethos makes it a really remarkable ecosystem. I found Tezos many thanks to a excellent buddy and wonderful artist termed P1xelfool, who is dependent in Brazil. P1xel spent an whole working day onboarding me, demonstrating me will work from distinct artists, sending me twitter profiles to comply with. We started off gathering just about every other’s works, and we have been talking ever since about how that act of amassing among artists is just one of the most enjoyable items we have encountered in our occupations so considerably.
