    No Lazy Masterpieces.

    A masterpiece is a work of art of “outstanding creativity, skill, profundity, or workmanship”. Not all creators aspire to make masterpieces, but I do — I believe that life is to be lived constructively, and that means committing to excellence. How high can excellence go and to to what lengths can one go to achieve […]

    A New Chapter…

    I made this series as a culmination of everything I had learnt, in terms of technique, since joining the crypto art community. One year ago, almost to the day, I attended CoinFest in Manchester, as a curious outsider. Since then and over the last 12 months, I’ve been engaged in making artwork on a full-time […]

    The events in the world are part of a grand dream we create for ourselves. Deep down, we all know the game we play: life is a series of experiments, designed to give us the best chance of personal evolution. In this way, each one of us contributes to the evolution of the whole. The […]

    BANANAS Part II: Evolution

    Victimhood – to the play the victim. The flip side of the victimhood impulse is vengeance – to lash out in retribution. Both impulses are well engrained in Humanity. From organized religion, to secular culture, victimhood and vengeance have been woven into Human societal organisation, behaviour and art. These impulses manifest in situations as diverse […]

    BANANAS Part I: Cultural Singularity

    ‘The Singularity’ is a point in which technological progress becomes entropic and irreversible. I personally do not believe in this hypothesis because entropy is a computer model; it doesn’t take into account how progress in nature is an ebb and flow, of tension building and tension releasing. A full, Galactic, anthropological review, would uncover civilisations […]
