Dilated Pixels

The aesthetic for ‘Dilated Pixels’ comes from my love for 8-bit video games and abstract-art. I believe in the power of randomness and sometimes art that I create need not try to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead I use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

The word abstract means to separate something from something else, and when you bring complexity to something already abstract, your pupils are bound to get dilated in trying to decipher the creation.

The Story

I’m sure I speak for most if not all of us — the term NFT was pretty new at the start of 2021 but since then it’s quickly become a term that everyone including my 15 year old niece is familiar with.

I’ve spent the past 90 days in learning about not just how to create and sell NFTs but also the blockchain, web3, crypto-currency, meta-verse and so on. Whilst my learning has only just begun, I couldn’t wait to get my hands dirty — artistically speaking, of course. And so, ‘Dilated Pixels’ was an idea that I wanted to bring to life first.

There you have it! I guess it’s safe to say I finally lost my NFT virginity.

Phew! In case you’re vibing with the art, check out the whole collection.
