ONE37pm's 1/1 Artist Spotlight is a series that focuses on giving love to 1 of 1 NFT Artists. Whether they're from the traditional art world or just got started in art through web3, we want to highlight and help you get to know those who are up and coming.
A 1/1 NFT is a unique, one-of-a-kind digital collectible where no other exists other than the piece itself. We hope to introduce you to talented and incredible people in the NFT space and the reasons they love doing what they do.
Thiago Souza (Yot) is an 18-year-old Brazilian artist who focuses on touching people with his pieces, living off his own art and ideas, he started at 14 years old to study design and work with commissions.
At 17, he was introduced to and fell in love with cryptoart. His pieces are inspired by moments in his life, ideas of things in the world, and things from his perspective. He is an experimental artist and his works can differ greatly from each piece, some taking over 2 months to make.
ONE37pm: How has your artist journey changed since joining NFTs? How did you start?
Yot: Joining NFTs was one of the best things that happened in my entire life. I was just a 17-year-old designer who worked with commissions and was paid $50 a month, I had no dreams and no goals, one day I decided to make a poster about a movie I really like called ''Ex_Machina'' and I posted it on twitter and a Brazilian artist Etiene Crauss called me on dm showing me what the NFT world is like and how you can sell your own works, not work for others like commissions, when I watched everyone doing their own art I fell in love with all that, it was something beautiful to my eyes.
