CryptOGs: The Pioneers of NFT Art - M87 Black Hole Deconstruction #9

“As one of the pioneers and figureheads of the Crypto Art movement, Kane’s work has brought this novel artistic media into the main. Nonetheless, it was his traditional training as a painter – negotiating supports, grounds, pigments, and glazes – that has informed his practice throughout. In his deconstructions, this layering is patently clear. As the vectors and architectures of the present work rotate and diverge, the implied hand of its maker is ever-present; a trace of the pencil or brush that lays down its medium. It is apt, therefore, that Kane’s creative process involves completely self-developed software and inputs to interpret, rend, and reanimate its grid of splines.”
