Why would I buy it when I can right click and save as? 

XCOPY

 

Among the first artists to embark on SuperRare and set sail into the crypto art seas, XCOPY has maintained his bold, unmistakable style throughout his whole production, using the immediacy of glitch to critique contemporary issues and attitudes. "Right-click and Save As guy" makes no exception: thanks to the work's witty title, the roughly traced subject is seen as an item to be collected, the figure of a generic "guy" one will probably download and make nothing of in the future."Why would I buy it when I can right click and save as?" reads the artwork's caption, clarifying how the work reflects on the very nature of crypto art.

Representation of existential anxiety through 3D primitives

Thato Tatai

Almost a visual pun, immediate, clean. Minimal, possibly referencing first experiments in 3D animation.

What is certainly distinctive about Thato's work is the expressiveness of its geometric balance. Although minimal and mostly monochromatic, the artist's compositions have a profoundly dramatic quality, capable of conveying emotions and sparking reflection on the most varied subjects. From the simplest of wildflowers to the most dubious of theories, Thato translates reality in his own visual terms through primitive shapes and carefully designed patterns, always entrusting narration to the balance of forms and shades.
