In this episode, we sit down with VESA, a renowned mixed media artist who has been in the crypto and NFT space since 2017. We discuss how the NFT and crypto space has changed since he joined, and what he is most excited about regarding where art is headed generally within the wider metaverse.
Vesa is particularly renowned for creating engaging mixed media art works that involve body painting and abstract art. He also produces works that integrate with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) and continues to push the boundaries of what art can be.
Vesa recently helped create the first NFT of a vehicle in the UAE - specifically of a Tesla owned by Dr Marwan Alzarouni, who heads the Dubai Blockchain Center. Vesa is now creating an innovative integration between vehicles in the real world and gaming, and will also be merging DeFi concepts into the NFTs he will be producing, which we discuss on this exciting episode.
