Welcome to another epic round of CryptoArt Sundays. Volovisions!
VOLOVISIONS aka Oliver Brusca is a visionary artist who bridges the realm of the visible and the invisible through his extraordinary talent for color, image and painting. His focus is traditional painting and digital art, and his artwork presents visual information from hallucinatory states, dreams, and out-of-body experiences.
You may be wondering who he is and more about his artwork.
How did you find out about the NFT space and what drew you to creating your own NFT?
Word about NFTs has spread throughout the online artist community I’m a part of. I didn’t pay much attention to it at first, but recently I took a deep dive into what’s possible with NFTs. The market that is the currency around.
Initially, I got to know how the NFT space works by posting several pieces on various platforms. provided by m.
How often do you create them?
My creative cycle comes in waves. When I feel very inspired and rejuvenated, I’m usually in an ecstatic state, creating art every day for weeks or months.
At some point, you can feel that wave changing and you need time to rest and recollect new ideas.
what is your creative process?
My creative process varies considerably depending on the medium, but most of my ideas begin with images of dreams, meditations, and various out-of-body experiences. I’ve had a pretty visual experience with things that I can vaguely recognize.
My art expression was a way of working with these very abstract and mystical visuals from a state of foresight. sometimes in the middle of the night. Eventually, I spend time on more complex graphite sketches.
From this more refined sketch, I refine further with my pen until the image renders the way I want it to. Sometimes I like to leave my work in black and white pen/ink, but these days I transfer these drawings to canvas and paint them. This is another way to take the image further.
Even when working digitally, I often start with a sketch, scan it, and upload it so that I have a place to start.
Are there any CryptoArtists you would like to collaborate with?
There are many traditional painters that I greatly admire and would love to work with (Izzy Ivy, Luke Schroeder, Vajra, Joseph Skala, Seth McMahon), just to name a few.
I’m still familiar with “CryptoArtists” and finding people to inspire me, but I have more history and connections to the world of traditional painters.
Some of them may also have NFTs available, but I wouldn’t call them just crypto artists.
What do you think the future of CryptoArt will look like?
Hard to say! The honest answer is I don’t know. A direction that inspires me is seeing crypto art enable deeper presentations of art, words/videos/music/images all combined into cohesive works.
What are you working on now?
Currently I have many works in progress as usual! I have some large canvas paintings finished and digitized and some new sketches in the nascent stage that will eventually move to canvas or digital.
I’m also exploring creative ways to combine my art and music into unique creations, which I can’t fully explain yet, but it’s a work in progress 🙂
