🎨 Artist of the week

artist nft

Ovidiu Bojor is an artist, designer and future shaper through what he does every day. He is active in the international art scene, exhibiting his artworks in galleries and art institutions in Tokyo, Barcelona, Brussels, Toronto, Madrid, and Toulouse. His background is in traditional art, where he has always brought innovative elements.

His passion for technology and evolution guided him to explore the digital medium as a creative medium, which brought him several achievements, ending up working with some of the biggest projects in the digital area such as AKCB, RTFKT or Futures Factory where he is currently part of the core team as designer and creative director.

Like Tammy, Ovidiu also made a splash on the NFT Bucharest Warm-Up stage where he delivered, according to general feedback, one of the most authentic and emotional moments. We're sure we'll be hearing from him again and again. Maybe, if you keep close, you'll get a chance to (re)see him too. Who knows, you might find flights from Barcelona to Cluj.

Until then, you can find him on Instagram or Twitter. Or here if you want more details. Or search on Twitch, where lately he's been going into live sessions by the hour!

We also made a video where we told more. 🙂
