ONE37pm’s 1/1 Artist Spotlight is a series that focuses on giving love to 1 of 1 NFT Artists. Whether they’re from the traditional art world or just got started in art through web3, we want to highlight and help you get to know those who are up and coming.
A 1/1 NFT is a unique, one-of-a-kind digital collectible where no other exists other than the piece itself. Each 1/1 collection has a limited amount of editions available, with the number dictated by the artist. We hope to introduce you to talented and incredible people in the NFT space and the reasons they love doing what they do.
Yosnier Miranda is a Florida based artist known for his symbolic pieces that touch on love, loss, pain, and hope. His art is usually portrayed in the style of tarot cards with a pastel color scheme.
He started doing art in high school when he decided to enroll in an AP art class on a whim. Since then, he’s been able to touch audiences globally through his experiences of suffering and growth. While his pieces are inspired by personal experiences, he captures them in a way that is universally understood.
In “…but what if i’m afraid to feel again?,” Yosnier portrays how he’s both holding on to a broken heart and trying to mend it together. His commonly used motifs include butterflies, swords, ribbons, hearts, clouds, and hands.
“It shows how I tend to let love lead the way instead of thinking rationally,” he said. “And even though there are swords that represent pain, the butterflies and ribbons show that there is still hope and there’s still love, and that’s a beautiful thing.”
ONE37pm: How would you describe your art style?
Yosnier: Hmm… I would describe my art style as heavenly. From the pastels used to the common motifs used. I’ve heard that my work strongly resembles stained glass and tarot cards and I definitely have to agree with both of those comparisons. I think my work encapsulates vulnerability even without looking at the themes presented. From the many pinks and blues used that I feel represent me best. It’s hard to describe sometimes but I definitely see my art style as an extension of myself; how I see the world.
ONE37pm: What is your favorite piece?
Yosnier: I have a couple pieces that I hold dear to my heart honestly! If I’m able to select my top 3 I would definitely say “i wish i could erase the memories we made together,” “i won’t let love destroy me again” and my latest piece, “coalescence.” Those pieces specifically highlight specific moments in my life and are pieces that made me cry the most whilst creating.
ONE37pm: When did you start doing NFTs?
Yosnier: I think my artist journey has stayed the same since I started minting NFTs close to [what I consider to be] my start as an artist. Initially I had began creating work during my senior year of high school but I stopped right after I graduated, only to start creating work again in late 2020. I started posting art on twitter around late august and minted my first NFT on SuperRare (my first platform) in early October.
ONE37pm: Do you prefer physical or digital art?
Yosnier: I’ve yet to make anything physical so digital but I plan on creating physical work as soon as I figure out where I would wanna go with it.
ONE37pm: What do you hope to accomplish in the next year?
Honestly, I’m still figuring this out honestly but I want to do something big… I just need to see where the winds of change continue to take me. I know that artistically I want to become an even better artist and I want to continue to [hopefully] inspire others to delve deeper within themselves and create directly from their hearts.
ONE37pm: When do you feel most inspired to create?
I think I’m most inspired to create when I feel like I have a proper understanding of whatever I’m feeling at that specific moment. It’s hard for me to create under the state of confusion and while I’m still figuring out where to go emotionally.
