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.
Eleven is an Afro-American and Mexican graphic designer and artist living in Germany. Before NFTs, She started her career as an esports designer. Her creative journey originally started 6 years ago as a hobby and has now turned into a passion.
She is known for her vibrant, colorful and abstract art style which usually includes gradients. The focal point of her brand are colors, and how they impact emotions and human behavior. Eleven takes inspiration mainly from music, movies and Swiss design.
You can view more of her work on Foundation.
ONE37pm: How has your artist journey changed since joining NFTs? How did you start?
Eleven: Ever since joining the NFT space, I’m able to not only grow as an artist creatively, but also make a living with my craft. I remember joining the NFT space September 2020 and selling my first artwork on Makersplace after starting to create digital art in 2019.
ONE37pm: Do you prefer physical or digital art?
Eleven: From a consumer perspective I have no preference, I enjoy all forms of art, whether that be physical or digital. But from a creator perspective I feel more comfortable with creating digital art.
ONE37pm: How would you describe your art style?
Eleven: My art style is very colorful, vibrant and abstract. Main focus of my work are colors / gradients and how they impact human behaviour.
ONE37pm: What is your favorite piece?
Eleven: My favorite piece of all time is “Welcome to my Personal Chaos.” As the name suggests, it depicts an internal chaos filled with intrusive thoughts.
ONE37pm: What do you hope to accomplish in the next year?
Eleven: I don’t have any goals that I MUST achieve but I would like to have my own art exhibition and art book!
Her art book is currently in progress. The core idea of the project is to establish a new brand identity that represents the importance of colors in Eleven’s work. You can view the project here.
