CryptoArt News: Women of CryptoArtNet

Recent discussions on CryptoArt Twitter point to the need to support a stronger presence of women in cryptoart. While the cryptoart scene seems more welcoming to women overall than many tech domains, women make up only 20% of CryptoArtNet listings.

Hopefully more discussion and action are ahead. For my part, highlighting the women who have listings at CryptoArtNet seemed like a good place to start. There is some ambiguity around gender in some cases so I may be adding or even subtracting from this list in the near future. If I get one wrong, let me know!

Let me also say that CryptoArtNet is very supportive of the presence of all genders and gender combinations. Binaries can be useful but ultimately limit human identity and artmaking in sometimes brutal fashion.

The cryptoart scene has generally been a very positive and welcoming space. Part of what’s great about it is its international makeup. I’ve been very glad that artists choosing to create listings on CryptoArtNet offer a strong representation of many different parts of the world.

Women of CryptoArtNet (Alphabetical with notes from Artists’ Listings)

image of sculptured woman's faceArtbymitrai

Indrani is a self-taught artist inspired by the shapes, colors and form of natural objects. She is especially moved by the engaging simplicity of illustrations created for children and how Vermeer’s treatment of light can bring out the ethereal beauty of a simple moment in time.

She was elected for juried exhibition, lightandspace, which was impactful in focusing her research efforts into a variety of new methods and techniques. She has entered a more experimental phase with digitized works and the use of digital tools paralleling her discovery of blockchain technology which she sees as an open door to a whole new world of possibilities.

Abstract image hiding woman's face by Anna Stoyanova-Spontaneart at CryptoArtNetAnna Stoyanova/Spontaneart

Traditional and digital painter. I am working in different styles and techniques, and I am mixing them digitally….

With the event of the internet and the new technological progress, I discovered a new way to express my creativity and started to paint digitally. At this moment I am creating daily digital art, very personalized, because, usually I love to create with custom brushes that were painted or designed in separated applications. Mostly I am remixing my photos of my traditional art in different variants and techniques and I am experimenting new ways to create. Some of my fans called my transformations of old art in new “Recycled art”.

CECHK is the pseudonym used by Gabriela Cecchin, a brazillian visual and crypto artist.

The themes of her works includes a neo-cyberpunk world, a glitched reality, womanhood, mental illnesses, substance abuse, and the self reflected ego on the internet.

Handdrawn girlish bedroom by Fullmetal Magdalene at CryptoArtNetFullmetal Magdalene

All my life I have loved creating visual works that I would describe as ‘Art Out Loud’. My artistic influences include Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Theodor Seuss, and Leonardo Da Vinci. I love celebrating the female form in my works. My pieces incorporate influences from my findings in psychology, theology, blockchain technology and pop culture; as well as my personal journeys through meditation and psychedelics.

‘Become content at heart, while also remaining discontent and disobedient; indeed become contented and agreeable (only) in the presence of that other Image of nature.’

portrait of woman's head and neck, lying back, in dark colors by Kitty Bast on CryptoArtNetKitty Bast

Kitty Bast creates characters that reappear and reside in a place where things are not as they should be. They each have a name and are often found in scenes of ambiguity for the viewer to unravel. Each piece of work is like a window with a view into the characters world.

dark landscape of tree by a lake by Luisa Espeineira on CryptoArtNetLuisa Espiñeira

I am a photographer and digital artist based in Galicia, Spain. I’m in love with spaces without people or in which people are only part of the landscape. I like the long exposure, I can spend hours trying to get the perfect picture. Then the editing part will begin, until I get what I am looking for, what I felt when I decided to photograph that space. I use Photoshop, After effects and Premiere to editing a to animate my images.

abstract lime green by Sparrow on CryptoArtNetSparrow

Sparrow Read is a software engineer, traditional artist (encaustic wax medium) and digital artist. Finding a synergy between technology and art, Sparrow explores the latent space of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) deep learning algorithms and other digital manipulation techniques to create artworks that are a collaboration between human and machine. Most recently she has been creating “programmable art”, where owners of individual elements of an artwork can control the rendering of a master image to create an artwork that changes over time based on their selections. Her current focus: allowing control of some elements of the master artwork to be controlled by external data, such as weather, Tweet sentiments and market prices.
