The @SnkrsWax collaboration features two common NFTs: one greyscale piece of art and a gradient “utility swatch.” Blend them to form a full color version. Blend all three to redeem a limited edition glimmering black version.
Please introduce yourself to our readers:
Hi everyone, the name is Benny and I am the creator of WaxSnkrs. A sneaker collection on the wax Blockchain. IRL I am a team manager for a digital agency and I am from Ghana in Africa.
What was the inspiration for this piece?
I always try to understand the project I am collaborating with but this is cryptoswatches. I love to play with alot of colors so I really wanted to go crazy with this but I had to switch it up and do things different. Introduce an art form that was revolutionary in an era and which I have a strong attachment to. This was it, the “childlike” artistry of Keith Haring.
How long have you been creating in the digital realm?
Well, been creating for over 6 years now. Working on brands digital assets with my IRL agency.
Can you tell us about your workflow?
So basically I am an Adobe person, using a number of their softwares but Photoshop, illustrator and premier Pro are what I use mostly.
Who are your artistic influences?
I have a number of them but in recent times I am heavily influenced by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
What got you interested in NFTs/Crypto Art/Digital Collectibles?
Basically I am a futuristic person, so got to know about Bitcoin first, and recently I had an AHA moment that got me asking how can art be used in with Blockchain. That led me to NFT.
