CryptoArt Sundays: Interview with Drew Medina

Artists and creatives have always been at the forefront of movements that transform society, such as architecture or photography. Now it’s time for crypto to take center stage with its own creative revolution. We sat down with Drew Medina of @CryptoArtSaturdays to discuss artistry through blockchain technology and what this means for artists in today’s world.

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for a cup of coffee and CryptoArt Sundays! Meet Drew Medina, a prominent AI artist and AAA game developer with over 24 years of experience.

Medina was born in New York City and went to Philadelphia to study film and animation before working as a full-time game developer. Without a doubt, his strange, complicated, and enigmatic designs immediately catch the viewer’s mind. You can see his creativity has no bounds, and he was born with the spark of genius!

Thus, let’s learn more about his adventure in the NFT industry so far in our interview below! I strongly advise you to visit Foundation to see his live, moving, and animated masterpieces.

What drew you to construct your own NFTs and how did you learn about the NFT space?

I was looking into the GPU scarcity scenario when I came across bitcoin and ETH mining. I happened to be looking for AI tools for creating holographic art at the same time. I think I came into how artists were utilizing AI for genuine art rather than the depth maps and other process-related applications I was searching for. I became enamored with the work and began following the artists, discovering that they were also NFT artists.

How frequently do you make something?

I started a new passion when I opened an AI notebook. For the last 30 years, I’ve attempted to develop something new every day; finding AI has amplified that, as has having a community to share it with.

How do you go about coming up with ideas?

As a “init” picture, I use my own art, images, and sketches, which grow into something unique that I explain using language. I also compose entirely using text, which is considerably more difficult to regulate but may yield unexpected effects. Both need a great deal of iteration and waste labor.

Do you have any CryptoArtists with whom you’d want to collaborate?

I’d want to work with musicians one day; the emotional possibilities fascinate me!
