NFT Granny: “Dear Baeige – many thanks for your time. How did you first become interested in art, and how did you get started with it yourself?”
Baeige: I was first introduced to art in college after taking an art history class, but it was only around ten years after that that I thought about creating art myself. At that time, I was working in a restaurant and felt miserable because I didn’t like where I was. Luckily, I have a partner that is very supportive and helped me find myself in a creative way. I only started learning 3D as a way of dealing with anxiety. But it quickly became a way for me to make a living while doing something that was soothing me.
Could you tell us more about the story of your Project “Settlement”?
Baeige: Settlement is a peaceful moment in time. It is a place to go when you are stressed and need a breather.
Which of your artworks are you most proud of?
Baeige: It’s hard to choose one, but I think I would say Lavish just because of the way this piece brought so many people together.
Is there an artist you would like to work with? Like a collaboration?
Baeige: I am lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing artists that I can call friends. I think one of my favorites is Jason Ebeyer. I would love to see one of my rooms with one of his beautiful characters.
We are curious 🙂 Would you be willing to share any plans for upcoming projects?
Baeige: I’m pretty much taking my art day by day, and especially nowadays it’s been hard to be creative with everything going on in the world, slowly building Baeige hotel which is gonna be an interactive experience of my environments.
Who or what are your biggest influences or sources of inspiration?
Baeige: Travelling and discovering new parts of the world is my most significant source of inspiration.
How do you enjoy the NFT Art you have collected? Do you have a way to display it for example at home?
Baeige: We have some Samsung art TVs where we display some of our favorite NFTs. I also like Infinite Objects since they come in different sizes so that you can display your art in smaller places too.
What is the most disturbing thing when it comes to NFTs and cryptoart in your opinion?
Baeige: How easy it is for trolls and mean people to disrespect artists and their work because they are easily accessible online.
What does a typical day for you look like, and what do you like to do when you’re not busy with NFT Art?
Baeige: As an anxious person, when I am not creating or working at all, I love being outside, either alone or with my loved ones, to recharge my battery. I’m also a bit of a gamer, so from time to time, I enjoy gaming too.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Baeige: Just create for fun and pleasure. When it’s not fun anymore, it’s because you’re doing something wrong.
Is there something aside from art or NFTs you collect?
Baeige: I’m not a big collector. That’s what I love about NFTs. They don’t take up too much space in your home. As you can tell by my work, I love a minimalist environment, so you can imagine my place reflects a bit of my work!
