Luluxxx is an NFT Artist currently living in Paris, West Sub. After graduating from engineering school, she started a company with friends, working as VFX supervisors – digital visual effects. For her, it was vital learning managing the relations between technical and artistic people. Then, she slowly started to get interested in the whole Crypto, Blockchain NFT Tech world. And on the first day of COVID lockdown in March 2020 in France, she finally jumped into the field. Luluxxx sees herself as very eclectic. And she considers this journey to explore and challenge her taste.

NFT Granny: “Dear Lulu, thank you for taking your precious time to answer my question. While browsing through your artwork, I found a link to Women supporting Women. What is it about?

luluxxx: Women supporting Women is an initiative from Kate Vass Galerie. Kate included me in her ephimera gallery. I am working with Kate and her gallery on some particular aspects of my work. For example, the CAD AF this year. She is a strong advocate for feminine representation. Before, I had no experience with the art world, and it is an excellent opportunity to be guided in a way with Kate. It is a bit out of the social media circus, which is very appreciable for me.

How did you first become interested in art, and how did you get started with it yourself?

My first touching point to art was not more than the usual tourist museum visits, as I do not have any artistic education. I went to an engineering school, in which I got passionate about Computer Generated Imagery. That’s how I got started to work in this field. I started a company with friends, working as VFX supervisors – digital visual effects. It was vital learning managing the relations between technical and artistic people. As I am coming from a Tech background, I had the chance to work alongside many very talented persons. Directors, Designers – you name it.

A journey of trust started. Slowly but steadily, I was able to handle part of the artistic process, which gave me the feeling that I am on the right track. I started doing my things and using neural networks tech in 2015. During that time, I used open-source software, as I am a bit of a programmer. But when I wanted to share my feedback with developers, I understood rapidly – they do not care. Releasing opensource is usually part of a publication. That was the date of birth for luluxxx – an anonymous artist journey.

I started to see crypto art with the creation of superrare and knoworigin. And I have never thought that I could be part of this scene. I slowly started to get interested in the whole Crypto, Blockchain NFT Tech world. And on the first day of COVID lockdown in March 2020 in France, I jumped into the field.

Can you tell us more about the story behind your project “I think you are beautiful”?

luluxxx: There is no particular story. I love them because the beauty is in the feeling that is transmitted, not just the physical beauty. It’s a series of videos all around the internet where people were told they are beautiful. And I tried to find loops that carry genuine emotions. I usually use transformative techniques to abstract them or to take them to another reality. People used to say that my work is “psychedelic”- love that.

Which of your artworks are you most proud of? 

luluxxx: I’m proud of all and none of them. I produced so much it’s impossible to say. But I think I pick a piece acquired by @colbornbell  of @MuseumofCrypto a few seconds after I minted on Rarible in 2020. It is now part of the “genesis collection” of the MoCa. Frankly, the title was visionary because it was not far from an accident.

Is there an artist you would like to work with? Like a collaboration?

luluxxx: I collaborate with many people, and I collect their work as well. I get to know them eventually and collaborate organically. It’s at the heart of what I do. This space is so diverse, and I always let all the doors open. It’s impossible to answer a “name only one” type of question.

How do you enjoy the NFT Art you have collected? Do you have a way to display it, for example, at home?

luluxxx: No, I don’t. I collect physical photography. I buy limited editions and put them on my wall. That’s all globally. It’s more the act of purchasing and supporting people that interests me. I buy a little bit for ROI sometimes, but it’s not an obsession. Furthermore, I have a collection of French comics from the 1970s and some originals drawings.

What is – in your opinion – in the current NFT Scene missing?

luluxxx: It is hard to say as it evolves so fast. I miss a tool to organise significant collections. As I minted a lot and collected enormously, some platforms are trying to solve that, but it doesn’t allow me to create “subcollections”. Or a function to organise folders automatically by the artist. 

The biggest issue is royalties across platforms. There are technical issues about to be solved, but it does not seem to a “priority” for platforms. As well it would be time for a decentralised social media for crypto art. Nowadays, it is Twitter centric which is very dangerous.

Who or what are your biggest influences or sources of inspiration? 

luluxxx: I’m very eclectic. And I consider this journey to explore and challenge my taste—these days I’m spending a lot of time in front of my computer. My tactic is to download and archive everything that catches my eye. I have been doing it for years and have a solid organisation. If I am blocked or in need of inspiration, I dive into it randomly.

Furthermore, I love B&W photography, especially vintage or 50’s/60’s and erotic photography like Helmut Newton, Jonvelle, Haraki, and dozens of others. In addition, I like abstract things from e.g. Rothko, Pollock or Rauschenberg or listening to electronic music while creating new art.

In Terms of crypto artists, I cannot make a list inspiration wise. But I can list my top artist as a collector: @MariaGa48947598, @robnessofficial @yelitzardgz @Jay_Delay @OoakosiM @BarbaraBezina @marespi, @neurocolor @Ann_ahoy and @OrfanoSolange

What does a typical day for you look like, and what do you like to do when you’re not busy with NFT Art?

luluxxx: My days are quite structured. I need my first cup of coffee before I can see anything. Afterwards, I work out on my elliptical bike and have a shower. Afterwards, my day in front of the computer starts. Indeed I am a very normal person. Do shopping, have friends and family and when my daughters live with me I have a lot of young people around me, which I really enjoy a lot.

I bought an electric bike, which I enjoy a lot while biking along the river in west Paris. I like to spend time in my beautiful garden, where I do sculptures for fun too. Furthermore, I like doing street photography or doing portraits. As well as reading, but just during holidays.  Fun fact: I have not watched TV since 1999. 

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

luluxxx: Many people in the scene are giving you general advice, but the most important ones for me are:

  1. Be kind to collectors 
  2. Never criticise another crypto artist in public – given by whom I consider as my mentor @robnessofficial 
  3. There is no advice to avoid mistakes. You have to do them to learn.

Minting and exposing yourself on Twitter is an emotional ride. I see a lot of people sad and depressed after a few weeks. I guess it’s part of the journey.

Is there something aside from art or NFTs you collect? 

luluxxx: I have collected everything since I was very young. I am a serial collector. As a kid: Stamps, Disney figurines, coins. As a Teenager:  vinyl and audiotapes, as well as Apple 2 program discs.

Other than that I started collecting photography as limited series editions lately. As well I have some originals from very famous comic artists. I would love to collect vintage cars, but I can’t yet – I do not want to put them in my garden 😉
