For the past few weeks, I have been driving a campaign to offer support to fellow NFT creators and I must say, I have had the opportunity to come across amazing artwork. It is a real adventure in itself…(Read more about it at the bottom of this page.)

What I see
I once heard a story about a battle between two wolves inside us. The story depicts these two wolves as our inner conflicts between darkness and light, good versus evil. It explains that we are the sole person in charge of feeding one or the other. The stronger wolf is inevitably the one we deliberately choose to feed over the other and could explain why sometimes fear takes over when we decide to give into it… This is a different picture that MirArt illustrates in this beautiful NFT. We see a team working as a well-coordinated ensemble whose mission is to keep balance between body and mind. The white wolf leans against the subject’s head as to influence thoughts and ideas by infusing wisdom (represented by the white strands of hair). The black wolf acts as a supporting pillar of the structure by giving strength to the body. The subtle shades of purple in the white wolf’s muzzle appear to me as evocative of the crown chakra that represents our spiritual connection to the universe. Also, the beautiful hints of red in the black wolf’s fur make me think of the root chakra that reflects our foundation and our relationship with all that allows us to feel grounded in our environment and in our life. It is said that eyes are the doorway through which we can see one’s soul. This artwork’s protagonist appears to have a beautiful soul. There are no strong emotions on her face, no joy, but no pain, only assertiveness. An inner confidence that her totem animal will support and protect her no matter what. I also notice that we see the right eye of the white wolf as opposed to the left eye of the black one. Another nice touch to illustrate a perfect equilibrium between the Yin and the Yang.
What I feel
When I dive into the subject’s eyes, I feel inner confidence. I feel empowered. I feel safe, secure and I have faith that everything will be all right. Through her eyes, I feel strong and balanced. The earthy color of the background also inspires a feeling of groundedness into the present. Nothing else matters when you lock eye contact with her.
When I saw MirArt’s name “Mir”, I immediately thought of the Slavic meaning of the word Mir (Мир): which, depending on the context, refers to “Peace”, “The World”, “The Universe”… I like to think that MirArt’s Universe is a world of peace. Mir describes his work by saying: “I Like to Express my Thoughts and Feelings in my Paintings and Spread Beauty and Love Through Art”. I must say @MirNFT, you do that beautifully! Thanks for sharing your art with the World! 🙏✌️
Here are some more NFTs from MirArt, do not hesitate to support this artist and his unique work.
About this initiative
For the past few weeks, I have been driving a campaign to offer support (ever humbly) to my fellow NFT creators and I must say, I have had the opportunity to come across amazing artwork. It is a real adventure in itself.
I decided to start writing a few thoughts about random NFTs I reviewed and figured I would create posts on my website in case it interested anyone looking for inspirations on which artists to support or which collections to keep an eye out for.
I am no expert, my only tools are my appreciation of art, my feelings and emotions, my way with words and a true desire to spread positivity in a world where, for the majority, everything is hidden behind by a big cloud of uncertainty.
May this initiative serve its humble purpose and bring support or help or positivity in any way to anyone reading it and to the artists featured in my articles. 🙏
