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
People appear to be going about their daily chores with a glimpse of hope drawn by the illusion of a warm golden city, but the sun, instead of providing warmth, is ever watchful. Instead of providing heat, it creates a feeling of suspicion, doubt and fear. (The style also reminds me of an old vinyl album cover from Styx, somehow.)
What I feel
I begin by feeling a glimpse of hope, then it is quickly replaced by helplessness, loneliness, solitude. There is a vast emptiness caused by the cold blue of the sand dunes which, with its usual golden glow that we are accustomed to here on Earth, would normally preserve and reflect heat from the closest star above, but this black hole sun has none to give. The proximity of the sun behind the dunes makes me think that Râ is sitting there, only waiting for people to reach the mirage of the city so that he can push the sand towards them and engulf them all at once.
I like it a lot! I feel grateful to have seen it and to have experienced feelings simply by looking at it for a period of time. 🙏✌️
Here are some more NFTs from Lacertian, 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. 🙏
