Hi, and welcome to the newest issue of NFT Matrix, where I present NFT Artists’ work. There is no presumption or judgement here, only exposure. The artist I am presenting is Camibus. Effective and Dali-esque is how I would describe their work. I look at a couple of the artist’s pieces from their various platforms and provide my feelings and thoughts. Hope you enjoy, I’m always open to feedback.

Piece: “Renewal” Link

Artist: “After the turmoil comes the new beginning”

NFTMatrix: Soft color palettes contrast with a stark figure draped over an egg. The title makes me think of life, death, love, conflict. Cycles and repetition seem to be inevitable in life.

Piece: “the drΞam” Link

Artist: “The piece was inspired by Dali's Le Sommeil (Sleep) but instead of an old man, we see a baby, a symbol for new life, a new beginning, a revolution in art and in thought. The floating eth symbols are inspired by The Endless Column by internationally acclaimed Romanian artist Constantin Brancusi, symbolizing the concept of infinity. The baby is sitting on a floating canvas symbolizing the fabric of space-time, on top of which lie the stars in the Universe. Looking at a blue planet with a small moon besides it, the baby is pondering its future: he will be the one to shape it. Dali's piece was called Sleep. This is my interpretation of what the old man was dreaming about. (or maybe it's just baby Vitalik :)”

NFTMatrix: I like that the artist draws inspiration from Dali, it is evident in their style. The colors remind me of a desert sunrise or sunset. The scene is very dreamy, and I like the contrast between realistic and surrealistic.

Piece: “Icarus” Link

Artist: “We all know how Icarus' tragic tale ended but with this piece I wanted to explore that moment full of hope before he took flight. Painted in Procreate, 2021.”

NFT Matrix: The artist takes on a traditional story, and reimagines it in a novel way. I think the hope comes through in the lightness of the piece, the carefree stance of the male figure. I think the triangle highlights a contrast by being both 2-d and 3-d. The absence of head or leg makes me think how often hope involves faith (not thinking). Not sure if the absence of the left leg indicates something missing, like how Icarus’ wings ended up being detrimental to his flight. I’m also unsure about the cape as wings, maybe it is a spectre of death. It seems to be blurred, indicating action (perhaps falling off the back of young Icarus).

Well, I hope you enjoyed this brief introduction to the artist! Find their links here.
