$Whale and Breezy started a long-term collaboration to provide a narrative to the WHALE’s “The Vault”, one of the largest and most valuable collections of NFTs in the entire space through art curation.
Each month we highlight a specific creator or theme, providing rich visuals, high-profile artist interviews, gallery events, and more.
For the month of September 2022, the presented artist is GEORGE BOYA.
When I think about “collage,” I see curiosity, a curiosity so big to the point that even a very self-made art creation wouldn’t be enough on its own. I see the need for something more, mixed perspectives, the fusion of more souls. I think about expanding the borders of acceptance of what could be art, what could go in the work, and what could be considered worthy of being part of this new resulting creation that will now call “ours.” I don’t see a limit, in fact, I see the overcoming of the limits. I see George Boya.
Are George Boya’s collage animations cybernetic or very human? Are they living the biggest adventures or simply existing in life? Are they from ancient age or from the most contemporary times?
Is it a physical collage or a digital collage? Manual or super-tech? Mechanical or fluid?
Is it the art of the past or the future?
I won’t write pages about how George Boya started his path and where he is now with the blockchain technology, one of the most prominent figures in the crypto art space, or how his style is recognizable amongst the most various contexts.
For once, there is no need anymore to debate and discuss what is already truth.
In Beijing, the traffic is crazy. There aren’t many rules and you can find cars of each size, trucks, carts, fruit sellers, motorbikes, bicycles, and every transportation that you can think of. Very few people respect signals, and yet, they move in their ecosystem. They move slowly, like a wave, but they move together. In harmony.
And so do the works by George Boya.
