CRYPTO ART – Begins presents Ilan Katin
Ilan Katin is an illustrator, 2D animator and tech savvy.
His art reflects his versatility, no work is alike and the creative process is constantly evolving.
WHO IS ILAN KATIN?
Born in the United States, specifically in a suburb of New York, Ilan Katin still moves with his family as a small child to Israel in a Kibbutz, an independent, closed and cooperative community.
When he returns to the United States he receives a scholarship to the School of Visual Arts, where he first obtains a degree in Fine Arts and, then, one in Computer Art.
After developing her skills with hand drawing, Katin begins experimenting with computer drawing. Today he works as an illustrator and with 2D animation.
NFT works are abstract paintings where shape and color dominate the space of the canvas. The artist is inspired by the free and improvised gesture that unpredictably determines the development of the work.
Non-figurative production is only part of his work: in fact, animation is a fundamental component of his expressive method.
“Walk (A) long the Hodl Road” (2020) is an animated NFT in which an anthropomorphic creature called by the artist “Theater Eye” walks through the world of Cryptovoxels – virtual universes of Ethereum – equipped with a chair that carries around the neck and surrounded by a holographic halo of “anger”.
Ilan Katin builds a story around this animation that tells of virtual creatures that as the first beings explore the crypto reality, which still represents a wasteland devoid of any familiar reference.
Katin’s production, however, is not limited to animation and abstract compositions. Among his works also appear NFT with a strongly realistic character that only for composition and details deviate from reality.
The variety of styles that Katin touches through her expressive research demonstrates how she is an artist who masters artistic expression and is not afraid to experiment.
