“If there’s a way I’d describe my art- it definitely has influence from graffiti. But, I would also say a few unpopular theories are thrown in there. Y’know, thought-provoking. Get you really thinking about things.”
What is art without a message and a bit of chaos upon delivery to get the mind moving? At age fourteen, Depo1 had a spray can in hand- leaving his mark around Miami streets. Between lettering and characters, he came to create a passion for his artistic language. He gained a drive to create pieces that invoke its onlookers to question their reality. Years passing and pesky rules took the artist from the streets to the canvas. Continuing his characters and allowing his background of street art to influence his new compositions, he allowed his art to evolve. As the world spins to a new age, so do the innovations we make towards breaking boundaries. As we move towards a digital world, so do some of the practices we consider to be grounded in tradition. As we break through these bonds, Depo1 has found a new inspiration.
With his experience and newfound intrigue, Depo1 is deciding to place his thought-provoking pieces onto the NFT landscape. As the era of cryptocurrency continues to permeate through the economic sphere, things like NFTs are shaking what we thought of the concept of currency. In that manner, our artist has found a new inspiration, a new type of innovation. He hopes that this digital marketplace can help facilitate and spread The use of different currencies and products not only for his art but for things he has an interest in preserving. With plans in the future to invest in sustainability efforts, he hopes that something like this will continue to shape and provoke the thoughts of minds willing to listen and an Earth that can use a bit of lovin’. In a sense, he found a way to converge his teenage passions into something tangible for not only himself but anybody willing to invest in the future, in change. To bend minds and turn time, to a new age- enjoy the work of Depo.
