Hello Community & artists. I’m adriano_cadau85 NFT artist and today I share with you my recent 3 collections currently available on the best three Marketplaces you can find on the web. Superrare, Foundation and Marketplace. If you do not have an idea about who I am, it’s probable :), I invite you to read my last article where I introduce exhaustively myself and my background at this link:

All these collections are set by 4 drops digitally painted in Photoshop CC.

1) WANDER available on SuperRare

#WANDER: the story behind

WANDER is a n.4 artworks collection where the main focus is concentrated on the theme of loneliness and strong emotions that derive from perceiving oneself abandoned to oneself. What does it mean in depths to feel alone and useless, sacrificed by an unclean and perfidious destiny to wander in the indifference of invisibility in the eyes of others and of the world in which one lives?. It could be an illusion of the mind, a mirage, an evanescent image that dissolves before the eyes but the weight of that perception remains, is felt and the burden deriving from its weight on the soul will be devastating.

It is known, ourselves, our identity modulation depends by the way others shape the image of ourselves and the relation we have with it is related to our ability to accomplish the others desires and expectations. When we excellence, it’s all good, when we want to be who or what we want to,without taking into account others opinions, we fail, or worse, we got destroyed. The whole entire world that surround us collapse and there is no neither hand nor help willing to sustain us. Wander is a tribute to all these situations that we constantly live in daily routine and that we had personally experimented once in life, or, heard or read on a newspaper distracted by the idea it will never happen to us.

In order to convey the meaning of the context I used jagged and dynamic abstract grundge forms, apparently rapid and sinister to represent the backgrounds and environments, always rich in gaudy pointed details, highly contrasting with abundant use of blacks and whites, dissonant shades where warm and strong colors prevail. In this context of bright colors there is always present the key supporting element of all the works that has been symbolically represented with a small spaceship. This science fiction aircraft is the icon of the man who wanders alone, forgotten and apparently invisible in a world that appears to him distorted, degenerated, corrupted and degraded, just as if it had been devastated by a cataclysm and reduced to a pile of rubble or after being hit by an apocalyptic war. A war that rages undisturbed, in silence, as if no one was aware of it or more simply as if everyone were subjected to its dominant power and its pestilence. In this destroyed abstract world, the little spaceship continues its journey unabated and aimlessly.

This collection is not the only product of the imagination but takes inspiration from the social problem of marginalization and withdrawal from public life, uncomfortable and often deliberately ignored matters. Wander, in its own way, with its abstract colors and its picturesque flashy brushstrokes, wants to give a cry of comfort and respond to an invisible s.o.s. acting as a foothold and support to all those people who are affected by the indifference that dominates our world, trying to exorcise the pain they carry inside.

#technique:

I used different brushes for the realization of these works: circle brushes, grundge, euphoria brushes, abstract stones & rocks, gravity brushes, cutting edges brushes.

Program used: Photoshop CC.

#colors:

As my common taste, I choice a combination of armonic colors where we can excel purple-blue tones.

2) ARBORESCENT available on Foundation

#ARBORESCENT: the story behind

Arborescent is a collection of 4 works of art of a dynamic abstract genre, which intends to overwhelm the observer and drag him into a vortex of strength and energy. All the works are made with inclined brushstrokes and shapes bent diagonally, conveying a sense of frantic, shapeless and highly kinetic movement. The main theme is that of nature, which, as in the collection shared on OpenSea “naturalism”, dominates unstoppable in its vigor and expansion. Unlike “naturalism”, Arborescent has another protagonist that comes to life within its frames; I’m talking about the human brain and its neuronal structure.

At this point a person may wonder what is the connection between nature and the brain; well, without a doubt, the modality of connection and communication through a dense network of subtle ramifications, able to distribute information from a central point to the most distant centers in a few moments; both nature and the human brain are highly efficient in matters of transmission and expansion, at least for me and so I decided to express this concept through the use of stylized figures, highly dense as branches, pointed disharmonious shapes that seem to move in diagonal towards a specific direction in space, which gives a kinetic sense of rapid and uneven movement just like that of a data transmission signal that moves in space quickly and imperceptibly, and spherical shapes, which represent recursion and eternity apparent of this highly efficient operating system that connects directly in these 2 forms of representation: nature and brain.

The use of plant and vegetable brushes creates a visual assonance in line with the idea of nature and that of the brain, as I associate the image of the blossoming of plants with that of cerebellar development, like a multidirectional mushroom; The name “arborescent” derives from the thought of this phenomenon of rapid expansion in the neighboring space and from the energy inherent in it, which wants to identify the power of our mind comparable to plants in nature that expands, grows and develops all around generating new life. Nature and its floral expression are the symbol of breath, which it is the action that makes life sustain itself.

#techinique:

As my preference, also for the realization of this collection I used shaped brushes, defragmented and dispersion brushes the most.

Program used: Photoshop CC.

#colors:

I have choosen brilliant colors also for these works, because I think there is a strong connection between warmth colors, unstoppable nature energy: high dynamism produce energy and heat.

3) PLATFORM 2B available on Makersplace

#PLATFORM 2B: the story behind

After months of waiting and procrastination, I am finally going to upload the second collection consisting of 4 abstract works called PLATFORM 2B on the MakerSplace platform.
It was a very tiring job not so much from the technical point of view of realization but from its significant point of view; Platform 2B recalls the many difficulties that man encounters in his daily life starting from childhood up to the after-effects of adult life; an endless journey through ups and downs, chaos, joys, grudges, moments of light and shadow, all seasoned with a good and intense touch of sarcasm. Let’s face it, life is beautiful if you don’t take it seriously :).

The intent of the abstract series is to deal with these complex and delicate themes and recontextualize them in a grotesque and bizarre, almost ridiculous way, but always careful not to hurt the sensitivity in this inherent theme, taking into account its seriousness, almost trying to make people forget the anxiety and moodiness that are automatically triggered by the mere thought of it.

It is not the first time that I find myself dealing with life and everyday life through works of art; even the WANDER collection, soon available on SuperRare, although for now I don’t know when, I’m waiting for a feedback for a collaboration for the launch, deals with similar issues unlike that Wander focuses more on aspects of sociality such as socialization and isolation, themes in my opinion very current and often deliberately ignored and underestimated, which touch me, to tell the truth, very closely in the personal having always been a very introverted, solitary and sensitive person on a character level.

PLATFORM 2B evokes the difficulty of everyday life, through the use of figures and symbolisms such as mainly the presence of a kind of aircraft that flies and orientates itself randomly in space, always fleeing from something dark, which appears to chase it, that aimlessly support it; a one-way journey which is life, without counting on the help of anyone, often in anguish and anxiety for the fear of not making it and not being able to look others in the eyes for the shame of facing one’s failure. The degraded, destroyed and decadent environments depicted with a good dynamic and warm pictorial touch using jagged brushes that reproduce dispersive and defragmented images, tread and emphasize this reality, a reality in which we all live and are involuntary participants and actors.

The series consists of 4 pieces where each has a 2-letter acronym that when put together form the word NR, AT, MA, TA.
This is the famous game NIER_AUTOMATA, of which I am a huge fan (I’m playing it), which I decided to integrate into the composition as a supporting key as the theme of the game is set in a corroded, apocalyptic and degraded context of reality, where the war and the resulting suffering is king.

#technique:

As all my collection I used the same mode of paintings and brushes. My favorites are euphoria, grundge and cutting edges, this one very good to create fragmented and dispersion effects.

Program used: Photoshop CC.

#colors:

I used a mix of gradients as blu, light blue, purple, red. I really love the results the give as final end.
