Yana Kratsevych is a self-taught Contemporary and NFT Artist trying to find a new expressive language of beauty.
I’m a digital artist who was born and raised in Ukraine, and currently reside in the Czech Republic.
On the morning of February 24, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. In February 2022, just as the rest of the world, my entire life changed because of the war that Russia has started. From one day to another I was facing extreme financial difficulties.
As refugees, my children and I fled to the Czech Republic because of the war that Putin started in Ukraine.
I’m a mother who is struggling to find the words to explain to my 4-year-old son Danyil and 7-year-old daughter Asia why they can’t go back home to Ukraine.
In light of the ongoing military conflict, people from all around the world send their donations to Ukraine via NFT sales, as artists and activists turn to them over older fundraising methods.
And NFT helps me to spread my words!
As a painter, I was instantly impressed with the NFT technology and its ability to act as a vehicle for proof of ownership for artists. Traditional galleries are kind of like the old world.
My pictures are a part of me. They transport the feelings I had. They are a way to express myself, a way to explain the things I am not able to with spoken words.
What equipment/software/materials did I use? Infinite Painter (Infinite Studio LLC) + Android + Stylus Pen
My target is to create something significant and unique.
Getting into NFTs is the easy part. Staying and proving your value is hard. But that’s also my reason to strive and keep improving my skills. I found my new home among the community – amazing artists and collectors, trusting friends and believers.
What is NFT?
An NFT (Non-fungible token) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, which can be sold and traded. The NFT can be associated with a particular digital or physical asset (such as a file or a physical object) and a license to use the asset for a specified purpose. An NFT can be traded and sold on digital markets. Most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin, Shiba Inu, or dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently.
NFTs, are unique and not mutually interchangeable, which means no two NFTs are the same.
NFT is the new Art revolution. For the first time in history digital Art has the possibility to be unique again. With NFT, digital Art can now be an original piece, not only a copy of copies.
