My name is Keen Varela, I am a 27-year-old Artist, From Argentina

How did you or your project get started on your journey?
I have always loved art, it is something that I have been passionate about since I was a child. I like it in all its forms of expression: writing, painting, drawing, music and photography. As a girl, I wrote a book about my local environment and made several drawings of different sizes. I always really liked drawing and painting! With the covid pandemic this year I started 5 months ago  making my first paintings in oil. I love anime, at that time I was watching The Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix, and I fell in love with the characters, so I decided to make some paintings of them! I still need to finish Escanor to have the complete Team. I made a Twitter account to share my paintings and I saw that there were many great artists doing NTF’s which I loved! I have been a fan of crypto since 2015 and the idea of ​​art and crypto together was amazing! From there I started my journey through the world of NTF’s. I made several works of art like Son Goku, Gohan and Vegetta, they are digitalized reworks of my own drawings. Also, I made Alex’s Art Work 10 in 1, referring to the fact that we are all different, but equal at the same time and that the value of each person is the same! I firmly believe that we all deserve the same respec,t despite our differences. I also made art that I have posted on Twitter of XRP. I also made a Diego Maradona piece the day, but he sadly died (RIP). I adore animals and I also made a lot of art based on them, like the cats that I have posted on Rarible!

Where do you see yourself in the future in relation to your works?
I honestly do not know where the future will take me, all I hope is that it is beautiful, and that my works generate positive feelings in people. For the moment I am taking care of thinking about the present moment! 

Tell us about your favourite artists both NFT and traditional and any projects you are keen on and why?
My favourite famous painting artists are, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dali, and John Wiliiam WaterHouse. Contemporary physical Artists who are my favourites are Mickle Shiv and Trevor Jones. NTF artists who I get inspired by and love their Art can be found on Twitter as follows:

There are many more great artists around the ecosystem, and many more who’s work I will grow to love too soon! 

Talk us through your creative process, your best state of mind, environment etc to work in?
I really love creating and I think that time is very valuable and relative to how we use it. I try to do everything I set out to do in terms of art, whenever I can. As for the moods, I think they are the correct at the moment I make my art, since everything is, was and will be as it should . I love Van Gogh’s starry night and he was depressed when he created it. I love the colorful Heseosis Giffs and they seem ivery cheerful. So I appreciate all the sentiment that can be represented in their Art. As for the environment, it is in my own home, although it would not be a bad thing to paint outdoors as it can be really beautiful. 

Any other exciting developments you need your public to know about?

This week I am posting new artwork, the first being a video! It is a Psycadelic, Geometric collection of 8 videos that I was very interested in sharing. I love geometry and I love psychedelic art so I couldn’t miss it. It’s called Life Is Full Of Color My WonderLand. It is based on Alice in Wonderland, because I believe that this is life and in the cryptographic world, one falls down the rabbit hole and learns things that one did not think possible! I put life is full of color because it is what I think, there are many beautiful things in this world to see. Unfortunately today there are many people who are depressed, like I was a for long time. I want to show that beyond all the bad things life is always worth living, and the value of life is very important.
