Dzanar talks to us about his new NFT release with G-Eazy, working with industry giants such as Akon and Chris Brown, and more.
Aditya – Hey Dzanar, Glad to have you for the interview. How was the first quarter of this year for you?
Dzanar – It’s an exciting time for me right now! Getting new inspirations and new collabs from different artists. Also, putting my hyper-focus on my art and exhibition too!
Aditya – Could you share more deets on your recent NFT release with G-Eazy?
Dzanar – Gerald’s NFT project gave me a lot of freedom to express my creativity and show the fans different moods and personalities. Connecting with fans is always important. G-Eazy and I funneled different personalities and identities and put out different layers of “The Geralds”.
Aditya – What’s your message behind this project?
Dzanar – Be open and comfortable with what you stand for and what you like to express. Show different sides of G-Eazy and buckle up the fans into our journey.
Aditya – You’ve worked with some music industry giants such as Akon, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Kesha, and more. How do you feel about that?
Dzanar – Connecting with significant artists, with each different persona and talent, is beautiful. I love the challenge and the process behind it. It’s an honor, to grow up with their music and in the end, deliver a piece of your idea. Come one, that’s cool, right?! I believe each individual is exceptional and should always believe in themselves if they have specific goals to achieve.
Aditya – Which was the first NFT you’ve sold?
Dzanar – It was my Endless Summer collection on NiftyGateway with Sam Feldt.
Aditya – How long would you think it’ll take for the market to stabilize and the recent crash?
Dzanar – It will take at least two years for the majority to realize that blockchain is more than just crypto and designs. Slowly the majority will value reliability more. It’s all about spreading the right information and showing the endless possibilities.
Aditya – Do you think cryptocurrencies are the future? If yes, why?
Dzanar – Yes, I believe it’s the future. Back in the day majority criticized the internet or mobile phones cause of a lack of information and disbelief or sometimes just bad experiences. In the long run, it will reshape into a solid piece, and people will realize the value behind specific cryptocurrencies. Imagine buying an expensive watch with an NFT or buying a house without any party. How cool if everything is programmed for you and transactions or deals move automatically. It makes things super easy.
Aditya – What’s your creative process like?
Dzanar – Sometimes, I write some keywords down or find some inspiration by wandering through the internet.
Aditya – What are your tools to design? An iPad?
Dzanar – I love the Ipad; I can draw seamlessly! Sometimes I zone out and create some illustrations I mostly don’t share online, haha. But primarily, I work in Cinema 4d, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Zbrush.
Aditya – Lastly, do you think Elon Musk will capitalize the mars?
Dzanar – I think he will show the world that there are greater possibilities outside the earth. And through fast-growing technology, we would be able to capitalize on multiple planets. Elon is already sharing information on building electric cars so the new generation can take it over. Someday our kids will be able to go back and forth to mars. I can’t wait when humankind starts using the zero-point gravity method. Traveling will be much faster and easier to discover different galaxies. Or I’m just being weird now? :)
