$Whale and Breezy started a long-term collaboration to provide a narrative to the $WHALE's "The Vault", one of the largest and most valuable collections of NFTs in the entire space through art curation. Each month we will highlight a specific creator or theme, through rich visuals, high-profile artist interviews, gallery events, and more. The focus is to foster an interactive experience complete with catalogs, newsletters, and other media to explore. The artist of the month of July is Skeenee.

For the month of July, we present Skeenee's unmistakable style and his works collected in The Vault Collection by $Whale.

His love for drawing and color is conveyed through the digital medium with a material sensitivity that challenges the actual existence of a screen between our eyes and the work of art.

Skeenee's works are halfway between the natural evolution of those studies of anatomy and forms in traditional art academies and the legacy of a tattoo artist's fresh and energetic style. Yet, both his paths converge towards the dematerialization into the digital ether.

Although his curiosity for technology has led him to explore new means of expression, his attitude toward the creative process remains strong to separate the creative moment from the critical one.

When I draw something, I never judge what I am drawing. My mind needs to be in my drawing, I never start critiquing what I'm doing when I'm doing it.

After years of studying and practicing a wide variety of techniques (from 2D animation and illustration to video game graphic design and pixel art), Skeenee opened his own tattoo studio in 2019, when Connie Digital shared her experience in the Crypto world with him, passing on the full potential of the community, which he was quick to join in October of that year. From then on, he implemented the use of the third dimension and the launch of his own social token ($SKULL) and began frequenting virtual environments and galleries.

The Crypto Community becomes a second family where he can experiment, propose new ways of interaction and exchange, seek advice, and where the fast flow of time prevents the artist from creating those superstructures that harness the creative essence.

In the simple lines, his expressive authenticity and identity manifest.

It is in the encounter, confrontation, and recovery of the true essence of the creative spirit that Skeenee's art lies. Finding in the blockchain the best tool to reach the other.

To discover Skeene's works from The Vault collection, reserve a front-row seat in the exhibition scheduled at the end of this month on the Arium platform.
