welcome to cryptoart city — desultor (2023)

desultor joins jonCates at the saloon to chew the fat && continue DOS DAO DISCUSSIONS! we begin by discussing Crypto, Crypto Art, and then get in to all things desultor, from his early influences to most recent works. MAX CAPACITY swings in say’n, howdy to all his pals all ‘round, grabs a cold one, and saddles up to join the conversation. 🍺🍻💀

jonCates: Crypto is often compared to the Wild West. what do you think of that ser? and how do you feel about Crypto Art?
desultor: aw shit feels accurate sometimes. gunslingers, rowdiness: no rules just right. Like some kinda manifest destiny, crypto art feels like an artists promised land in a world of chaos. it’s a place anyone in the world, of any flavor profile and experience can craft an identity, a body of work and engage folks 24/7
