Meet the Artist
Marina Ahmadova, why do you make art?
This is a very deep and broad question. I don't think anyone can really answer it. For my point of view, it's the same as asking why Im breathe or why the world exists. This is something really big. I guess I do it because I can't not do it. This is who I am. This is how I go through sorrow and joy, happiness and sadness. I am reflecting on what is happening in the world, on the things that surround me, what I like or dislike. I think for me, in some way it is like therapy, my lifeline in this chaotic world. I'm in love with art and at the same time continuously analyzing it and admiring it every single day.
How did you find out about NFT & what made you decide to deal with it and create NFTs yourself?
I discovered NFT by accident about a year ago and didn't even really understand what it was from the very beginning, but I saw the potential and became interested in it. Then my colleague and I came up with the Totti collection about the circus and all its components. It took some time to bring it to life. In the summer of 2022, I tried my hand at AI art for the first time. It was amazing and completely fascinated me! Step by step, I entered the NFT art market and continue to learn new aspects of this amazing area every day.
What personal info do you want the audiences to know about you?
I am a woman, wife and mother, daughter, artist, friend and sister. I studied as an architect and restorer, worked for a very long time as an interior and product designer, and created a brand of silk scarves. But to be honest, from my personal point of view, it is not so important to know all about the artist. I like to look at art and talk about it. How it was made, what is reflected in it. There are a lot of anonymous authors and collectors in the NFT area, and I think this is much more pure and honest. There is no manipulation, we all have the same opportunities.
