Given 2020’s current climate with the pandemic, so many galleries and museums have been closed and there is less art available to enjoy in person. These cryptovoxel galleries offer art lovers and collectors an alternative place to consume art, and for digital artists, they are an opportunity to showcase and sell their work.
Fu combines various media to create her unique pieces of digital art. In her own words, her work “explores the human condition, balancing on the fringes between reality and an imagined world.” Appearing within the artwork, her surreal animated gifs and digital collages contain elements taken from traditional media such as ink drawing, photography and printmaking. Fu can be seen as a social digital artist in that she often collaborates with writers, as in the upcoming exhibition, but also other artists across the globe that she connects with on the various blockchain platforms where she shows her artwork.
Fu can be considered an early adopter among female digital artists, having started showcasing and selling her art on blockchain platforms such as Dada.nyc and Steemit in 2016 moving on later to digital art marketplaces such as SuperRare and KnownOrigin. These marketplaces have allowed her to showcase and sell the limited editions of her NFTs to discerning art collectors who were there to shop and collect digital art. She is also one of the few female digital artists to steadily and successfully sell her crypto art on these platforms, (according to The Blockchain Art Directory).
