Tezos Tuesday Community Showcase - January 3, 2023

María combines a delicate illustration with poignant poetry to express the bittersweet feeling of relishing fond memories of lost loved ones. 

The “Skull-II” is an impressively detailed piece of digital illustartion. The skull appears to be 3-dimensional with Jacktheoneeye’s impeccable crosshatching skills.

Saeed’s acrylic painting captures the universal feeling of loneliness.  

“Feel” reminds us to slow down and experience the world with all of our senses. We should rekindle our childlike wonder for the universe and take the time to truly explore the gift of life that we have been given. 

“Symbiosis” tells the story of someone struggling to hold themselves together as a war rages inside their mind. 

Luqman’s shot of a seagull transports me directly to the beach. I can smell the salty breeze as I suspiciously stare down a seagull who is eyeing my lunch. 

Ishtar Spring creatively uses AI to create stained glass pieces that tell a story blending both European and Asian traditions.

“Afro-Fi” is a shining example of what makes the NFT art community, and the Tezos community in particular so wonderful. Each piece comes with an elaborate character backstory that tells an epic tale of a battle between good and evil. 

“Reflection of the Past” is so relatable. I can feel the overwhelming weight of too many thoughts and memories swirling in my mind. I can relate to the model, who is trying to remain poised and calm, despite the thoughts literally clouding her vision.  

Soumya’s portrait is an expression of macabre happiness. Her subjects dress in creepy costumes as they embrace the whimsical joys of life. 

Pedro’s “Balance” reminds me to keep perspective on my place in the universe. Humans can build the most intricate of structures, but they will all be dwarfed by the vast emptiness of the sky above us. 

“Big Sur” is a gorgeous painterly photograph by EchoBravoArt. The pastel tones and soft lines make this piece feel like a masterful watercolor painting rather than a photograph. 

Vik’s black and white street photograph reminds me that light can always be found in the shadows. There is always a bright spot if you just keep looking for it. 

Carly’s “Harmony” is an expression of the joy that can be found in the world around us that is just waiting to be found. A photographer cannot plan to shoot a rainbow. They are fickle and unpredictable. She must always be ready to capture the moment when it arrives. 

Erdem’s photograph inspires a sense of inner peace in me. The gentle blues, the soft clouds, and the delicate reflections of the trees on rippled water make me want to sit and contemplate the scene for hours. 

Boxio3’s “How I Disappear is a moving piece. It captures the fear of being erased from someone’s memory day by day, as they move on with their life and leave you behind. 

Mellodora’s piece makes me contemplate the simple beauty of nature. 

Her decision to shoot the flower through a rain speckled window makes me feel a touch of sadness for the disconnection that most modern humans have from nature. We see it, we enjoy it, but we struggle to be a true part of it. 

Dani’s simple black and white portrait took my breathe away. 

The feelings of hopelessness, despair, and a crushing loneliness come through in this powerful piece. 

Celalettin captured a magical moment as a cowboy guided his horses across a magnificent salt lake at sunset.

I love the added touch of the sun flare peaking out from behind the cowboy, emphasizing his vital connection to his horse companion. 

Violet’s work captures a yearning to be a part of the world that we walk across each day. We are all connected to the universe, and Violet has talent for capturing that desire to experience ourselves as a connected particle in the web of reality. 

The animation skills displayed in this piece are stellar. 

Mels Kim wrote, “It wasn’t an illusion or a vision. An explicit entity of a thousand little particles was spinning in an insanely beautiful cloud of energy…”

Fizzz Unusual wows me with this dark twist on a floral piece. The contrast of the usually bright flowers and butterflies with the dark tones catches my attention and delights my brain. 

This is the kind of piece that just makes me sigh with joy. Is it a photograph? A painting? Digital art? I don’t know or care. I just want to stare at it, swim in it, be apart of it. 

Rondelle wowed me with “Serenity”. It is a completely digital piece that just looks so textured. I couldn’t believe that it wasn’t fabric art. 

I was instantly drawn in this stellar example of street photography by Paddy McDougall.

The way that the light inside the food truck is so much brighter than its surroundings draws my eye deep into this peace. 


Thank you for exploring my favorite Tezos art from the week of January 10, 2023. 

Please remember to follow any artist whose work you like on Twitter. Retweet their pieces, let them know why you like their art, and maybe consider collecting a few editions.

Until next week, enjoy your Tezos Tuesday!
