Eternity is tenuous when thoughts become reflections of the purest emotion.

Moments like these were never meant to be spent alone.

We will be selling artist MITSUME’s first NFT art piece. Every month, one new NFT art piece will be released on the last day of every month in 2022. As MITSUME will not be releasing many NFT arts aside from SuperRare, so this is a rare NFT art series. A portion of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to Carbon180.

Pomegrenade is a mixed media painting I created in 2018 (Antwerp, Belgium) as a part of my semi-solo show “Freak Shop” at the gallery Collectiv National and later in 2019 was exhibited at BOZAR Museum (Brussels, Belgium). The artwork is inspired by still life paintings of Renaissance Age and composed with a contemporary surreal approach. The representation of the uncanny fruit includes 38 female portraits; smiling, thinking, sleeping, screaming and gazing into the universe…

SALT

I drink the elixir of melodie’s Colors fill my lungs, my heart, my mind, my body, and soul Letting the enigma of spectrums lift my wings higher and higher Illuminating my eyes full of boundless tonalities Until I start to fall, dive, and sink back into the blank canvas Unleashing my rainbows left and right Raining down my secret hues onto the gradient filled wonder land of sin-esthesia The land of my third eye A piece dedicated to my third eye. I’m thankful for my synesthesia, and I’m learning to embrace it more. This piece is a tipping point into a new art direction for me, a utilization of multiple musicians to achieve new colors with vibrant gradients throughout. This photograph depicts how sinfully beautiful my synesthesia is, and I’m giving you a taste of it. I can’t wait to show you more. Synesthesia colors inspired by “Realiti” by Grimes “One Last Kiss” by Hikaru Utada, and “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine. This NFT includes a signed edition museum grade fine art paper print.

“Kedisan” is the first of three pieces of my genesis series, “Serendipity”. East Bali is famed for its wild volcanic landscapes, lush vegetation, and quaint villages barely touched by modernity. It’s also a place I’ve become incredibly familiar with over the past two years, with kind-hearted and curious faces greeting me at every turn. The global pandemic had a severe impact on Bali’s tourism sector, and led to the vast majority of hospitality workers with little choice but to return to more labour-intensive work in their home villages across the island. For myself, it meant an abrupt halt to my work schedule and an incredibly challenging period of personal growth. I became intrigued by the simplistic beauty of the patterns found in traditional lines of agricultural work, and, influenced by my obsession with RPG games for many years prior, I caught myself progressively engrossed in capturing the wonderful people and places I stumbled upon. It’s the serendipitous moments like this, combined with my deep-rooted love for photography and the outdoors, that ultimately became my therapy.

“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.” – Rumi. Capturing the natural grace & strenght of The Wrestling Champion, was a joyful moment. With kids playing around in the water, the decor that i set up came to life .

Namtar falls into the sky, inverting the order. Profaning the heavens, hacking through chthonic interfaces the ciphers of heights and, taking possession of the streams of ascent, decrypts Nifela, stealing from the cloudy womb the virtual cold of a pure future, baking it in codes of optics to ocularly load into the present.
