NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a type of cryptocurrency that represents ownership of digital assets such as artwork, videos or audio files.
They're stored on a blockchain, a decentralized ledger that records transactions. Crypto-wallets store NFTs, and each NFT has a unique ID. This makes them appealing to artists and collectors as they can be sure that their NFT is truly one-of-a-kind.
Therefore, NFTs can't be right-clicked and saved.
Digital Artist's Statement
As a digital artist, I am striving to tell stories through animation, art, filmmaking and visual effects that can be experienced in new and interactive ways.
Creatively, I am fascinated by the way that we communicate, which helps to inform my work.
Digital Artist's Plans
Fraser Murdoch plans to drop his genesis NFT piece, Smart Trees: Pianist, as part of his Smart Trees collection.
His projects focus on both utility and aesthetics.
Fraser plans to continue releasing new NFTs in the future, expanding the Smart Trees collection and developing other projects.
"I am fascinated by the natural occurrence of storytelling and the varied spectrum of communication."
Digital Artist's Background
As a digital artist, Fraser Murdoch was introduced to NFTs in October 2020 by Trevor Jones, with whom he has worked with on several occasions.
In 2015, Fraser was invited by Violet Jones to Trevor Jones' augmented reality exhibition at Dundas Street Gallery in Edinburgh. Little did he know then that this wouldn't be the last time Trevor would introduce him to art partnering cutting-edge technology.
In 2020, Trevor hired Fraser to work on a collaboration of his with Jose Delbo, followed by another with Ice Cube the next year. Then, at the end of 2021, Fraser was hired to animate the Bitcoin Angel's Share NFTs.
In 2022, Fraser continued to work for Trevor – helping him create his Angel Ascension NFTs.
In addition, Fraser has recently developed his own genesis project and invested in NFTs, cryptocurrencies and the infrastructure necessary to support his business ventures in blockchain technology.
Looking ahead, Fraser plans to release several long-term collections of NFTs in the coming years as he continues to explore the fascinating potential of this field.
NFTs offer a lot of promise for artists like Fraser Murdoch, and it will be exciting to see what he does with them in the future.
