Hailing from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, interdisciplinary artist Minas Sanim is a name to be reckoned with. Juggling multiple disciplines with aplomb, Sanim’s oeuvre spans digital art, comic books, and paper mosaic art. His background in political science and international relations adds an intriguing facet to his artistic journey, and after much soul searching, he plunged headfirst into the art world, creating a distinctive style that unearths and amplifies the beauty of culture and the art of storytelling.
Sanim recently completed a mesmerizing collection of mixed media, combining digital painting and digital collage techniques. The piece he submitted for the upcoming Supernova event is a fresh extract from this series, titled ‘Nostalgic Memories’. He is also exploring another collection currently under development, diving into the depths of his past experiences with sleep paralysis.
Reflecting on his artistic journey, Sanim’s first memories of creating art trace back to his kindergarten years, with watercolors serving as his initial medium of choice. He still possesses the first piece of art he ever made in those early years, a testament to his enduring dedication to the craft. Over the past decade, he has honed his skills, carving out a successful full-time career as an artist.
Sanim is rarely short of inspiration, continuously brimming with ideas that he jots down in his physical and digital notebooks. On the infrequent occasions when inspiration wanes, he steps back to refresh, immersing himself in movies, music, and socializing with friends.
Embracing the new wave of art technology, Sanim recognizes the transformative power of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) in the art sphere. For him, NFTs have democratized access to art, influencing the evolution of both art and artists. He wholeheartedly believes that we are living in exciting times, on the precipice of further breakthroughs in the art world.
As we approach the ArtPacks Supernova Drop, Minas Sanim stands as a beacon of innovation, cultural exploration, and storytelling, promising to add a distinct flavor to the event.
