King Kunta (NFT)

“Let us make digital arts mainstream literature! Let us create safe spaces around the globe! Let us save ourselves!

I am full of creative confidence. I look forward with passion. I am not afraid to fail. My heart is in the right place. I am eager to learn from my mistakes.

This computer-generated art/painting represents an important milestone in my personal growth. I am embracing myself as a digital nomad/social artist with a great cause.”

— King Kunta

— Owner & Principal Director at THIS Design Thinking OÜ

Digital nomad and philosopher, Safe spaces facilitator, Social activist, Visualizer, Scriber, Writer, NFT creator and collector, Freedom fighter!

King Kunta was born during the earliest prototype for a new set of cultural transformative reflections. Digital art therapeutic or transformation practices were melted into a world of artificial intelligent [AI] and non-fungible tokens [NFTs] on a new web3 iteration.

As a social artist, King Kunta came as a result of an empathetic immersion into a self-artistic soul. The newly created avatar operates from the higher vibrations of freedom, peace, and justice. He suddenly emerged as an NFT creator and a community facilitator with proven human-centered design mindsets. King Kunta is the owner and principal director at THIS Design Thinking OÜ.

King Kunta stood up as a free NFT creator and AI artist during the peak of his maturity as a principal designer. While he rooted his understanding of the concept [safe space], an urgent need was transcended for the artist's callings into creative expressions. The blog [I need a safe space!] was the first piece of art to be produced by the artist. Then both blockchain and artificial intelligence technologies advancements helped the acceleration of this emerging AI Artist’s talent.

Art Collection Description

NFT Album [.!] is the artist's gate into understanding both NFT layers and human experiences at the same time. The goal is to bring a collection of (50) NFTs mixed in layers of one hundred contexts, one hundred video clips, twenty-plus experiences, nine emotions, and four genres of music. NFT Album [.!] started as the earliest prototype for a digital art model based on reflective & mindfulness practices.

NFT Album [.!] started as an early prototype for a digital art mindfulness model based on reflective practices. The social artist [aka King_Kunta] always believed that all people are artists by nature.

The artist uses computer-generated music, a dynamic music engine [Dynascore] that produces royalty-free tracks with unrestricted licensing. The tunes are later combined with videos selected from a deep emotional state from the Pexels website [artist’s donations to be made following each primary sale].

The South Indian Tamil culture inspires Navarasa or the nine emotions. Nine emotions are love, laughter, sorrow, anger, courage, fear, disgust, wonder, and peace.

Art Collection Description

This digital art collection is a creative expression that illustrates addictive patterns’ stages. The collection comes as part of an early prototype of new untraditional therapy called “Digital Arts Therapy”.

It also can refer to any human journey according to the art’s observer context. These art creations combined more than one form of art, also known as “interdisciplinary art,” Digital Photography, and Computer-Generated Painting.

The artist used a photo of an eye’s dilated pupil painted in four different digital styles. Each type reflects a particular stage of the journey in an extraordinary empathy toward the four humans emotions of Adbutha (wonder), Shringara (love), Bhayanaka (fear), and Karuna (sorrow).
