Mbsjq’s skillfully crafted corner of the digital art universe marries iridescent colors and outer space to boldly go where no digital artist has gone before. You can follow Mbsjq on Twitter where he engages his followers with hints about his next drops and sneak peaks into his creative process, and on Instagram where he showcases most of his art.
We’ll be looking at some of Mbsjq’s work that has been minted on SuperRare. While some of it is still imagery, you’ll need to click through the image and visit these NFTs on SuperRare to fully appreciate the animation and sound that is featured in them.
Tea & Reflection
Tea & Reflection is Mbsjq’s earliest work on SuperRare. It was minted on November 6th, 2020 and features an astronaut (Astro) relaxing with tea under the stars while sitting on a chair propped up by a pink cloud sprouting out of a body of water. Stay with me, we’re just getting started.
Freedom finds Astro checking himself out in the reflection of a shiny physical Bitcoin. It’s unique in that it’s first tokenized art from Mbsjq that features the first cryptocurrency, and the colors used in it are unique from many of his other works. For collectors who focus on particularly on rare digital artwork within a collection of work that is different from an artist’s usual style, this is a good one to keep an eye on, especially because the moment you see Astro you can tell right away it’s an Mbsjq.
Happy Now? Actually, yes. Minted on November 20th, 2020, Happy Now features Astro blissfully engaged with brightly colored spheres falling all around him. Happy Now is even more compelling evidence from Mbsjq that it’s possible to show intense emotion in a still image through a spacesuit with an opaque visor.
There are layers of rarity in Lost Love, which was minted on December 6th, 2020. For starters, we’re used to seeing Astro happy, and in this one he miserably writhes in emotional pain as the colorful alien flowers reflect off of his visor. There also isn’t much focus on iridescence in Lost Love, which combined with the fact that we’re getting some backstory on Astro making this a piece worth watching for collectors focusing on rarity.
