FERVENT FEMINIST WITH A HEART OF GOLD
“Focus on writing history! With each mint, you are putting a story in the blockchain for all generations coming after you. For me, it is not just a marketplace; it is about leaving a meaningful legacy.”
Fer Caggiano is known for her striking, colorful artworks with a distinct Latina flavor. Using her art as a vessel for the greater good, she started her NFT journey by minting photos of her original watercolor and oil artworks. Her creative process has since evolved, and she now focuses her efforts on digital and mixed techniques.
Although she has enjoyed widespread critical acclaim for many of her works, Fer considers ‘I Don’t Give A F***’ as her ‘Mona Lisa’ thus far. A bold piece particularly favored by feminists, it was selected for the juried show at the 2019 Spoleto Festival.
Fer is not just a celebrated artist in the NFT space but also a zealous collector. She has amassed a collection of more than 600 NFTs on ETH alone and loves being able to give back to the community and help it grow. Finding it difficult to choose between all the artists she admires, she rates Mari Inks Art, Amy Digi, Paul Warren, Daisa TJ, and Angel Ram among her biggest inspirations.
Dedicated to using her art for good, Fer is a proud contributor to Kindred Hearts, a charitable project comprising 7,777 NFTs where 50% of each sale is allocated to nonprofits.
Every day spent in the NFT space presents new opportunities for growth and learning. What has Fer learned from being an NFT artist? “Focus on writing history! With each mint, you are putting a story in the blockchain for all generations coming after you. For me, it is not just a marketplace; it is about leaving a meaningful legacy.” Fer is on the blockchain for the long run. She is often invited to speak at NFT shows and conferences and is passionate about educating and promoting other artists.
Born in Brazil, Fer studied at New York’s Art Students League. As a traditional artist of more than two decades, she counts historical artists such as Van Gogh, Gustave Klimt, and Egon Schiele as some of her biggest influences.
