YOU MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK
“It opened up a whole new world for art because I was never used to making my own creations and selling them.”
Trizton Delbaugh is a 26-year-old multimedia artist originally from Denver, Colorado. Trizton is a lifelong artist who is oozing in style, creativity, and breathtaking art.
His creativity was apparent from an early age: ‘I’ve been drawing on stencils since I was 5, and on the back of Chinese food menus when I was 6. Basically, I’ve always had a pen or pencil in my hand.”
However, it wasn’t until 2015 that he began taking art seriously. “A bunch of my friends was getting into music and recording raps,” he remembers. “So I would be around them and work on cover art, writing music, and producing beats. That was the first time I was around people who were taking creativity seriously.”
That involvement and the creative environment were the perfect space for his artistic expression to grow. He turned his attention to online platforms to share his work and meet more creatives – and they introduced him to the world of NFTs. “I started getting into group chats and interacting with people who were more focused on art than music,” he says. “Then came 2020, and the scene started to take off. So, I jumped right in.” You make your own luck.
As Trizton discovered more about the empowerment and creative autonomy provided by the NFT space, he knew his moment was now. “It opened up a whole new world for art because I was never used to making my own creations and selling them. It gave me an avenue to really focus on the kind of imagery that I want to make. I could make my own creations and artworks.”
Following this shift in mindset, he began extracting his array of artistic skills to harmonize with digital art’s extensive tools and possibilities. “I have thousands of styles. Digitally, I do a little bit of everything.”
From full-scale digital drawings and manipulating pictures to distorting textures, Trizton is constantly testing the limits and showcasing what can be in digital art. Interestingly, digital art only makes up 10% of his work, but he uses the blockchain to authenticate physical work. A stable outline for his artistic process lies between this sporadicity of several creative practices. “When I’m working on art, I tell myself a story as I’m going along. I don’t like to start out with a plan. I need to keep that element of surprise alive for myself. I like to play it like a video game and not know what the end is going to look like.”
