NFT is an amazing chance to earn, learn & grow within a short amount of time. Something like this is hard to happen twice.
NFTs are really shaking the art industry, and are expected to give it some more. As a project member of CypherArts, we want nothing more than to feature their stunning artwork and ensure the NFT approach is made to protect artists' copyright.
We got the chance to sit with Heyun Le, one of our first artists to join CypherArts as an Indie Artist. If there's one word to describe her art style, it would be 'Straightforward".
Take a look at all of her artworks, and you'll get my point.
How are you handling with all this hype?
"It's a bit overwhelming, but I gotta say it worths all the wait. Never have I ever think those artworks could actually become more of a hobby. Apart from the income, the recognition I've received is way more valuable."
Beside this, art was just something I do on the side
"Most of the time I spend on doing work & company projects. Sketching art is what I do outside of work to blow off some steam. It's enjoyable watching those arts gain social media attention - such as likes & comments on Instagram. But it couldn't go further. The lack of motivation created bottlenecks; it stopped me from making more.
Families and friends address me as someone who can draw, and that's it. Bringing those artworks digitally led me to a whole new world. When you read people's comments and how they are ready to pay for your work, it feels like you've spent time on the right thing. That empowers me to continue working on 'the next artwork'. The latest collection - State of Mind, took me only a week to finish all three of them. It's an incredible pace I have never been able to unlock."
NFT-based artwork paves the way for many opportunities. NFTs like these aren’t necessarily attempting to sell the art itself, but it allows Heyun to prominently feature her work and name. The artwork represents her style and reflects what she feels about the surroundings. This Throbbing Desires Collection is one of her most impressive work.

If you can meet your younger version - the one who has no idea what NFT is, what would you say?
"I'd definitely tell her to dig into blockchain knowledge. And throw herself in as much community as she can. The power of community is splendid. The adoption of blockchain can possibly pioneer a new future. The sooner you know about it, the higher chance you get to forge ahead with your growth."
Some say NFTs protect artists by ensuring their ownership. Some think it's a trap to commercialize things easier. I asked for Heyun's opinion on this. And her answer was surprisingly soothing.
