Taking the NFT World Tour: Part 9

Meet Danielle Weber

“NFTs will enable many artists to cut out the middle-man. On the subject of royalties I can not only see who buys my work, but where it goes and receive recognition for that work for years to come and retain close contact with my clients.” -Danielle Weber

Over the last two years, the world has changed thanks to the blockchain and the internet. The traditionally illiquid art market has united with the liquid cryptocurrency-holding public through the use of NFTs.

In this ten part series, we travel virtually to unique locations across the globe to meet individual creators using NFT technology.

In this installment, part nine (9) of our series, it is my pleasure to introduce you to our next artist, Danielle Weber from Australia!

An Inside Look with Danielle Weber

Meet Danielle Weber

“It’s an incredible gift to be able to communicate through my work.” -Danielle Weber

Location: Victoria, Australia

Danielle Weber is an Australian-based artist in Melbourne. Danielle’s work has extended to include original pieces for a number of high-profile clients and large-scale murals. More recently Danielle has embarked on her NFT journey, releasing three collections so far with an aim to bridge the gap between physical and digital art. Check out her website and Twitter here.

1. How and when did you get into art?

My career in art stems from growing up in an artistic, humorous, and creative family, with an abundance of encouragement and support. I loved to draw as a two-year-old as I used to look up to and copy my older brother. I then started watercolor painting at nine years old and oil/acrylic at 12.

2. What excites you to create?

Inspiring others, telling stories through my work, and connecting to audiences all over the world, from all walks of life. It’s an incredible gift to be able to communicate through my work.

3. What is the biggest barrier you face as an artist?

People not thinking that being an artist is a real job: having to explain that what I do is a viable profession with credibility and recognition. As much as it is a barrier, I love using this as fuel to inspire others and show creatives that we CAN break down the barriers and break the stigmas attached to us.

4. What do you consider your greatest accomplishment as an artist?

Purchasing my studio/warehouse after 10 years on this journey and receiving recognition for my accomplishments and works.

5. Who is one person living or dead you wish you could have lunch with?

I would love to have lunch with Oprah.

6. What is your favorite color and why?

Purple as it symbolizes wisdom, bravery, and spirituality.

7. What is your favorite movie?

7 Pounds.

8. If you could move to one place in the world, where would that be?

At the moment it would either be Croatia or Bali!

9. What do you think about crypto? Which one is your favorite?

Cardano is my favourite cryptocurrency. I love crypto and hold about 15 different coins. It is a fast and convenient way for my clients to make payments!

I also believe crypto IS already and will continue to play a pivotal role in closing the gap in third-world countries where corruption and control sadly still dictates their peoples’ freedom.

10. What new things have you been able to do since working with NFTs?

  • Build up my community in a different way.
  • The first time having a team!
  • NFT Melbourne community- experiencing this space with like-minded people in different ways i.e. events, etc.
  • Create more freely without any guidelines or brief to go off, purely my own concepts and meanings behind my painting.
  • Network with so many different people in so many different fields of work that are all connected to the NFT space in some way or another.
  • Push myself to grow in public speaking.

11. How do you feel NFTs will change the financial condition of artists and other creators over the next 10 years?

NFTs will enable many artists to cut out the middle-man. On the subject of royalties I can not only see who buys my work, but where it goes and receive recognition for that work for years to come and retain close contact with my clients.

For me, being able to bridge the gap of ‘traditional’ physical art and digital art: opening up so many doors and opportunities to expand business and ensure there are various income streams. This ultimately leads to the privilege to create freely and not work off restrictive commissions.
