I’m a self taught digital artist who makes dreamy art and am currently focusing on dark fantasy/chaotic art. I love daydreaming and making up stories in my head and then translate them into visual art form. “The Faces Collection” consists of my earliest artworks, where I expressed my frustrations, anger and happiness through embedding the element of art into faces, typically in a dreamy manner. For me, it is a form of expression, without facial features being shown. “CHAOS” is my current ongoing project. Unlike The Faces Collection, it’s fantasy art, which is story based. There’s no complicated hidden messages and symbolisms, just purely fantasies. I hate to impose meanings into my artworks, it is pointless and a complete waste of time. I want my viewers’ imagination to go wild, and that’s my ultimate goal. Go listen to music that triggers your creativity, and stare into my artworks (or other artists’ artworks), and never stop daydreaming. Immortalize your passion.

Hi, I’m Stellabelle and I’m an American artist and writer. My first OpenSea collection mostly consists of art made for my recent art exhibition in Cryptovoxels, “FRIDA”. 

I’ve been in the crypto space since 2016 and have been doing art for most of my adult life. In the early days of the internet I taught myself how to code websites and more recently, I wrote my first book, Un-Crap Your Life. I do animations frame by frame, and I enjoy exploring dark and ridiculous subjects. My art has been exhibited in several real life and virtual galleries.

I enjoy telling stories in my art and I cover a wide range of subjects, some very personal, others societal. I’m particularly drawn to depicting gruesome topics, as evidenced by one of my recent NFTs, Stellabelle Head on Tray, which I believe was the very first packaged artist head sold on the Ethereum blockchain. But my packaged head was more than just a cheap novelty. It represents my contradictory feelings about the commodification of creativity.

I think my tagline sums it up pretty well: write code // make cool shit. I try not to take myself too seriously, I’m just here to explore this exciting interface of my two passions, crypto and art. If I had to choose a category, I’d go with generative artist. I like to make abstract stills, animations, and interactive art through creative coding. Really I’m just trying to see what are the limits of digital art and how can I push those boundaries. You can find my latest work in high resolution via the PQ4K collection available only on OpenSea!






If you’d like to suggest an artist or put your collection forward for consideration, drop your OpenSea URL in the comments under this tweet. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t made any sales yet – we’re keen to spread the word about creators minting their first NFTs too!
