Victoria Fard is a Canadian-based artist who merges architecture, fine art and digital fabrication to create ethereal settings that explore themes of nature, culture and heritage. In the past, his work has been shown at Art Basel Miami, Frieze Los Angeles and in galleries across North America and Europe.
Made in collaboration with 1stDibs, Fard has released AETHERIUS, a collection of new NFT digital artworks that are algorithmically shaped by faceted terrain and kaleidoscopic vegetation. “I imagine the abundance and tranquility that nature brings. Despite its vibrant surroundings, it is a place of reflection and solitude,” the artist said in a statement.
Similar to his earlier studies, which are deeply inspired by Fard’s Persian and Filipino heritage, there is a noticeable floral motif that runs through each of his hypnotic settings. The development of AETHERIUS took five months and consists of 50,000 meshes and 25 GB of production data.
AIR, TERRA and AQUA from the AETHERIUS collection are all unique editions and are available to bid on 1stdibs for 7,188.95 USD, respectively.
