CURATED BY FANNY LAKOUBAY
Artist, sculptor and animator, Angie Taylor is the first Crypto Artist featured on CryptoArt Monograph.
This very first monograph, carefully curated by Crypto Art Curator Fanny Lakoubay, is a window into Angie Taylor’s Creative World, where her work juxtaposes a DIY, Punk ethic, and fresh immediacy of Naive Art, with the complexity of 3D digital technology. Angie Taylor’s work champions the misfits in society.
Her experimental and exploratory approach is applied forcefully in digital practice, within which she finds her Nirvana of creativity into the world of Crypto Art.
The artist: Angie Taylor
Artist, sculptor & animator, Angie Taylor originally studied sculpture in early 80s. She became an animator, illustrator & Adobe demo artist in the 90’s, before ditching it all to follow her art. She creates immersive VR and AR projects, digital sculpture, illustration & animation.
Her current creative process begins in VR where she models 3D characters and scenes. These are hand-painted and textured on iPad before being rendered in desktop 3D software.
Her work explores themes of identity, isolation and otherness – often championing life’s misfits and highlighting the struggles faced by them. Her highly-distinctive style is hard to pin down but has been described by some as Punk-Expressionism – a unique mix of punk art, naive art, pop art and expressionistic aesthetics and themes. She also explores her own challenges with neurodiversity.
Angie has been a punk since 1976 & digital artist since 1987.
The cover: Thanatophobia
Ever since I was born,
I’ve been afraid of dying.
Anxiety hinders me . . .
prevents me from living life “to the full”
(whatever that means)
It’s not that I fear death.
I look forward to the peace.
In times of terror,
I think to myself,
ah well . . .
there’s always death to look forward to!
An end to the constant worry?
Not knowing how it will happen,
That’s what troubles me.
But the kind face of fear drives me to my art.
That’s where I find peace.
I am no longer afraid.

The time has come to tell the great Crypto Artists, their history, their artistic research, their digital works of art, and the platforms and metaverses where they operate.
The CryptoArt Monograph series by The NFT Magazine was created in collaboration with the most important and visionary curators to narrate and “timestamp” the evolution of Crypto Art to the present day over time.
Why Crypto Art Monograph was born
After the great international success of the book “CRYPTO ART BEGINS” born on an idea and project by The NFT Magazine, published by Rizzoli, we have decided to continue the work of research and curatorship on the world of Crypto Art, yet to be discovered.
Thanks to “Crypto Art Monograph” we reveal every month the great protagonists of the digital art scene in the WEB3.
