The NFT community is famous for entertaining emerging artists and creators. Vasjen Katro, known as Baugasm too, is an artist as well as an NFT enthusiast who helps other artists contribute to the NFT space. He does this through Skillshare.
By using Skillshare, Katro teaches graphic design tips to NFT artists. In his lessons, Katro teaches his students the way to use Photoshop, create posters, use Illustrator, and more.
Katro shares some of the techniques he uses to design his posters for his Baugasm project. Basically, Baugasm is a project began by Katro in mid-2016. He challenged himself via Baugasm to design a poster every day for one year. Via this self-improvement experiment, he can presently teach students to effectively design posters and abstract artworks.
Skillshare is an online learning platform. It basically enables interested people to learn new skills via instructional videos. Most courses concentrate on interaction instead of teaching, and the major goal of each course is to complete a project.
Established by Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, the platform has various categories, such as design, fashion, film, food, and music. All online courses are self-paced and taught by industry leaders. These are: Seth Godin (entrepreneurship), Gary Vaynerchuk (social media strategy), Yuko Shimizu (inking and drawing techniques), and Paula Scher (graphic design).
In 2021, sales of contemporary art reached $2.7 billion in annual sales. As reported by ArtPrice, the success of mainstream NFT projects has helped that figure. NFT sales considered for one third of online sales, or 2% of the art market. Besides, the NFT medium has produced nine 7-digit results so far. This is three times more than photography in the same time.
