This is a portrait where I look wise.
My name is Geoffrey.
I am a french digital artist, born in 1993. (In Verdun, the City of World War I.)
Basically, I wasn’t meant to be an artist. I studied marketing to become a business developer.
But during my studies, I learnt Photoshop in my spare time. (Basically, it was just to edit photos that I incorporated into my PowerPoint presentations.)
At first I was really bad. Besides, I didn’t even think of becoming a graphic designer or an artist. I was just doing this unpretentious, for fun.
However, spending time to follow tutorials, to work on Photoshop … I ended up acquiring a good level.
So in 2018, after finishing my studies, I decided to share my knowledge. I created a French-speaking YouTube channel to teach people how to use Photoshop. (Called « Apprendre le Graphisme » – with about 80k followers now.)
I made it my main activity.
Besides that, I also got into digital painting.
What I like is to create “metaphysical” compositions, which challenge the mind, demonstrate a certain wit, question, or upset. (Sometimes tenderly, sometimes brutally.)
For a long time, I believed that I would never be able to do anything with my skills in the graphic arts, except to provide services for companies or have fun.
And then I discovered NFTs in December 2020.
I thought to myself: This is incredible!
For the first time, a technology can help my art to get value.
I took it as an opportunity to be well-known as an artist.
And since then, that’s what I’ve been trying to do …
I try to become a well-known artist, and I try to make my art to get value.
Will I make it? I don’t know.
However I am sure about this:
I am persevering, because I have only one thing to do with my life: to succeed.
