The story of Kaiko's tribe, Taher Jaoui's new and first collection of NFTs, which consists of 10 characters that represent a family with different ethnicities, extracted by the artist's paintings. His inspiration for the creation of this family comes from African masks and sculptures, but also from Western and contemporary cartoons.
The purpose, of the story of this tribe is to explore the universe where their last journey leads them into the world of mushrooms where they acquire powers.
The world of mushrooms has always been a source of inspiration for Taher Jaoui, fascinated by this species that is a link between nature and animals, a universe that the artist never ceases to inspire in his paintings, but also now in his NFTs that you can discover on the Opensea platform
The three sculptures “Button Head”, “Blue Barry” and “Hot Dog” are my first sculptures edition. So excited about this milestone.
We’ve been working since months on giving my work a new dimension.
The Believer, 2021
"The Believer" represents to date the synthesis of my scientific and artistic journey. Since my professional conversion from computer scientist and mathematician to artist, I have always wanted to explore different ways of mixing science and art.
At first, I started by integrating mathematical formulas and symbols compositions on canvas. Then I started to want to transform the work on canvas to a multidimensional work, and then to a 3D digital work. This has always seemed something natural to me, on one hand, because of my personal journey, and on the other hand, because of my deep conviction that all fields form a single interconnected whole.
These intimate feelings are often combined with a reflection on the evolution of humanity, in which I participate at my scale by leading to these physical and digital creations.
The last step has been to transform the digital work into a 3D animated video.
