Basket's creative journey began in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he learned the value of creativity at a young age. As a child he sold his drawings and songs to his grandparents, nurturing his passion for graphic design and music. His love for simple yet powerful art led him to draw inspiration from skateboarding culture and rock posters of the 90’s and 2000’s.
Embracing simplicity and intentional lines, Basket's art embodies messages, movement, and culture, paying homage to the renowned Keith Haring, whose simple drawings delivered powerful messages of activism in the 80's.
In 2020, the trend of digital creation and ownership spread like wildfire across various blockchains. Basket found himself drawn to Solana, a platform where artists continue to push the boundaries of creation and ownership.
Besides being a talented artist on paper, Basket also has a knack for creating captivating music that resonates with listeners, even if they don't understand Spanish. His music takes you back to a nostalgic era, reminiscent of 90's toy-machines and VHS skate videos.
Basket shows how NFTs enable creators to express a unified identity across multiple artistic mediums.
