“I’m looking forward to revealing the next levels of the art world,” those were the first words out of the mouth of Raphael, a 22-year-old entrepreneur, DJ, musician, creative artist, and visionary who along with his luxury art company, AR Studios are poised to change the face of art.
“AR Studios represents the new wave of technology and art. I am grateful to work with the legendary Jay Cash, who has worked with Amazon, Kobe Bryant, HBO, and the GRAMMYs.” He went on to add that “Art is transforming as we know it, and AR Studios are utilizing technology and mixed reality to bring art to the masses, and changing the industry as you know it.” Raphael states confidently with a smile.
When asked what is “Mixed Reality”, the Californian visionary explains that
Mixed Reality is a blend of physical and digital worlds, it unlocks the links between human, computer, and environment interaction. This new reality is based on advancements in computer vision, graphical processing power, display technology, and input systems. In other words, Jay and myself are bringing the future of art to everybody, through our company AR Studios. We are just getting started, and this is the first time we are talking to the press about this.
Griffin continued about his exposure to art by chronicling his first exposure to the field “I first met Jay when I was taking CGI classes through an amazing program called “Reel People”, and Jay told me and the other students that what we were about to learn is highly advanced art techniques. I had the honor of learning CGI from a legend, and I’m grateful to work with Jay and bring our visions to the art world.”
On the next steps his company would be taking, Griffing had this to say:
I’m looking forward to my company, AR Studios’ highly anticipated Cryptoart releases. Cryptoart is a way of introducing scarcity and value to art in digital form. Imagine: Picasso paints a canvas and signs it. Because it is scarce and unique, this canvas is worth millions. Meanwhile, the same image recreated as a limited-edition fine art print is less valuable, a postcard in the gift shop even less, and endless reproductions of the image on the internet obtainable for free. CryptoArt are rare digital artworks, sometimes described as digital trading cards or “rares”, associated with unique and provably rare tokens that exist on the blockchain. The concept is based on the idea of digital scarcity, which allows you to buy, sell, and trade digital goods as if they were physical goods. This system works due to the fact that like Bitcoins and other cryptocurrency, CryptoArt exist in limited quantity.
