In conversation with Lucas Aguirre

In this episode of Fakewhale Live, host Jesse Draxler chats with Argentinian digital artist Lucas Aguirre.

The discussion focuses on Lucas’ artistic and creative process, as well as how he has used 3D modeling and VR to inform his use of photogrammetry more often, as it provides more freedom.

In particular, he shares how he uses digital and physical models to create sketches for paintings and for collaging over with 3D models, and the importance of skill and practice in art.

As the conversation continues, Lucas shares how he uses both photogrammetry and drawing to create new and different pieces and how he believes that photogrammetry is an evolution of photography and a way to see technology in a more visceral way.

A special emphasis is placed on how this type of photography captures a moment in all its dimensionality.

Jesse and Lucas conclude the conversation by discussing the importance of art in society and creating for everyone, regardless of economic status.

Before the economic crisis hit, Lucas worked for galleries in Argentina, to then gradually became interested in crypto, and from there enter the crypto-art scene. 

Jesse Draxler is an LA-based artist working in mixed media and digital formats to create deconstructed, distorted images.
