💫Shooting Star

This week’s shooting star is Federico Clapis

Today’s art feature is a metaverse themed 3D digital art piece. The piece is named ‘Grieving Conceptions - Flooded’.

Federico Clapis is a visual Italian artist. In 2010, he began a inner journey to explore the most intimate conditions of the human soul, living in an ashram in India and continuing his research in the West through various existential paths.

For years, Clapis worked “undercover” producing viral videos on social networks and accumulating millions of followers and views. In 2015, at the height of his popularity, he decided to move away from pure entertainment and converted his online presence into a tool for the dissemination of his artistic works previously kept hidden.
