A digital progression of an original New York cityscape painting, created with mixed media on aluminium sheet. Times Square, Manhattan, portrayed as an endless, looping vision of the progression of time, interwoven with the ever increasing pervasiveness of cryptocurrency.
To create this NYC piece, the physical oil painting was digitised using a Leica M (Type 240) rangefinder camera, paired with the Leica Summilux-M 1:1.4/35 lens for superlative colour depth and image quality, preserving the tones and textures of the source painting. The composite images were then enhanced and expanded upon through digital manipulation and motion to create the final NFT.
