The London-based digital artist XCOPY was an early pioneer of GIF art via the websites Giphy and Tumblr but today is most widely known as an early adopter of crypto art, having been invited to participate in the launch of the SuperRare marketplace in 2018. His neon-colored illustrated GIFs are instantly recognizable for their dark, punk-inspired themes of apathy and dystopia and the distorting “glitch” elements and visual loops which, due to their low frame rate, move and vibrate with a frenetic energy that brings the images to life on screen. One of XCOPY’s very first NFTs, only his 17th mint, Departed shows a monstrous being with multiple eyes that stares out at the viewer. On either side, ominous dark strokes bring to mind the depths of a forest but the flickering static of the background places the creature firmly within the digital realm.
