Digital Art Fair Asia Artist Spotlight — Derry Ainsworth

As the official NFT sponsor of Digital Art Fair Asia 2021, we want to highlight some of the best artists to showcase their incredible work at the upcoming festival.

Below is our first featured artist for a Q&A — Derry Ainsworth. Enjoy!

How did you find art? Or did art find you?

After graduating, I booked a one way flight to Asia with my camera. It was really on this trip I learnt how to use a camera. I was so inspired by the beautiful cities in Asia that I never came home, settling in Hong Kong where I live now and eventually quit my full time job in architecture to pursue art and photography full time.

So, why NFTs?

What is your medium and why?
