IT'S A JOURNEY by INA VARE

‘TIDES’ is the opening chapter of ‘IT’S A JOURNEY,’ an epic visual saga by video artist INA VARE that celebrates exploration, valour, and axe mastery. This first part features several GIF artworks, marking the journey’s beginning.

INA VARE is a seasoned analogue video and glitch artist with over a decade of experience and has been a part of the crypto art scene for over three years. Her work uniquely blends technical skill with poetic expression, often incorporating performance art.

In winter 2023, INA VARE debuted with an axe in her conceptual video artwork ‘BEAR SERENITY’. This piece was part of the ‘BITCHES, BUTCHES AND BEARS’ exhibition, curated by OONA and SamJ, and minted on the CampFire platform (Avalanche blockchain).

By December 2023, INA VARE repurposed footage from ‘BEAR SERENITY’ to create a meme artwork aligned with the #TEZPOLE trend, which she minted on the Tezos blockchain.

THE JOURNEY

INA VARE’s cross-chain project kicked off with the minting of ‘THE TIDE IS COMING’ on the Tezos blockchain on June 7, 2024. This single-edition NFT was auctioned off to much acclaim. Now, INA continues the saga on Foundation/Base with three new artworks that build on the original piece.

These three artworks depict the arrival of the main characters at the sea.

INA describes it as a sea of opportunity that is cold and salty. There’s not much to do here, so it’s a good idea to practice some axe moves in the calm and chilly air.

About Artist

INA VARE is a Latvian glitch and analogue video artist.
Her artistic journey stems from her innate technological curiosity, which crosses from the physical world of analogue to digital. Her creative energy has given her growing recognition in the CryptoArt movement. 

Her signature style has developed through her deep understanding of digital, VHS and circuit-bending tools and processes. By experimenting with retro-analogue video aesthetics, INA re-creates a nostalgic visual experience which reflects the depths of noise, error, and glitches. Her artistic narrative is balanced between sentimental and deeply personal matters ranging from complete abstraction to parody and the grotesque.
