Hello Steemit! My name is Audrey, and I have created this account on behalf of artist Nick Giamberdini, to share and discuss his artwork (and sometimes mine), and to find and support other artists as well. We are both new to Steemit, and to the world of Cryptocurrency in general, but we’ve heard a lot of really positive things about this platform, so we are looking forward to interacting with the community and learning as we go! Thus, with no further ado, please allow me to tell you a bit about Nick and his art!
Nick Giamberdini is a Pittsburgh-based artist who has some formal training from PTI, but is primarily self-taught, preferring the freedom of experimentation and the tried-and-true teachers, Trial and Error, to the rigid structure of classical techniques.
His style leans heavily toward impressionism, and while he does occasionally work with Marker, Pen & Ink, and Pencil, the majority of his work is Oil on Canvas. Finding inspiration in everything from daily life to comics and cinema to mythology, sports and more, his subject matter varies widely. His repertoire includes landscapes, animals, original characters, mythological figures, cryptids and monsters, pop culture, and ... well the list goes on, but I’ll let you see for yourselves as we go.
In addition to painting and other fine-arts, Nick is also highly skilled at building stained glass. He worked for years with Pittsburgh Stained Glass, repairing Tiffany windows in churches all over the Pittsburgh area. Now, working on a smaller scale, he builds sun-catchers, mirrors, and other decorative pieces, as creative and unique as the rest of his art.
We hope the community of artists and art lovers here will enjoy Nick’s work, and we are excited to discover where this new venture will take us! One of the best things we’ve heard about Steemit, however, is the diversity of content. So, while we’re definitely looking to share art and connect with other artists, we’re also looking forward to finding out what Steemit has to offer in regard to some of our other interests. We’d love to see what you all have to say about gaming, comics, travel, small business, and technology, just to name a few.
Nick, especially, has been a gamer and a comic collector his entire life. He’s been playing Magic the Gathering practically since it came out (I’ve only been playing for about 6-7 years), and he’s also a long-time veteran of several different RPGs like D&D and White Wolf, and miniature war-games, specifically Warhammer 40K (keep an eye out for some pictures of his painted miniatures!). Basically, we’re huge nerds with pretty broad horizons, and I hope this will be the perfect place to get into a little bit of everything!
Finally, I’d like to give a huge thank you to my awesome brother-in-law @blewitt who turned us on to Steemit in the first place. He’s been a great source of information and advice, and a huge help in the process of setting up this account. Even before signing up for Steemit, I’d read a few of his Steemit posts, and they’re awesome, so if you haven’t already, I highly recommend checking out the great content on his account!
That’s all for now, Steemians!
Thank you for reading, and we’ll see you next time!
