Gaël Fragne is a 28 years old self-taught 3D artist living in France. He currently works as a full-time energy engineer and does daily renders at night.
When did you first start creating New Media Art?
I started learning 3D in November 2019 as I was unemployed. I started to feel the need to learn something new, something completely different from what I had learned during my studies. I was already following a crazy good 3D artist on Instagram and I wanted to do my own stuff.
How would you describe your artwork?
I think the hardest part after getting used to all the 3D software out there, is to find your own and recognizable style. I am still working on that. So far, I love to create abstract and surreal renders by using reflective and specular materials.
My biggest inspiration that led me to really dive into 3D art is @fvckrender as he was a skate buddy of one of my friends.
What drives your spirit and keeps you creative?
As I am doing daily renders I am always excited about my next piece of art.
I don’t plan anything and I don’t have a batch of already done 3D artworks to post If I ever feel like not doing one that day. I try to be inspired by almost anything in life and I don’t wanna be stuck in any particular style.
Have you been featured in any exhibitions?
Not yet as I am relatively new in the 3D world but one of the things I am the most excited about is the crypto art gallery. Definitely one of my biggest goal for 2021.
What’s the biggest challenge that you’ve met so far while creating art?
Dealing with the creative block is quite hard especially when you are doing daily renders. But as a matter of fact, even if you find that the render you did that particular day sucks, there will always be people that will like it so that’s fine.
Also, the fact that there are so many crazy good artists out there can be a bit depressive as you are tempted to compare yourself with them.
The only person you should compare yourself to is you.
