Meet Gabriele aka @BORT.TV
by Anita Srikandi on Oct 14, 2022
We recently started a Web3 project called TIALS World where you are the designer, the investor and the change maker. It is the place where we merge creativity, community and sustainability together. With this we become not just a brand, but a sustainable fashion hub in web3 where we launch the next generation fashion creators and thought leader.
With that being said, I’m pleased to introduce you – Gabriele. Let’s find out a little more about him!
Tell me about yourself?
My name is Gabriele, and I was born in Belluno ( Italy ) in 1997. Belluno is a small town in the Dolomites, and it's famous because it was built by the Roman Empire. I started posting my shoots on IG, and I was influenced by the people traveling in these beautiful hotels and resorts.. so I decided for fun to reach out to some hotels. During the week, I work from 9 to 5, and on the weekends, I create content for these hotels for free. During the first lockdown, I thought about where my life could go. I decided to pursue photography as my main job.
How did you transition from web2 to web3?
In the second lockdown, I didn't have many brands to work with, so I thought of a way to make more money through my photography since I had already invested in crypto. NFT was the right road to follow.
When did you enter the art world? And how has the journey been so far?
I entered the space in February 2021 and quit because it was more 3D art of the PFP collection. I came back in October and didn't sell a piece until March. After the first, I got 4 sales in 5 days, plus I sold out and made many other sales. Keep building and creating connections every day became the main focus.
How do you keep the balance as an artist in space?
I am long-term in this world, so I try to curate every aspect daily. Building my community, helping photographers with problems daily, and organizing possible in-depth opportunities to shoot and create more NFT collections. In the end, I love to be in the NFT community.
What motivates you to create art?
Giving people the sensation and feeling of summer vibes while looking at my photography.
