All great art is personal. Through whatever medium an artist uses to communicate, they give up a piece of themselves for public viewing, which is no easy feat. Cheryl Faux, in her first NFT collection, (8.4872–13.2356), pulls this off effortlessly, giving the viewer access to her homeland of Sierra Leone with the unique perspective of both a native and a visitor. In this interview we spoke about the bravery it takes to make art, art’s ability to correct misconceptions, and why storytellers are important. With thoughtful responses to every question, Cheryl proves her roles as both a thinker and storyteller.
