Who is Leonar Dede Vinci?
I have been living in Metaverses for almost from the beginning of the Internet.
But how? I have always used aliases. I have been creating characters. On social media, even from the first day until now on Facebook I have never used my real name. I deleted my first Twitter account in 2010 with 20k followers at that time. I have always created aliases, I have always destroyed them. I have separated the real and the matrix till now.
Before the rise of social media, I did the same.
But this NFT thing drives me to built an indestructible character: LDV. Even by myself.
Of course choosing the greatest man ever lived Leonardo Da Vinci’s name is common. After visiting Firenze, I really believed that he is the “one.” But there is a hidden message in it. “Dede" means grandfather in Turkish. As a 39 years old man (05/1982), I feel like a grandfather among the new generations. Yes, I am a Turkish man, wandered the world, returned to my homeland, living with three cats and lots of plants.
I am good at it. I am best at it actually. I will never bring my previous works to NFTverses. Never. Because it has always been a challenge, creating new characters, becoming a brand, creating a value.
My name is Uğur. In Turkish it has the meaning of “a charm or a talisman that brings good luck.”
I am a scientist at the first place. A biochemist, mastered in Nano-biotechnology, and an executive holding an MBA Degree. I was educated in Turkey and Spain (UAB).
I have been a classical & Flamenco guitarist from the age of 9. Lots of concerts, lots of students and masterclasses. I played on the stage with the grand maestros, like Jorge Cardoso. I met the greatest of all time Paco De Lucia and Paco Pena. Playing the guitar is the best thing I can do in my entire life. I am kinda virtuoso. But I have never posted a video on YouTube. Music must be “live” for me. If you come, I will play. Things change, maybe this habit will change because of NFTs.
Art? I started to oil paint in the mid 90’s. I switched to digital in the mid 2000’s. Film photography and digital photography was always there. Nowadays oil painting is maybe one or two in a year.
I always make my art with messages in them. I never draw a line because it looks cool, if there is no meaning, nothing will be there.
I will raise my art in NFTverse from ground zero. No previous works, no past. This will be a great challenge, a great game. Hell of a challenge!
If you know Trevanian, you can easily resolve my aim.
See you in another art!
