4. “Cats in the Temples” by Jeff Roland
Bringing my Art in soft sketches into Naime’s work was a pleasure. Cats are known to love temples and with a digital manipulation I harmonized both our styles in a resulting piece that brings even more magic.
Jeff Roland Born in France in 1969, he is a prominent Neo Outsider artist. Having co-created the movement, Jeff creates bold, colorful personal pieces, which reflect a constant desire to explore the human psyche. His paintings are not limited to a dualistic world view. The artist firmly believes that between the two most extreme points there are many universes and infinite possibilities.

6. “I Love NFT” by DR
“I love NFT,” it is a poster for the beautiful work, “Temple of Heaven” by the talented artist, Naime. As the title shows, it is about the love for NFT. In this artwork, a cartoon character, wearing an “I love NFT” t-shirt, is taking a selfie with Naime’s artwork at an exhibition. The contrast between the image, the title of the artwork, and the character of the devil represents the character’s love for NFT and Naime’s work. In summary, the love for NFT and Naime’s artwork compels the devil character to take a selfie with conflicting concepts.
