Puzzles force your mind to think differently. They make you slow down. That’s a rare thing. We spend most of our time dealing with a never-ending list of things to get done. We rush to get to work. We rush to cook ourselves a meal. We rush to our screens to consume as much content as humanly possible. We all go so fast that we miss out on all the details.
Yet the moment you bring out a puzzle, that mindset gets flipped on its head. A puzzle is all about the details. Take any image from your life. A photo of your kids. A stunning landscape from your favorite national park. Maybe even something mundane like the street you live on. You break that into a 1000-piece puzzle, and suddenly your entire focus will shift. All the small things that you’d normally skip right over are suddenly in full view. The shapes, the colors, the shadows, the features… I could go on. All the little things that you wouldn’t normally take the time to appreciate are now getting the attention they deserve.
A puzzle might seem obvious, but in reality, it’s difficult to find something in our lives that can actually put a pause on our hyperactive minds. Most people don’t actually stop to smell the roses. But there is one thing that does slow us down — art.
Art is where the details truly matter. This is especially true for the ultra-talented anime artist Juha Ekman. His approach to art is meticulous, with every hand-drawn trait carefully crafted all the way down to their most basic elements. Every detail matters. Every line, every color, and everything in between. The result — truly beautiful art.
For Juha, this passion runs deep for anime art in particular. In his eyes, anime and manga are the most beautiful forms of art in the world. Anime style breaks the fundamentals of art and gives complete freedom to artists to create multi-layered expressions within a piece. It makes for truly endless possibilities. As an artist, you’re unbounded. You’re able to express anything and everything while still holding on to that aesthetically beautiful style. With anime art’s tendency to exaggerate the most beautiful of features — eyes, female figures, muscles, and the flow of hair — the resulting work is stunning. It’s simply undeniable.
This beauty is what Juha hopes to bring with his new collection, Painight. He aims to elevate and expand the possibilities in the PFP scene by bringing his extremely high standard of work to the community. Not many artists can match his quality and precision in this style. The works of this collection are visually stunning. Every detail comes together to form a unique artwork that could stand on its own.
His journey of creating the collection began soon after launching his Genesis collection on Solana. The idea was of his own inspiration, and this marked the start of his journey of creating super high-quality PFP art. He quickly grew a strong community around him, and they helped shape the direction of this follow-up collection, Painnight. This is what led him to the fantasy style featured in this collection. For months he directed his entire energy towards this project — the art, the lore, the worldbuilding. For a solo-creator, Juha was aiming high with his ambitions and he somehow managed it all.
The quality of the Painight collection pushes the boundaries for what PFP art can and maybe even should be. While there’s still room to expand the way PFP artworks are created, the next important step for Juha is to create unique Painight and Genesis holder value. Something that will yet again elevate the quality and value of owning a stunning NFT artwork. So when this collection arrives, don’t forget to stop and smell the roses. You don’t want to miss the details.
