Katy Arrington

Katy Arrington is a well-known illustrator and digital painter based in Jakarta, Indonesia. She has gained a massive following for her anime style characters who vary in style from cute and kawaii, to eerie and evil. Some of her most popular work seeks to bring these characters into the world of crypto, by incorporating various coins into her characters’ personas.

Arrington’s artwork speaks to themes of empowerment and fully embracing femininity. Her artwork is bright, vivid, sensual and full of life with each one containing a plethora of bold colors and undeniable personality. Arrington is inspired by the many forms of anime art from Kawaii (Japanese cuteness culture), to the beautiful and strange. Her works can be described as everything from beautiful, strange, cute, creepy, joyous and even twisted.

Notable Sales

Since her arrival into the crypto art scene during it’s early days a few years ago, Arrington has developed a reputation for artworks that sell out moments after release, for record prices. Examples of this include her Fruit Girls series, of which the fixed price edition artworks sold out within seconds and in total brought in an accumulated total of $7,493. Editions of two artworks from the series were originally priced at ~$355 and were recently resold for $1,846 (+ 420%), with a secondary sale baseline of over $1K per edition. Katy’s showcase 1/1 of the same Fruit Girls series sold for 13ETH ($5,776 at the time).

Bull vs. Bear

“I hope with these characters, the audience can relate to one or both of these characters and feel like they are fighting for what they believe in. The main piece, however, represents the balance of the market and I want to leave the audience with suspense.”

In the Bull vs. Bear series, Arrington introduces two new characters Bull-san and Bear-chan, who represent two opposing forces in the financial market. Reminiscent of the “select screen” found in video games, two artworks act as introductions to each character while the third, showcase creation, presents the two characters in an epic showdown, with weapons blazing and magic revealed.
