“This Is A Call” Edition 1 of 1 I met Foo Fighters for the first time at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on July 20, 1995. A lifetime ago. I was 21 years old and had only been shooting concerts for a couple of years. That afternoon I nervously waited behind the venue with a few dozen fans, hoping to see the band when they arrived. Although Dave Grohl had been drumming in the biggest band on the planet less than a year and a half earlier, Foo Fighters were starting from scratch. And as such, they pulled up in a pretty ordinary, used, band van. Pat Smear got out first, opened the rear doors, and William Goldsmith who was fast asleep literally rolled out. He got to his feet and started hauling gear into the club with Nate and Pat. Dave was talking to a guy from the venue and fans just stood there staring at him. It was awkward. When they were done talking I impulsively walked up to him and said the first three words that came to me: “Hi. I’m Dustin”. “Hi! I’m Dave!” he replied. We shook hands and I told him I’d be shooting the show and hoped they’d be interested in seeing the pictures someday. He asked for my info and I handed him my card. “We’re playing near Seattle in a couple of days if you want to come hang out.” As for my time in the photo pit that night in Vancouver, I’ll never forget the feeling of Dave and Pat’s guitars ripping through my chest while they played This Is A Call. That show left a mark! Two days later I was in Bremerton, Washington and to my surprise there was an all access pass waiting for me at the ticket window. I walked into the empty venue before the doors opened and heard “Hey! You made it!” It was Dave and he had my card in his hand. “I told you I wouldn’t forget!”. I’ve since had the pleasure of working with Foo Fighters for over 25 years. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ve directly or indirectly played a part in some of the most incredible and memorable experiences of my career. Paul McCartney, Beastie Boys, Queens Of The Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Billy Talent, St Vincent. They’re are all people that I’ve been able to work with because of the three words uttered by this nervous kid in 1995. This photo can be seen in the documentary “Foo Fighters: Back and Forth” (2011). My favourite thing about it might be Pat’s socks. The initial owner of this NFT will also receive a special, animated version of the photo.

An acclaimed Medellín-based artist, growing up in Colombia in the 1980s had a profound influence on his work. In his physical and digital works, Restrepo communicates the psychological effects of living in a constant state both of internal and external violence. He is the creator of the NFT project “a ToN oF coke”, a response to the failed war on drugs that followed the bloody reign of Colombian cocaine traffickers, but in effect created more violence.
“Ideation 1/30” Edition 1 of 1 Moco’e Pavo is Camilo Restrepo’s illustrated and tormented alter ego and avatar. A pink humanoid sketch with a big nose, sharp teeth, and big green eyes permanently widened in hysteria, he is constantly committing gruesome acts against himself. Each violent action plays on a loop like, as Restrepo describes, “a disagreeable thought that refuses to vacate your head.” Through Moco’e Pavo, Restrepo unpacks, redirects, and mocks his anxieties and obsessive suicidal ideations.

“Recovery” Edition 1 of 1 There are a lot of things in life that we regret, and one by one, they become empty voids in our memories. In the meanwhile, we also get something from what we have lost, and the things we have learned eventually fill up the voids left behind. The cycle goes on and on.
Graceland is best known for brave, bold use of colour in her vibrant artworks which depict the darker side of human nature and consumption. Her art visualizes self obsession and displays self questioning quotes. Her style is predominantly contemporary and humorous, but subtly influenced by the historical religious symbolism in Italian Renaissance and Flemish art. She examines human consumption. She explores scenes of how us as human beings, consume vices in life to feed our inner egos.

“Back to Myself” Edition 1 of 1 Being perceived by others is a tiring task. To constantly present yourself a certain way – physically and emotionally – is draining. To reflect this, I drew an exhausted mermaid coming home from work to reveal that she is, in fact, a human. In order to find peace of mind, we mustn’t forego our true selves – the core of who we are.
