Itzel Yard, also known as IX Shells, is a self taught generative artist based in Panama, skilled in curatorial projects, creative concept design and experimental digital art.
IX Shells is an artist breaking new ground for women within the male-dominated NFT and generative art world.
She admits to spending most of her life at her computer, first with gaming, then through studying architectural technology and now with art. This has clearly influenced her creations and her ability to unite code, creativity and often music. Her work feels incredibly modern but meaningful, like it’s stamping its authority on this moment in history.
IX Shells has been creating digital art collections since February 2021. One of the most significant project in her career was creating the piece Dreaming AT Dusk in favor of Tor’s Project to support journalists, whistle-blowers and human rights defenders. This auction rocketed IX Shells to the forefront of female artists working in the NFT space.
IX Shells is a leading voice in the generative art movement, creating poetic visualizations of algorithms and experimental music. As co-founder of Creative Code Art, IX Shells is also a strong advocate for an entire community of artists who are pushing the boundaries of creative coding.
