Trym Ruud (b. 1998) from Bærum is the artist behind the NFT collection «Rude Boy’s». He started studying graphic design at Westerdals in 2018 and it was during his last semester, in January 2021, that he decided to launch ‘Rude Boy’s’ on Ethereum's blockchain.

A few weeks into the project, it began to capture international attention, and more and more collectors of crypto art flocked to the project. Each character represents different personalities, emotions and experiences Trym encounters in life. The characteristic figure design with the strong colors and subtle pop culture references fascinates both young children and older adults.
