Grew Accustomed To More Fear by Laith Safa is inspired by Kendrick Lamar’s track FEAR. With this work, Laith invites the viewer to contemplate the resistance toward growing older and the anxiety that accompanies achieving success and reaching goals.
Grew Accustomed To More Fear represents the birth of Laith’s acclaimed collection, Experiences, based on the idea that we are made of layers. These layers – thoughts, emotions, and human relationships – are what empower us to continuously evolve.
Laith says, “this piece is intentionally angled so the figure looks down at us, but the idea is to project yourself onto this entity – to see your highest potential (which is the experience).”

Experiences is a style exploration and a concept on which Laith’s work builds. The underlying theme is: nothing is truly finished, we always have the opportunity to grow.
Laith continues, “regardless of our fear or experiences, everything is layered. We are not one-dimensional beings.”
Airdropped Spotlight Editions
Earlier this year, Laith delighted NFT collectors with his untitled limited edition debuted by Artifex Spotlights. It was airdropped to some lucky holders:
- Full Set Collectors
- 1/1 Artifex collectors
- Laith Safa collectors
A few editions have been retained for giveaways and for the Artifex vault.
