• Artist Daniele Puppi enters the world of NFT

  • Italian artist Daniele Puppi has decided to enter the world of cryptocurrency art by placing NFT works on the Foundation’s platform.

    Titled Elektrum, the work has a base price of 10 ETH and is part of the series “Non-Euclidean Spaces”, which, as the author says, represents.

    “the hypothesis of a site-specific work imagined in complete freedom. These visions and ideas have not yet been realized because the necessary technology does not yet exist or there is not enough budget for the project. We are what we imagine.”

    Who is Daniel Puppy?

    Puppi graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome in 1996, and within a few years his work was exhibited all over the world, from Seoul to Paris, through Australia, England, Brazil, the United States, Argentina and elsewhere.

    In 2015, he participated in the prestigious Art Basel fair in Miami, thanks to which he was also featured in several articles in Vogue, Time Out Rolling Stone, Artribune, Sky Arte, Ansa and dozens of other important magazines around the world.

    Last June in Rome he held an exhibition curated by Valentino Catricalà on the theme of the pandemic, “works that transport the viewer to a sensory experience that reflects the emotions experienced in the last year”, as mentioned in a review by Artribune.

    Why NFTs

    Daniele Puppi, like many other “traditional” artists, fashion houses, auction houses, musicians, etc., are entering the realm of non-counterfeitable tokens this year.

    After Beeple’s record $69 million sale last March, NFTs are conquering all industries, from art to fashion, with non-fungible tokens set to generate over $10 billion in revenue in the third quarter of 2021 alone – those are staggering numbers.
