A Peak into the Artists’ Creative Minds
The iconic digital creator XCOPY will headline “Beyond the Screen”, showcasing thought-provoking masterpieces that dig into the effects of technology and society. One of his most significant achievements includes creating the iconic piece “A Coin for the Ferryman,” an NFT project that fetched a whopping $6.02 million (1330 ETH) in 2021.
Presenting alongside XCOPY is OSF, (Ovie Faruq), the founder of Degenz, an NFT hub that builds knowledge through educational resources around the Web3 arena, which is one of the fastest-growing communities in the NFT space. As a result, it has attracted the attention of Raoul Pal, Cozomo Medici, and Snoop Dogg. On top of that, OSF creates crazy artwork for the famous Rektguy NFT project, which consists of flashing, neon-colored digital images, which are well-accepted in the sphere.
Orkhan is another media artist who finds contemporary cultural transformations intriguing. As such, he continuously plays around with different techniques, aesthetics, and dynamic perceptions. Using patterns and carpet illustrations as a data set, he generates art and artificial intelligence to create his artworks. One of his most famous pieces includes “Eastern Promises“, which sold for $80,000 (50 ETH) at Art Dubai.
Canadian-born photographer and Sony ambassador, Cath Simard, is another talent showcasing her digital art. She is a central figure in the NFT world, blending reality and imagination in landscape photographs, entirely focusing her work on NFTs. She best takes images when alone in the mountains. By doing so, she creates digital artworks that sell for $300k alone.
All artists, as well as Alpha Centauri Kid, DeeKay, Gavin Shapiro, Ivona Tau, and 25m42, will present contrasting art pieces, varying from cartoon animation projects to gothic-styled sculptures.
When delving through all the images set to showcase at HOFA, it’s clear that anything is possible via blockchain-based art.
