Beeple, the “Non-fungible token” artist, has exposed his physical artworks for the first time.
Very long queue and sky-high expectations for the first physical exposition of Beeple at the Jack Hanley Gallery in London.
Beeple is a digital artist known for introducing NFTs in the mainstream market, through the “Everyday” project: a large series of drawings and renderings published online every day, for more than 14 years.
The Gallery of Contemporary Art has previously had alerted London citizens on social media with a cryptic claim that read: “BUSINESS INSIGHT”.
It concerns about the business before than art: Beeple sells quotations of his artwork on NFT (the non-fungible token), depending on the points of view he can be considered a genius or either a great charlatan.
Beeple has requested to the Jack Hanley Gallery to not make any kind of advertisement; but the information has leaked with word-of-mouth that generated a strong echo, mostly because the artist promised a signed poster for the first 200 visitors.
