HOFA is making history with their Matter & Form group show. The show is the first of its kind showcasing both traditional form and NFT artworks from some of the most prominent contemporary artists of their generation. Each artist has created a unique still or animated NFT that compliments the original piece. The NFTs will be available though three major marketplaces MakersPlace, Rarible and KnownOrigin. and the original pieces will be exhibited at HOFA Gallery London.
Matter & Form exhibition will showcase art works alongside NFTs by emerging and established artists: Gregory Siff, Jan Kaláb, Vladinsky, Zhuang Hong-Yi, Jason Sims, Romina Ressia, Katya Zvereva, Loribelle Spirovski, Bran Symondson, Mary Ronayne, Chris Lizarraga, Ilhwa Kim, Marie Soliman, Noman, Aleksandr P, Derrick Santini and Darian Mederos.
“Our new crypto-artworks will break new ground for collectible digital contemporary fine art. It’s part of our ongoing effort to diversify the options available for art investments while also welcoming a new and enthusiastic cohort of young, affluent investors.”
- Elio D'Anna, HOFA and ARTCELS Co-founder
Rarible is one of the top NFT marketplaces allowing digital artists and creators to issue and sell custom crypto assets that represent ownership in their digital work. Rarible is both a marketplace for those assets, as well as a distributed network built on Ethereum that enables their trade without a middleman. Rarible has a considerably more ambitious vision than merely becoming a platform for securing art and digital collectibles using blockchain. It is placing significant emphasis on creating an entirely autonomous platform and allowing its users to become the ones in charge of all the decisions for the platform.
MakersPlace's mission is to enable a vibrant and sustainable future for digital creativity. MakersPlace provides creators with the ability to protect and sell authentic and unique editions of their digital creations. MakersPlace enables creators and collectors to come together in one place; creators earn all the value they’ve created by selling at a dynamic price while collectors can participate, buying into exclusive products early in the process of creation. Authenticity and ownership of the artwork are tracked on the blockchain, so while the unique artworks move through collectors’ hands, the buyer has status as the official owner and the artist receives royalties with every resale.
