Digital artists are flooding into the NFT (Non-fungible Tokens) art space with new creations. Are they trying to solve the problem of provenance of their work via the blockchain, receive continued royalties on their works post-sale or are there other motivations?
Tune in to the third episode of /pɒp/Asia with award-winning contemporary Chinese musician and the first to release a music NFT, Hanjin Tan, the co-creator of DADA and a pioneer in NFT art, Judy Mam, and renowned digital artist and UChicago Professor Jason Salavon.
These creators will share their works and discuss the realities of NFT and art; why some established artists may be hesitant about jumping into the crypto world while others are taking initial first steps to participate in the phenomenon, and how much of a difference NFT is making to the art world by upending established norms.
