TheOtherAvatars, the new NFT collection by Saatchi Art
Updated: Mar 9, 2022
I'm very happy to be part of this incredible digital art project curated by Saatchi Art.
The Other Avatars is the first of its kind and a project that only Saatchi Art could make a reality: a series of handmade, originally-designed, and stylistically-varied avatars created by an international collective of hundreds of artists selected by our curators.
For the project, each participating artist will create 10 to 20 unique avatars inspired by the self-portraits of renowned Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. While today Van Gogh is considered one of the most influential figures in Western art history, during his lifetime he saw relatively little commercial success. His story is emblematic of so many artists and creative thinkers whose visionary approaches—while under appreciated in the moment—turn out to be ahead of their time. The NFT landscape occupies a similar position: while many think NFTs are a passing fad to be ignored, others—including the team at Saatchi Art—believe they will play a major role in the future of art.
