Following the huge interest in the art NFTs (non fungible tokens) at the beginning of 2021, the field is undergoing a natural evolution and transformation. The internet, social networks and forums have been flooded with NFT artists, collectors and resellers. The huge sums of money and earnings have twisted the minds of the majority and probably a large part of this majority is disappointed not to have found their Eldorado. Success comes to those who persevere.
After a successful NFThon exhibition in the framework of Kaunas, European Capital of Culture 2022 co-curated in the Summer 2022 by multimedia artist/organiser Gleb Divov, this exhibition presents NFT works by both widely known creators in Lithuania and creators known only in the narrow communities of NFT art collectors, as well as by technological innovators and visionaries, and by creators who just experiment.
The exhibition features the first Lithuanian NFT created in 2019 by Musical Blockchain – Messier 87 black hole Sonic Process z0238rt (in the Picotech collection, the teletext version is in the permanent collection of some of Museums of Modern Art in Europe), as well as the works of Robertas Narkaus (in the collection of the Lewben Art Foundation), Andrius Zakarauskas, Lukas Gecevicius, Ivona Tau, Greta Brat, Henrikas Rishkaus, and the winners of the NFThon Kaunas 2022, and others.
