Artscapy has announced an exclusive NFT drop in collaboration with the Dalí Universe with world renowned surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, marking an exciting chapter in Artscapy’s mission to expose quality art to the current generation of collectors online.
The launch of the first collection of NFTs coincides with the exhibition of Dalí artworks, Spellbound – Scenografia di un Sogno (Scenography of a Dream), in Naples at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore Alla Pietrasanta on 13th April 2022.
Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is one of the most famous surrealist artists in art history, best known for his technical skill, precise draughtsmanship, and the striking dreamlike images in his work. He became known for breaking with conventions and forging his own new artistic language through his works in painting, sculpture and product and set design.
Artscapy has created a full NFT sales platform for Dalí Universe where collectors can buy the NFTs directly and is also supporting Dalí Universe in the creation of the NFTs, including the minting of the tokens. They will design authentic, limited edition, digital art productions of eight of Dalí’s iconic sculptures, which include Dance of Time III, Lady Godiva and Nobility of Time. The melted clock face is one of the artist’s most beloved motifs, representing the fluidity of time, and is incorporated in two of the works in the series on sale. Each of these NFT artworks will be an edition of 9,999 and will be sold at $30 (£23).
