Crypto art includes all forms of art that involve the digitisation of a physical work or the creation of a digital one. Thanks to blockchain systems, these animated frames become NFT (not-fungible tokens): masterpieces are linked to their own specific set of digital information certifying the authenticity of the work itself and guaranteeing the right of ownership for those who purchase it.

HACKATAO

Among the founders of this international movement, the only Italians are the duo Hackatao. Sergio and Nadia, a couple of artists working four-handed on physical paintings and sculptures as well as creating animations that can be enjoyed in augmented reality thanks to the artivive app. At the same time, they have started years ago dedicating themselves to the creation of digital works and this new artistic movement, named: crypto art.

 

ART NEVER DIES

Art will never die, at least until there will be an intelligent being creating it or enjoying it. New life is born from what has died and passed through: new art manifesting in new paradigms (Like the Cryptoart). The animated GIF of Art never Dies is connected through Augmented Reality with its original physical matrix on canvas, thus becoming the digital Doppelgänger. Art Never Dies on canvas appeared for the first time at our solo exhibition “THE TRUTH IS.” at Zanini Art Gallery – December 2019. Limited editions of 23, based on the original canvas artwork and produced by MoCDA as part of the “In The Studio” series curated by Eleonora Brizi, are presented for the first time at Cadaf Art Fair in Miami, 2019. Animated GIF 1200x1200px.

HACK THE BORDERS #228/284

Visual animation by Hackatao, music by Chris Stein of Blondie. This artwork is part of the project HACK THE BORDERS, an artistic collaboration between pioneer crypto artist duo Hackatao and Chris Stein + Debbie Harry of the legendary punk rock band BLONDIE. “Hack the Borders” itself symbolizes a true act, from both Hackatao and Blondie, of hacking all borders and boundaries, and ultimately the limits of narrow-mindedness. The Debbie by Hackatao appears like a Podmork, the totemic creatures signed by the artist duo, covered in drawings that often represent our inner demons and most hidden voices. Debbie, like art, is eternal. She carries on the conversation that she started a long time ago, keeping her legendary charisma while opening our eyes to new subjects that never betray the loyalty to her own essence: “Stop fucking the planet”. The palette and the play of colors are inspired by the famous portrait by Andy Warhol, as a symbol of that fil rouge that exists here in the timeless nature of art. Debbie, portrayed in the ’80s and Debbie portrayed today, both in the most contemporary and the most pop way that the world has ever known.

GIOVANNI MOTTA 

He has made his subject par excellence, Jonny Boy, the protagonist of suggestive animated frames.

 

GAME OVER

Man is nothing but a toy that the gods enjoy creating, and as such it is through play that he must lead his life, so as to imitate and ingratiate himself with the gods. Run Jonny, jump Jonny and never stop.

RENZO NUCARA 

Monky The Monkey, who was born for his Time Machine Infinite Monkey project, has ‘grown’ over time, becoming the irreverent spokesman of an apparent normality. Thanks to him, the context becomes paradoxical and transforms apathy in the face of anthropisation into an adjustment incorporated into the system.

THE CHALLENGE

mp4 46MB – physical art or virtual art? perhaps the right statement would be “physical art & virtual art”! do not you think? (nft based on
original artwork on canvas 75×125, digital print 2021).
