The popular NFT artist Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple teases a physical studio that will be an outlet for not just his artwork, but the entire digital art and NFT community.
Beeple posted a video of the construction of his massive new studio in Charleston, South Carolina, which appears to be housed in a remodeled warehouse.
In the video, we witness workmen tearing down walls and developing the space within the forthcoming Beeple Studio that will give exposure to the digital art community.
The NFT artist intends to hold exhibitions and find innovative ways to present NFT artwork for on-site viewing by real-world collectors.
Beeple believes that the creators must discover NEW approaches to attract collectors who have certainly heard of NFTs but don’t really “get it”.
The artist hopes that by demonstrating that digital artworks can be shared and admired in real life, people will realize that this medium also has the capacity to bring beauty, provoke thoughtful discussion, and truly move us.
“This is actually just the first half of what we are building, the next half (which is actually almost done now too) is where shit is gonna get REAL… MORE SOONS!!” Beeple tweeted.
Beeple is arguably the most famous NFT artist at the moment, and he has created waves in the industry with his stellar artwork. He caused a stir last year when he sold his NFT artwork “The First 5000 Days” for a record-breaking $69.3 million at a Christie’s auction making it the second most expensive NFT ever sold.
