Everything you need to know about Art Blocks Curated NFT Project

Several investors believe that the merging of art pieces into the crypto-space in the form of non-fungible tokens will increase the growth potential of art pieces (NFTs). It’s now possible to buy various digital art pieces with cryptocurrency. Art Blocks NFTs, a shared platform for creators and curators, is one such collection. Art Blocks has a vast variety of Curated projects

What is an Art Block?

Art Blocks is a first-of-its-kind marketplace for truly programmable on-demand generative material that is immutably stored on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Snowfro, an artist and technologist, founded Art Blocks in 2020 and launched it with the release of his instantly recognisable Chromie Squiggles, a maximum set of 10,000 randomly generated, variously rare—and, in some cases, near-priceless—charmingly inscrutable squiggly lines of bright saturated colours on pure white.

Curated, Playground, and Factory are the three categories of projects available on the Art Blocks platform.

What are Curated Art Blocks?

Art Blocks developed a curation board to ensure that the work included in the “official” curated collection is the finest representation of the platform’s mission.  

Art Blocks Curated was created by Art Blocks Inc. It was founded in 2021 and is based in Texas, United States.

These initiatives are personally examined and contributed to something special to the larger body of curated content. Each quarter here presents a new batch of curated projects.

Art Blocks Curated is the most thoroughly curated offering in the Art Blocks product series. Individual artists or groups submit work, which is then assessed and approved by the curation board before being made public.

These incredibly imaginative publications by prominent artists reflect amazing beauty and innovation, both artistically and technically.

Art Blocks curated projects are issued on a schedule that allows collectors to build a considerable collection of generated work in a manageable amount of time.  

Where can you buy these Curated Art Blocks?

Collectors can buy Most of the Curated Art Blocks on the NFT marketplace OpenSea. It also has NFTs of other projects of the ART Block. 

Recently Britain’s Famous Auction House announced that it has added them in its Upcoming auction : Post-War to Present NFTs .

The current lot includes entire sets 1, 2, and 3 of Art Blocks Curated, 2020-2021—totalling 31 NFTs—from Barcella’s collection in Toronto, Canada.

The Blocks of Art #19

Art Blocks are the focus of this project. Each block panel is a little generative art piece with numerous random settings that has its own life while also contributing to the overall composition. This represents generative artists who are unified by the concept of ArtBlocks. Each piece of artwork contains a letter from the term ART BLOCKS. 

A collector who has all nine letters becomes a member of The Blocks of Art Club, which allows them to do a free mint of Shvembldr’s projects on Artblocks Playground for a year before the official release, among other benefits.

30. Dreams

Dreams #420

Each Dreams’ iteration is distinct, with properties specified by the hash generated at the time of transaction. 

Joshua Bagley created this dreamy collection. All 700 in this collection are minted. Till now the most expensive NFT of this project is Dreams #28 sold for 28 ETH.

31. CENTURY

CENTURY #140

CENTURY is a tribute to the paintings and drawings from the twentieth century. From the beginnings of concrete and non-objective art to color-field painting and minimalism, the references are extensive.

Ellsworth Kelly’s series of paintings from the 1950s, in which he chopped his works into pieces and reassembled them in different orders, is the most direct reference.

By just pressing the ‘1′ key on your keyboard, CENTURY creates a unique picture for each unique transaction hash, which one may “cut” and “reassemble” in various ways. To return the slices to their original order, press ‘2′. These are landscapes, and they look best when they’re big and moving.

Casey REAS is the creator of this thoughtful collection. All 1000 are minted in this collection. Till now the most expensive NFT of this project is CENTURY #304 sold for 75 ETH

Most expensive Art Block Curated ever sold

The most expensive NFT of Art Block Curated was the “Ringers #109 NFT” priced at 2100 ETH.

Dmitri Cherniak, an artist, developed this. It was sold in a secondary market sale on the OpenSea marketplace platform on October 4th for 1800 ETH (about $7 million).

The buyer was Three Arrows Capital, a bitcoin investing firm. This was the most money ever spent on an Art Blocks piece, with the previous high of 1000 ether (about $2.6 million). It even broke the previous record for a single Ringers piece, which was 500 ether (about $1.6 million).

Conclusion

Finally, on ending notes I want to say that curated projects should be your first stop if you’re a newbie to the Art Blocks platform. Not only top curated sets hand-picked by the Art Blocks team can be found here but also each piece of artwork is thoroughly examined before being accepted.

It’s all worth it, though! Each handpicked collection highlights a different aspect of Art Blocks’ worldview. So, choose wisely to make the most out of it.
