1. Bjorn Calleja at Art Basel Hong Kong
The art of multi-disciplinary creator Bjorn Calleja goes to Art Basel Hong Kong, to be exhibited by blockchain firm TZ APAC and Art Basel from May 27 to 29. Calleja will be part of over 20 contemporary digital artists from around the world to be featured in the said exhibition which is a first-of-its-kind interactive NFT gallery experience.
In line with this year’s theme of ‘NFTs + the Ever-Evolving World of Art’, Katherine Ng, head of marketing and operations at TZ APAC, mentioned that TZ APAC is “excited to showcase especially innovative works that point to NFTs and their limitlessness as a medium, empowering artists as it redefines the scope and scale of today’s art world in the digital age.”
“I think as a contemporary artist minting NFTs, the value should exceed utility and marketing gimmicks, nothing against them but I understand that it’s a long game and there is more to Art than these tangibles,” Calleja’s remarks on NFTs, which are unique digital assets on the blockchain.
