GAZELL.iO is pleased to announce our August artist in residence, Coldie, in the framework of GAZELL.iO’s partnership with NFT platform Async Art.
Coldie is an award-winning mixed media artist whose stereoscopic 3D art has been featured in national juried art exhibitions, cryptocurrency conferences and live auctions. His blockchain themed artwork gives a personalized visual representation of the disruptive industry. Coldie is the first artist to tokenize stereoscopic 3D art and photography on the blockchain. The artist has recently been breaking through in the traditional art world with record-breaking sales for his single edition NFTs.
Throughout his residency at GAZELL.iO, Coldie will be showing his works spanning his career, highlighting the variety of mediums the artist works in - animation, virtual reality and physical mixed media collage. Coldie’s aim is to express the multifaceted nature of digital art and the NFT space with the endless opportunities of creativity the cryptoart community supports. In his own words the NFT space is one where you can ‘let your freak flag fly’, and he wants to convey this during his residency.
Coldie’s residency coincides with Gazell.io’s partnership with Async Art - a unique and first-of-its-kind platform that allows artists to program their digital artworks as well as enable multiple artists to collaborate together to produce one single work tokenized on the blockchain.
Five artists were selected from past GAZELL.iO residencies to create a collaborative piece of programmable artwork, that will change with a user’s blockchain inputs, and list it for sale on Async. Artists Evelyn Bencicova, Mark Farid, Alexander Reben, Matteo Zamagni and Shi Zheng will be working together throughout August until the completion of the final work. Each layer of the artwork will be certified by Verisart.
“The partnership with Async and Coldie’s residency shows GAZELL.iO’s commitment to digital art both in the NFT community and in the traditional art world. We are looking forward to seeing where this can take us”, says Mila Askarova, Founder of GAZELL.iO/Gazelli Art House.
The final NFT created on Async will be exhibited for one night at Gazelli Art House, on September 14th from 6-8pm where all local contributing artists, and the London Async team will commemorate the collaboration.
