What is an NFT?
The three works of art presented here are so-called NFTs, Non-fungible tokens, which is a special type of crypto technology used in the sale and ownership of digital art. Each token is a unique part of a blockchain and creates a “digital fingerprint”. Unlike other cryptocurrencies where each token is equivalent to another, an NFT is not interchangeable, ie “non-fungible”.
The artist and his first NFTs
Andreas Olofsson Tarantino is an artist from Malmö. He uses acrylic paint and large canvases to create his abstract art. In the creative process, he often starts with one specific idea. But based on daily form, mood, and emotions, that idea can take many different directions before the last brushstroke is done. This is the first time that Andreas’ art can be bought digitally. And of course, he hopes that many want to be involved and place a bid for his three pieces, as the money goes to a very good cause.
