Nick Smith created ‘Girl With The Pink Earring’ in 2015. The edition of 100 was inspired by his first solo show ‘Psycolourgy’ which saw a collection of old master paintings reworked as colour-chip collages. This show saw Nick push this experimental concept and his impressive colour-theory skill to new levels, producing his own coloured chips and ascribing individual words he associated with that colour. Nick further injected his own unique signature to the famous work, by giving Vermeer’s girl a pink earring.
Now 6 years on, Nick is revisiting this famous panting by Johannes Vermeer, transforming the dutch portrait into an NFT digital print. The evolution of this famous work continues…
Each purchase will include a high-resolution copy of the image along with a certificate of authenticity.
With the pixelated and almost mechanical precision of Nick Smith's work, it feels like an NFT was a natural next step for the artist who explores art and culture through a pixelated, digital, lens. As a contemporary artist committed to experimenting with new forms and techniques, Nick Smith is excited to announce 3 newly released images as NFT's based on his hugely popular sold out printed editions inspired from his 2015 Psycolourgy series.
These images were the very first editions Smith released in his familiar ‘colour chip’ style. In offering these images as NFT’s, this newly granted opportunity presents the chance to rework his classics for a new digital audience. It reaffirms the image as timeless; it’s journey from old master to contemporary art and now to digital art.
The release of these 3 images, Van Gogh, Mona Lisa & Girl With A Pink Earring offers collectors the chance to own a virtually unobtainable image with the printed editions scarcely seen on the market.
