Honouring one of Nick’s first print editions released back in 2014, this NFT is a nod to where it all began.
For the original edition, Nick reworked one of Van Gogh’s most famous self portraits, and in true Nick Smith style, pixalised the original image into 380 colour chips, adding a unique word associated to each colour chip below.
The ‘Van Gogh NFT’ will be a new digital version of the 2014 edition, with the same word-colour associations, but instead of a screen printed physical work, this piece will only exist as a digital file.
This NFT marks an interesting moment in art history, where old master meets crypto. Whilst this isn’t the first time Van Gogh’s work has been immortalised in digital form; from the animation film ‘Loving Vincent’ to the digital exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières in Paris.
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.
