What do you get when you combine great food and rare digital food art? On the 20th of June, MakersPlace hosted a truly rare event that captured just that… a Rare Digital Art Feast for the mind and body.
At MakersPlace our mission is to enable a vibrant future for digital creativity, by empowering creatives with the ability to sell truly unique digital creations (i.e Rare Digital Art), to be collected by their fans. The event showcased one-of-a-kind, food-centric digital artworks by our community including: Joe Chiappetta, Jarid Scott, Luis Buenaventura, Risto Kutt, Floortje Visser, Alexander Van Glitch, Cosme, All in a GIF, Punk_Rock_Edit, Ruffensteint, Jonathan Pritchard, Salvatore Rapisarda, Skeenee, Passione43 and Maximillian Piras.
Digital Art in its Native Form
All digital artworks were displayed on digital devices to showcase each artwork in its true form, as intended by the creator. Unlike its physical counterpart, a digital artwork incorporates digital technologies and techniques to deliver a unique and captivating experience. An experience most attendees witnessed for the first time.
Industry-leading Thoughts on Rare Digital Art
The event also featured Joe Chiappetta, a pioneer in the rare digital art movement, who has created and sold rare digital artworks on a multitude of platforms since 2015. He’s also a prolific writer on the topic of blockchain and art. Joe shared his unique insights and excitement for this new art movement.

The talk was followed by a deeper discussion on the present and future of rare digital art, alongside three industry veterans including Matt Condon of DigitallyRare, Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt of Blockchain.Art and Dannie Chu of MakersPlace.
Finally, to end the evening we showcased three artworks that were auctioned live and purchased by first-time collectors of rare digital art. Congratulations to the new proud owners of the following artworks.

The Rare Digital Art movement!
The level of intrigue and excitement in the room was infectious and we’re super excited to be at the forefront of this new movement towards a brighter future for digital artists and digital creativity. We’ll steal a line from Joe Chiappetta when we say that we’re entering a new era that may one-day be called “blockchain-ism”. Whether you’re a creator or an interested collector in the space, this is the time to make your mark on this movement and be a part of history in the making.
