(Re)Introducing Team mxtter
Since we launched mxtter last year, I’ve written extensively about our plans to create an experimental space for artists to collaborate and explore generative art, as well as supporting up & coming artists grow and amplify their stories.
If you’re new to mxtter — here’s the story so far:
- Our introduction in December 2020
- A recap of our Genesis season
- #ArtistSummer grants, our latest initiative
We launched as a project housed in the blockchain lab I co-founded. Since then, we’ve spun off as a full organization (with an attached DAO) and I’ve taken on a principal role with the aim of building a team to carry it forward.
I’m proud to announce we’ve brought together a fantastic team people who will help us continue to evolve the mission and vision of mxtter as an artist-led organization

AltJames — Creative Director, Season 1
James studied Fine Art (Painting) in London and subsequently became a graphic designer working freelance at some of London’d top branding agencies. in the mid 90s he became a web designer and helped create one of the UK’s first web design agencies. He then set up his own agency with global clients in Europe and the Americas.
Throughout this time he has continued to paint and make artworks but rarely exhibited. In the last few years Fine Art has once more become his focus, with a particular interest in those boundaries of traditional painting, drawing and digital art. He has since exhibited in France and the UK.
Whilst working with Swiss banking clients in late 2020 — developing brands for the fintech environment he began researching crypto art. In early 2021 he started a project involving 100 fine art pieces on a common template/theme which were created, minted and sold over 7 months on the ethereum blockchain.
