💥 UPCOMING DROP: Matt Kane
Very excited to announce the upcoming drop from Matt Kane titled “Architects of the Future” — Launching exclusively on SuperRare next Thursday April 16th at 1pm.
“Lately, I’m reflecting on what makes our cyptoart space and NFT technology meaningful in the context of this global pandemic. I’m thinking about the way of life we’re leaving behind and our post-quarantine futures. My strategy for art making is not to dwell in destruction or despair, but busy myself in what needs building for when the world becomes ready.
I believe humanity will emerge with greater capacity for compassion and a reverence for the interconnected system we are. In my latest work, I update antiquated fiat currency aesthetics with an ethos our community has injected into our tech. The reasons we stay become the reasons others arrive.” — Matt Kane
🗞 The Collection of Basileus — SuperRare Journal Issue No. 4
This week we released the 4th edition of the SuperRare Journal, featuring the collection of Basileus. As one of the top collectors on SuperRare, his collection includes abstract animation, loop GIFs, 3D, VR, retro illustration, crypto icons, surreal architecture, and more. Basileus selected some of his favorite works (by TwistedVacancy, XCOPY, Coldie, TrevorJonesArt and Alotta_Money) and gave insights into why he collected each one.
“One thing I can express is how deeply I appreciate SuperRare for making this new art medium more accessible for all of us. As a collector, I am excited for more innovations that will allow me to enjoy my newfound passion for #cryptoart even more.”
