Artscapy, in collaboration with the Dalí Universe, has announced an exclusive NFT Drop starring world-renowned surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, marking an exciting chapter in Artscapy’s mission to bring quality art to the current generation of collectors online.
The launch of the first collection of NFTs coincides with the exhibition of Dalí artworks Spellbound – Scenografia di un Sogno (Scenography of a Dream) taking place on April 13, 2022 in Naples at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore Alla Pietrasanta.
Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is one of the most famous surrealist artists in art history, best known for his technical prowess, precise drafting and the awe-inspiring dreamlike imagery in his works. He became known for breaking with convention and forging his own new artistic language through his works in painting, sculpture, and product and stage design.
Artscapy has created a full NFT sales platform for Dalí Universe where collectors can purchase the NFTs directly, and also supports Dalí Universe in the creation of the NFTs, including the minting of the tokens. They will design authentic limited edition digital art productions of eight of Dalí’s iconic sculptures, including Dance of Time III, Lady Godiva and Nobility of Time. The melted dial is one of the artist’s most popular motifs, depicting the flow of time, and features in two of the works in the series for sale. Each of these NFT artworks will be a limited run of 9,999 and will retail for $30 (£23).
The Dalí Universe is a company specializing in Salvador Dalí, which manages one of the largest private collections of Dalí artworks in the world, owning exclusive intellectual property rights to over 25 sculptures and over 100 images, including paintings, sketches, furniture and collectibles. Through this partnership, the mission of the Dalí Universe is to reach new collectors but also to provide value to current Dalí collectors with these authentic digital art editions that represent a new valuable opportunity to collect Dalí works.
President of the Dalí Universe, Beniamino Levi said: “Having passionately collected and curated the works of Dalí for the past seventy years, I look forward to seeing Dalí’s work find new life in the digital sphere and to be a part of this historic moment. It was of paramount importance for me to select a partner that I can trust to bring Dalí’s artistic legacy into the digital age in the right way. We selected Artscapy for their long-term vision and commitment to bringing quality art to the new generation of collectors with artistic integrity. Their platform also meets all compliance requirements and is ready to accommodate future regulations, giving us confidence in being able to meet the institutional and collector demand we are facing.”
Alessandro and Emilia De Stasio, Founders and CEOs of Artscapy, have said: “We are honored to have been chosen as the exclusive blockchain partner of the Dalí universe and to help them enter the Web3 era by releasing the first-ever NFT collection by Salvador Dalí. At Artscapy, we are committed to preserving Dalí’s artistic legacy and bringing his work to new audiences, in addition to offering lifetime value to all Dalí collectors with these new authentic limited editions.”
