Crypto art is the beginning of a new art revolution. With the global adoption of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the art world is witnessing a groundbreaking shift towards decentralized management, where artists and collectors interact directly with each other.
While physical artwork exists only in our three-dimensional world, at a specific location, NFTs are extremely versatile. They can represent a part of a whole physical piece of art. A great example is what PBoy did with his “Underground Sistine Chapel”. By dividing the artwork into twelve different sections, minting an NFT for each of them, ownership over this artwork was divided between 12 different collectors. PBoy’s approach is just one of the ways creators are pushing the boundaries in tokenizing physical artwork.
Another recent example of tokenizing a physical piece of art was with the Burned Banksy event. The original Banksy art titled ‘Morons’, one of six prints belonging to the rare ‘Barely Legal’ collection was tokenized and physically destroyed. By setting the physical piece alight, the artwork has been immortalized onto the blockchain.
The fact that a piece of art is created through a physical medium does not limit it to exist only in the physical space. Drawings, graffiti, murals, sculptures, and every other form of physical art can be represented through a non-fungible token. Today NFTs allow collectors to own artwork without even being on the same continent as it, thanks to global, decentralized ledgers and blockchain technology.
Adding a microchip or holographic device to physical art is another interesting option to tokenize your art. If you have a QR code attached to the painting, leading to the address where the NFT token is stored, collectors are guaranteed that the digital record and the artwork are connected.
A great example of microchipping physical art is Hajime Sorayama’s collection of Sexy Robot sculptures. Each piece is fitted with an NFC microchip, and when scanned with your mobile phone, are redirected to an NFT marketplace where the token corresponding to the piece is available for sale.
Tokenizing physical art is attracting the attention of both artists and collectors, as more of them are starting to recognize the undeniable added value of representing physical artworks on the blockchain.
