What is art? Where is it heading? 

Is art still in the hands of artists and art dealers or it has become a tool for the crypto speculators?

 

The world is changing, everything becomes more virtual including art and in the process a lot of speculators are trying to twist things in their own interest like in the case of NFT. 

 

The crypto speculators are trying to make this the new “COOL” but what is so cool about it? 

 

Art is food for our souls, If they want this to be the new truth then they should start doing everything virtually, for example start eating virtual food or maybe get drunk with virtual alcohol, if they do this then by all means we will start to believe in their vision. 

 

As for us- galleries, artists, collectors… should we let hundreds of years of artistic refinement in the hands of the crypto speculators that don’t even know the difference between renaissance and contemporary? 

 

What about the painters, photographers, print makers, sculptors, performers and all the other artists who create real work, work that we can touch, smell, feel… should we give up on them for the sake of a speculative game? 

No thanks!!! 

 

NFT should be embraced as a new medium/tool  like we always did along the way with a lot of other things but it shouldn’t be allowed to take over! 

 

If it does take over then an entire generation of artists and their works will vanish in thin air making way for the crypto speculators and their pyramid. 

 

Should we allow this to happen on our watch?

 

The aim of this publication is to promote real art made by real artists! 

 

On the cover of our fourth edition we will feature the legendary British painter Francis Bacon.
