New York City, NY – NFT Magazine hosts their first event, Crypto Art Fair, in NYC, with a massive billboard in the heart of Times Square, featuring some of the most innovative artists working in the crypto art world.
When NFT Magazine launched in 2020, founders Rodni and Xhois Baja wanted to create a platform that promotes emerging as well as world renowned artists in the crypto art world. They immediately connected with a wide audience, consisting of top tier NFT collectors as well as celebrities, and have grown to over 170k followers since they launched in January.
Now, NFT Magazine is hosting Crypto Art Fair, its first event, at Times Square in NYC. Over 70 top tier artists will be participating, including Alex Christodoulou, Alexa Meade, Andreas Wannerstedt, Android Jones, Annibale Siconolfi, Antoni Tudisco, Clay Weishaar, David McLeod, Eduard Mykhailov, Federico Clapis, Kidmograph, Klarens, Madebystudiojq, Marc Tudisco, Marco Mori, Ondrej Zunka, Roger Kilimanjaro, Shane F3D, Steven Baltay, Ted’s Little Dream, Vexx, and many others.
“We wanted to create an event for people to engage with NFTs beyond their computer screens in isolation, as well as bringing NFTs to the eyes of the general public through a unique visual experience.” – Rodni and Xhois Baja
A state-of-the-art, 15,000 square foot billboard with a high definition LED screen capable of full motion video, wraps around the corner of a building in Times Square, capturing impressions on two streets in different directions. The artists’ work will be displayed here throughout the day.
As part of Crypto Art Fair, NFT Magazine is partnering with SuperWorld and Pollinate to provide an AR (augmented reality) experience in Times Square in addition to their billboard display. Artworks will be anchored to locations in Times Square and will remain there for two days for spectators to view. NFT Magazine and Pollinate are curating the artworks for the AR experience together and this is not exclusive to artists on the billboard display. The AR experience will be accessible through the SuperWorld app.
NFT Magazine is also partnering with CSTM Haus, who will be hosting a panel discussion and afterparty in their New York venue at 675 Hudson St., Suite 4S, that evening. Rodni Baja will be the moderator of the panel discussion and speakers will be from SuperWorld, Pollinate, and CSTM Haus.
