DADA.ART is one of the 50 artists featured in “CRYPTO ART – Begins,” the first NFT book chronicling the history and evolution of Crypto Art
“CRYPTO ART – Begins” chronicles the exciting beginnings and evolution of Crypto Art through the history and work of 50 of the best artists in the world who contributed to its birth and are still an active part of the present and future of its revolution with their NFT projects.
CRYPTO ART – Begins presents DADA.ART
DADA.ART is place immersed in the virtual world where art comes to life as the result of collaboration between artists and enthusiasts of the blockchain universe.
The collection born from the creative encounters, “Creeps & Weirdos,“ is an heirloom of NFT history and a masterpiece of Internet aesthetics.
WHAT IS DADA?
DADA is a virtual meeting space for Crypto Art enthusiasts from all over the world.
A decentralized community that hosts influential artists, technology professionals, researchers and collectors who gravitate within the blockchain ecosystem.
Communication between the different users of DADA is not through speech, but through creative collaboration, resulting in participatory works.
This reality has existed since before crypto art entered the art debate.
The 2017 launch of “Creeps & Weirdos”-an NFT project and collection containing 108 unique pieces created by 30 platform artists-established DADA’s position among the pioneers of Crypto Art.
“Creeps & Weirdos” is a representation of the essence of DADA.
When the collection is launched in 2017, Crypto Arte is uncharted territory. Curiosity and innovation drive what is still an experiment, and in 2019 the collection undergoes its first update.
The momentary market stall prompted DADA’s decision to reward all original collectors with an updated version of the 2017 NFTs and close the collection.
In 2021, the promising recovery of the crypto market leads DADA to consider a new exit, but the market is faster and, impressed and fascinated by this piece of NFT history, turns its full attention to the project.
Now “Creeps & Weirdos” is a single collection encompassing two editions in which the same tokens are represented with different characteristics and nuances related to different stories.
Among the pieces in Cromomaniac’s “El Raro” collection powerfully embodies the soul of this project.
The perspective is a cinematic close-up of a creature with human features that with an eerie smile seems to welcome the viewer into another reality.
The work is in line with the creative concept of “C&W,” which was released on Halloween 2017, a date symbolic of the opening of foreign dimensions just like the digital world.
The fluorescent colors hark back to the original Internet aesthetic that is meant to be different from the real to remind us that the virtual universe is a mirror of our own, but it is not the same thing.
CURATOR ELEONORA BRIZI SAYS OF DADA.ART
Eleonora Brizi, curator and founder of Breezy Art, who curated for The NFT Magazine the selection of the 50 artists featured in the book “Crypto Art Begins” writes about DADA.ART:
“DADA was also special in the way the interview was conducted. through the voices of multiple artists, as a collective. One characteristic of DADA is its involvement with the social aspects of the Crypto Art space. DADA does not just criticize, but proposes and works on solutions. DADA is hope.”
