"The work that I have is very gentle, soft,
feminine but yet powerful."


Nanda Hagenaars | Photographer

Stories Behind the Art

"He immediately struck us as a good and gentle soul. He has this intriguing underlying blend of restless traveler and artistic madness about him.
Kind of like Ernest Hemingway meets Hunter S. Thompson."


Stian Vågen Nilsen & Tori Ørvik
Musicians Norway

'Definitely one of the most exciting
exhibitions we had so far!'

NEW: Limited NFT ART Editions | High End Fine Art Print Runs

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR PURCHASED ART IS EXCLUSIVE

NFT ART - Art on the Blockchain

It's time to admit that Blockchain protocols will increasingly show their use cases in the years to come. One of the essential specifics for me as an artist is the ability to sell my work as an NFT artwork. The way it works is that I will mint a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) on the Ethereum blockchain uniquely linked to a limited amount of digital copies of my artwork. Once bought, the NFT Artwork owner can safeguard his work of art in his Crypto-Wallet or sell it again once the limited edition runs out and the artist becomes more famous, grating the artist an original 10% fee on the resell dividend. It is a great way to invest in art and to support your favorite artist.

If's OK if NFT Art might still sound a bit like Science Fiction to you now, but I am sure Blockchain will become a part of all of our daily lives shortly.
