Sotheby’s Launches Third Generative Art NFT Auction


Sotheby’s has set April 18, 2022 as the start date for their generative art non-fungible tokens (NFTs) sale.

The auction, dubbed Natively Digital 1.3: Generative Art, will exhibit works by generative art pioneers from the past. It also covers the work of today’s most sought-after artists.

Generative Art NFT Auction

Sotheby’s is the leading auction house for contemporary, modern, and impressionist art, as well as other types of art. The third edition of Natively Digital is about to release. It’s a collection of exceptional, one-of-a-kind artworks co-curated by art industry professionals.

This edition of Natively Digital will focus on a collection of works by generative art veterans from the 1960s. This is according to a blog post by the firm. Both NFTs and real works of art will auction off for these pieces.

From April 18 to 25, 2022, Sotheby’s Natively Digital 1.3 auction will be open for bidding. From April 19 to 24, 2022, a pre-sale exhibition event sets to take place in the firm’s New York auction house.

The business has hinted that prominent generative avant-garde artists’ work will show. It includes Vera Molnar, Chuck Csuri, and Roman Verostko, who will be accessible as NFTs for the first time at the event.

A New Face of Art

For the uninitiated, generative art simply refers to artworks made in part or entirely by a self-contained system such as a computer. To put it another way, generative art is the act of bringing new ideas, forms, shapes, colors, or patterns to life using algorithms. In essence, it’s acceptable to conclude that some NFTs fit into the category of generative art.

Sotheby’s vice president and co-head of digital art is Michael Bouhanna. He claims that NFT ventures such as CryptoPunks and the Bored Ape Yacht Club have made international news in the last year.

Few people are aware of how these NFTs link to the history of twentieth-century art movements. This includes the pioneering generative artists that paved the path for computer art, as well as algorithm-based art, which has influenced many recent NFT initiatives.

In 2022, the NFT market anticipates to be worth $21.33 billion. It has a 52.1 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

Leading global brands, auction houses, celebrities, and corporations have all jumped aboard the NFTs bandwagon. Christie’s signed a collaboration agreement with OpenSea, a prominent NFT marketplace, in November of last year. On the Ethereum blockchain, an on-chain digital collectibles auction will hold.
