Graphic designer Mike Winkelmann known as Beeple has opened a digital gallery in Charleston, South Carolina, named Beeple Studios.
The gallery supports a 50,000-square-foot digital art space, a 13,000-square-foot gallery and an additional 13,000-square-foot experimental area.
Winkelmann plans to utilize the space to create his own artwork and build a place “to program multiple different types of artists showcases and experimental community events”.
The opening event on Saturday, March 11, in partnership with Christie's auction house displayed artwork from NFT artists XCopy, Pak, Fvckrender, Victor Duarte, Refik Anadol, among others.
In March 2021, Winkelmann previously sold his artwork, Everydays: The First 5,000 Days, for $69.3m in a Christie's auction, standing as the most expensive NFT sale ever to date.
Digital art experiences have become popular over recent months with NFT artists finding their way into the most prominent museums.
Recently, artificial intelligence and NFT artist Claire Silver showcased her digital collection at the famous Louvre museum in Paris.
In February, Cozomo de’ Medici (NFT collector thought to be rapper Snoop Dogg) donated digital artworks to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Yuga Labs gifted a CryptoPunk NFT to Paris’ Centre Pompido.
