Beeple, the record-breaking NFT artist, has launched his own digital art studio, Beeple Studios, which aims to provide a platform for creators to showcase their art and foster a community. The studio opened on March 11th, with support from Christie’s, the famous auction house where Beeple’s NFT piece “Everydays: The First 5,000 Days” sold for $69.3 million.
During the opening event, Beeple conducted a live performance, creating 50 “Everyday” artifacts and an artwork called “The Long Road.” After completing each piece, an array of printers hidden in the ceiling rained down around 900 printouts on the guests, each featuring a yellow border and a “valuable red dot” that can be exchanged for an NFT at a future date.
Beeple then published “The Long Road” on his Twitter account, marking the completion of his latest installment of “Everydays,” and the NFT for “The Long Road” was added to his classic collection, BEEPLE:EVERYDAYS. Guests at the event were also able to view artworks from other NFT artists such as Fvckrender, XCopy, Pak, Victor Duarte, Refik Anadol, and others that were on display in the gallery.
According to Beeple, the purpose of opening Beeple Studios was to provide a space where various types of artists can showcase their work and participate in experimental community events. Although the studio is not yet open to the public, interested parties can register for a chance to visit the art gallery.
