I’ve been in out-of-sight, off the grid, and in another world. A digital one. And I’m still there, but I’m still here too!
I can hardly believe it has been seven months since my last newsletter. Time doesn’t fly it moves at light speed! We are now fully in the digital age my friends, (Covid spurred that one along), and if you are still nursing your analog identity self, it’s definitely time to ascend!
You wonder where I’ve been? Well I blasted off to immerse myself into a new digital universe called the NFT space. While living there all this time I have re-educated and re-invented myself, my art and my brand into a new-age version of me. Re-orbiting here, I find myself fully transformed, so I’m still there, but now I’m here too!
I have a new PR agency supporting all of these miraculous efforts. PR FOR ARTISTS in Los Angeles, CA comprising a team of super human tech-wizards led by the amazing Ms. Aubrie Wienholt. A nod also to Gryphon Bearden and Colter Ruland on Aubrie’s team who are conjuring the likes of digital imagery and marketing that you have never seen before, (but you will soon). Together they’re elevating my art and online communications and fully transforming my Concetta Antico brand space.
My new WEBSITE is streamlined, stylish and swift! Based now on the Square Space platform it is ready to migrate and mesh with all levels media. Plus, I have put a new face forward on all my social media platforms too. So exciting!
Teleporting back to my Australian property from San Diego in August, I’m now manifesting my color magic in the Byron Bay art hub. Soon I will open the doors to my new Victorian inspired studio gallery space. Located at my vacation rental property called Tooraloo Farm Stay It’s little fairytale illuminated gem! I invite you to come and find the peace and serenity this lush 12 acre property imbues. Nestled in the heavenly hinterlands of Northern NSW, it makes for the perfect next vacation stop!
So now, without further fan fare, I welcome you to immerse yourself in this out-of-this-world issue of wondrous words, new experiences and welcoming imagery. Find out what the latest NFT buzz is all about! Re-think any worn-out ways and morph into a new place of endless possibilities. Truly it is a vision that only this new digital age can offer. Forget Mr. Toad for this IS one wild intergalactic creative ride!
There’s a whole new language out there and it’s not for the birds! Twitter is the platform I am learning to Tweet on these days as I make the run up to my first genesis NFT drop on THIS Saturday October 8!
Learning the language, following the frens and fam and becoming part of the huge community of NFT collectors and creators out there is seriously a full time job! Still, it’s so rewarding as I learn about the whole new 3D, digital and super spacey realm of Non Fungible Tokens. Making, promoting, selling and then the idea of them being traded is making the Wall Street world look like a mini playground amid this massive new platform that goes to infinity and beyond!
I invite you to follow me on Twitter so you can join me on this futuristic magical ride that IS the a next level gallery for fine art! Tweet and Twerp with me and hang out with me on my latest fine art perch!
GM & GN Sers!
What the heck is an NFT anyway?
So what is an NFT/non-fungible token? For starters it is what everyone asks me when I tell them what I’m up to lately:) Fact: it is a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided, that is recorded in a blockchain, and that is used to certify authenticity and ownership, and… I’m creating them to sell!
The fact is NFTs have taken the art world by storm—and continue to make headlines. Over the past year, the boom in their sales have created a wild, lucrative marketplace worth over $24bn. NFTs are not just overpriced digital art, I’m convinced this nascent technology will transform the way we live and enjoy the next level of fine art and creativity.
As I launch into this dizzying new world, I am grateful for my new agency @PRforArtists and to have been accepted to be a featured artist on the @SuperRare trading platform.
My Genesis NFT will be a MOVING & SWIRLING digital image of my famed artwork “Galaxy A-Go-Go!” (Above) (original in a private SD collection).
This iconic Concetta Antico image will be reinvented as a digital minted NFT to be called “Tetra Galaxy”. Dropping 8-8-22 on the SuperRare platform. Be the savvy collector who will take an NFT ride to the Tetrachromatic stars with this forever expanding investment!
Earlier this year I was fortunate to be selected to be a SuperRare artist!
SuperRare is an art-focused platform where people can mint, buy, sell, and showcase NFTs – also known as non-fungible tokens. It describes itself as “Instagram meets Christie’s,” and it sells digital art from a small group of handpicked artists – of which I am proud to be one! Follow me on their platform to be a part of my SuperRare fam! A big shout out to Paloma & Casey who head up this fantastic space, I am grateful for they support and their love of my art! Let’s go….!
