Good luck framing this sucker. For the first time, Christie’s is the first major auction house to put a purely digital artwork on the auction block. It’s called Everydays: The First 5000 Days (2021) by digital artist Beeple (aka Mike Winkelmann). It’s a digital non-fungible (NFT) collage made with 5,000 images and assembled over the course of 13 years. The art is Beeple’s pinnacle of his digital creations, encapsulating the abstract, the grotesque, the personal, the obsession with technology, and the political turbulence of the current era. All of it is organized by theme and/or color. Keep in mind that it’s not a physical piece of art but a digital file that comes with a digital token encrypted with the artist’s signature that verifies the authenticity and is permanently attached to the work. Upon the close of the auction, the art will be registered on the blockchain. There is no price estimate, and bidding starts at $100. Now, where to find a place to not hang it.
