Crazy Diamond $1M signed Hackatao and Oficinas TK – another eclectic artist very present in the crypto art scene – is a homage to what SuperRare has been doing and to celebrate the first 1million $ earned by the artists on the platform in the past two years.
This is the second of the “Diamonds series”, by the two artists’ collaboration. The first (Crazy Diamond [End-2019]) was created to celebrate the intense activity on SuperRare by the end of 2019.
A new diamond will be coming out every six months to celebrate change and newness and to inform us about what has been happening in that span of time – stories, facts, artists and collectors of the moment – like a war bulletin for crypto.
The past months have been meaningful for everything and everybody, since the spread of Covid19. But also social change as well as the shift of geo-political predominances and balances.
From the point of view of the art world, the part with a more traditional approach suffered extremely, with cancelled shows and events. While crypto art firmly continued on its march, as well as the whole digital world.
Inside the diamond, we can see a reference to BLM (Black Lives matter) movement that affected the SuperRare community with different art pieces inspired by the subject and funds raised for the cause.
On a different note, also in these months, a debate about royalties involved many artists with the result of a raise to 10% royalties on the secondary market by SuperRare.
We can also re-discover the names of the big collectors who have been pushing the crypto art to these levels – WhaleShark, Moderats, Tokenangels, Brett, Ethsquiat, Basileus, VK – and some new important ones in the space – like MOCA project, by Pablo, Desiree and Colborn. What about SOV that with his/her purchase made it possible to reach over one million dollars distributed to the artists?
What is a diamond? Another SuperRare art piece making the history of crypto art?
Did you really think that a diamond is forever?
Oh come on, you must have already forgotten about the “blockchain time”.
A diamond is forever, yeah, but here you’ll get a new one every 6 months.
