After the millionaire sale of Beeple and the NFT releases by artists such as Damien Hirst, the Swiss Urs Fischer is also ready to enter the world of Crypto Art through a collaboration with three of the greatest realities in the art market: Fair Warning, l online auction app founded by former Christie’s specialist Loic Gouzer, the Pace Gallery and the Crypto Art Markers Place sales platform.
Fischer will create a series of 501 NFT pieces, entitled “Chaos”: the first 500 will see the interaction of two totally foreign objects (such as an egg and a lighter), while the last will be a work that will collect together the 1000 objects used previously.
