My newest fascination is the sale of digital art on places like Nifty. There artist that have become so popular that their pieces sell for $100K plus. Putting it into RARE and then trying to sell it. I can’t draw for shit but I am creative. I also realize that people still love to hold and see things so I can see why some artist are more popular than others. It comes down to much more than just how “cool” their art is.
To many its ridiculous. To many its cool. But the reality its a real market with buying and selling so theirs opportunity to make money. As long as there is that the market will continue to grow. I’ve been watching it for 6 months and I would have bought a few pieces but the pieces I liked were going for $3K and I thought, like many, that’s crazy pricing for digital art. Now that its $10K I don’t know what I think.
I am stopped saying “that’s a crazy price for that” after I passed on a Banksy original for $10K back in 2008. I thought the price was too much for a piece that someone spray painted with a stencil. That piece is hundreds of thousands now. It’s made me look at things a little differently ever since. I’m definitely looking at this. But not as a buyer but as a creator.
