Famous italian photographer — Pietro Venchierutti — dives into CryptoArt
Singapore, Singapore 14 Dec 2020
Pietro Venchierutti is an Italian photographer active in Venice, Italy, well known for his works around Venice, such as:
He has been appreciated by many prominent Italian critics. Amongst them, Luca Berta and Francesca Giubilei from Venice Art Factory are indeed some of the most distinguished art exhibition curators, especially at the well known ‘Venice Biennale’.
Here is what both Luca Berta and Francesca Giubilei had to say about Pietro’s work:
…each element of foreshortening, view, perspective depth or reflection in the water is obliterated by a strictly frontal image, which occupies the entirety of the frame. Venchierutti does not leave space for the gaze to get lost and intertwine in the Venetian landscape. On the contrary, it traps him in jerks close-ups of walls or flat surfaces, which suppress the third dimension…
Pietro has now decided to make the leap forward in the NFT (non-fungible tokens) space, choosing Atelier 721 as curator and Mintable.app as the trusted showcase. Using Mintable — Pietro is able to tokenize (create/turn) his works of art into blockchain items. Which can be listed for sale and purchased globally for the cryptocurrency ETH (ethereum).
Using blockchain technology to sell his artwork provides a series of benefits he cannot get with other digital platforms, or even real life galleries. For example — the buyer of the NFT has a proven trackable record of ownership they can use for tracking and authenticity, this is inherit to all NFTs, but with Mintable — there is something called unlockable files. Which means Pietro can provide the high resolution, full digital image of the works of art — only to the person who has purchased it, via blockchain technology — without middlemen and in a completely trustless manner.
Blockchain technology is set to revolutionize the art world — as we have already seen 300 million USD traded of cryptoart this year alone — next year is poised to be the first 1 billion dollar year for cryptocurrency art.
