Following the explosion of Non Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”) onto the global art scene, Poly Auction Hong Kong has teamed up with The Authority to curate an exclusive collection of NFT creations by leading digital artists. The collection features brand new creations from NFT sensation Andreas Ivan as well as 11 other internationally renowned artists. They will debut through exhibitions in Hong Kong and an Online Auction hosted on Poly Auction’s app and WeChat mini programme. This is an extraordinary step for Poly Auction Hong Kong and marks a significant milestone in the growth of NFTs in Asia.
The “Smoochies: MÆTHERIAL” Exhibition will be held at Poly Gallery Hong Kong from 7 – 15 October, marking the first time ever Andreas Ivan, a remarkable digital Russian-Mauritian artist living in China, officially collaborate with an auction house. The Smoochies: MÆTHERIAL collection consists of 16 “Smoochies”. Each Smoochie work will be a 1 of 1 edition NFT available for Online Auction and accompanied by eight limited edition prints available for purchase. It marks the first time Andreas Ivan’s highly sought after Smoochies will be created in Fine Art print. Andreas has expressed that only a hundred of Smoochies will be created in the course of his creative career, making Poly Auction Hong Kong and The Authority’s upcoming auction a rare opportunity to collect Andreas’ NFT creations.
