After the artist Matteo Mauro announced a few weeks ago that he would start to tokenize the works of his collectors using Ethereum-based Non Fungible Tokens (NFT), it is now time for him to start with the first “proper” drops on Foundation.
Matteo Mauro’s first NFTs were targeted tokenization offers made to buyers already in possession of the physical artwork, while now the artist has started selling NFTs natively on his Foundation marketplace.
Three NFTs with a starting price of 1 ETH can already be found on his profile.
Matteo’s works are or have been on display on all continents, in famous museums such as the MEAM in Barcelona, the Songyang Museum Contemporary Art in Spring, China or the Crocetti Museum in Rome.
Here is our interview with Matteo Mauro to better understand his art and his project:
