Binance, the leading global exchange, has announced its “100 Creators” campaign for the new Binance NFT Marketplace, to support and promote innovative creators from around the world and highlight NFT pieces from different cultures and styles.
Binance NFT will be launched on 24 June with the aim of being a platform with a high level of user experience, minimal commissions, high liquidity and high-value NFTs.
Among these 100 Creators is Italian artist Emanuele Dascanio who will launch his collection on the Binance NFT Marketplace.
These are the words of the artist:
“Those on the Binance NFT Marketplace will be my first dropped NFTs, a sort of digital baptism notarized on the blockchain and historicized by technology. Utilizing the potential of the Binance NFT platform will allow for greater fruition of my ideas and artwork in a completely new and unexplored way, all in a co-branding and co-marketing solution that every professional artist would want to implement to support their creativity and ingenuity.
By accepting the enormous challenge and opportunity that the current times have presented me with, I have tried not to distort my art, but rather to enhance it as if it were a sort of “transhumanism” applied to the work of art, protecting my poetics derived from the work carried out over a 20-year career within the artistic movement considered as hyperrealist or photorealist, where the idea comes to life, in my specific case, through the skilful use of refined artistic techniques handed down from master to master since the Renaissance. Consequently, in this artistic internship, I decided to intervene digitally on some of my best-known works, whose vision has been conceived specifically to be transposed with graphite and charcoal on paper for a live fruition which I would even call “analogue”, intimate, personal. With my openness to the world of NFTs, whose medium is nowadays purely digital, I wanted to add 3D motion and After Effects elements to these works of art to amplify their original message or to guide them towards the interpretation of the future that this disruptive technology leads us to reconsider. As a narrator of reality, I could not avoid approaching this world – even going out of my comfort zone – as I am sure that the times in which we live will be considered by posterity as a new ethical, historical, technological and cultural renaissance”.
These 100 creators will be a group of artists pioneering the Binance NFT Marketplace. These creators will put their artwork up for sale in the first week of the platform’s launch.
Emanuele Dascanio was born inItaly in 1983. He participated in various competitions and exhibitions at national and international level. He devotes much time to the study of artistic techniques and in a search for continuous improvement of its expressive capabilities.
In 2018 Emanuele Dascanio become an IBEX MASTER, considered one of the most accomplished drawing artist in the world. His artworks are part of the prestigious IBEX COLLECTION. His works are in private collections in all over the world
