The NFT Magazine, which in 2022 produced twelve incredible collectible issues with covers created by world-renowned crypto artists such as HACKATAO, COLDIE, REFIK ANADOL, OSINACHI, and many others, has been steadily working to push the boundaries, supported by the increasingly passionate Readers Community.
With The NFT Magazine it is possible to discover the biggest players in the Crypto world, market trends, expert interviews and analysis of everything happening in the crypto world and beyond.
All collectors of the covers of The NFT Magazine can access the “Readers Club,” to participate in the design of the next issues by choosing the topics to be covered, rankings, interviews and cover artists, thus becoming protagonists of the next issues.
The NFT Magazine has taken the phygital vision of publishing to another level. In November 2022, based on the idea and project of The NFT Magazine, the book CRYPTO ART – Begins was published in Italy, published by Rizzoli, which chronicles the exciting Crypto Art movement through the history and works of 50 crypto artists. Distribution to all bookstores in the United States will have to wait until September 2023.
The news for the new year are not over, in fact, they DOUBLE!
The NFT Magazine evolves thanks to the double DROP on Nifty Gateway that includes no longer only the possibility to buy the magazine in NFT format to access exclusive content, but also to acquire a special CRYPTO ART MONOGRAPH with cover created by a great crypto artist in physical format!
Every first Monday of the month – starting 9 January 2023 – it will be possible to access the two DROPs:
- The first with a cover celebrating the artist of the month and giving access to the digital magazine;
- The second with an unreleased NFT by the same artist associated with the limited edition physical book.
The new issue of The NFT Magazine
The contents of the new issue of The NFT Magazine are extensive and unprecedented. It starts with an in-depth analysis of important news that characterized the last weeks of 2022 and will have repercussions in the months to come.
Not forgetting the most striking case that has shaken the crypto world and beyond: FTX.
There is no shortage of charts dedicated to the future drops to watch out for (and why) chosen by experts, along with the top gainers and losers among the NFT collections.
A focus also on the market, to understand how the trend of cryptocurrencies in a bear market is continuing to strongly influence that of NFT collections.
Angie Taylor stars in The NFT Magazine
Ahead of the first drop of 2023 – scheduled for 9 January 2023 – the absolute star of the collectible cover is the great crypto artist Angie Taylor.
Artist, sculptor and animator, Angie Taylor studied sculpture in the early 1980s.
She became an Adobe animator, illustrator, and demo artist in the 1990s before giving it all up to follow her art.
She creates immersive VR and AR projects, digital sculpture, illustration and animation.
Her current creative process begins in VR where she models 3D characters and scenes. These are hand-painted and textured on iPads before being rendered in 3D.
Her work explores themes of identity, isolation and “otherness” – often supporting life misfits and highlighting their struggles.
Her highly distinctive style is difficult to define, but has been described by some as Punk-Expressionism – a unique blend of punk art, naive art, pop art, and expressionist aesthetics. She also explores her own challenges with neurodiversity.
Angie has been a punk since 1976 and a digital artist since 1987.
Crypto Art Monograph with Angie Taylor
Angie Taylor will be the first featured artist in “Crypto Art Monograph” the first monographs published by The NFT Magazine and curated each month by an internationally renowned guest curator.
The Editors of The NFT Magazine continue their research and curatorial work on the yet-to-be-discovered world of Crypto Art and unveil the major players in the art scene more contemporary than ever before.
The Crypto Art Monographs become true collectible books, short monographs with previously unpublished texts to discover the artist featured in the publication, but that’s not all: the cover is unique, specially designed for the monograph and reproduced on the book cover and in collectible NFT format.
The curator of the monographs: Fanny Lakoubay
The first CRYPTO ART MONOGRAPH dedicated to Angie Taylor is curated by Fanny Lakoubay, a Buenos Aires-based digital art consultant and curator with 14 years of experience in art, technology and finance.
With her team LAL ART Advisory, she supports institutional, corporate and private clients who wish to enter the NFT space. She is also involved in many NFT projects, such as The Blockchain Art Directory (BAD 2.0), We Are Museums, GreenNFT, and more. Previously, she has participated in some of the pioneering NFT projects (MoCDA, New Art Academy, CADAF, Editional App, Snark.art) and worked with larger organizations (RadicalxChange Foundation, Christie’s Auction House, Artnet, Societe Generale Bank).
She holds an MBA from HEC Paris Business School and a BA in Art History.
