The first NFT artist book
The third CryptoArt Monograph produced by The NFT Magazine becomes the first NFT artist book thanks to the intervention of Andrea Crespi.
An artist’s book is a real work of art, conceived by its creator in the form of a book but with all the characteristics of a work of art: original, unique and representative of artistic research.
In this sense Andrea Crespi, the protagonist of the third CryptoArt Monograph, has interpreted the concept of artist’s book by intervening with one of his unpublished works not only on the cover of the monograph, but on all its pages.
Through a grid of lines – a primordial gesture of artistic creation – he traces the path to discover his art in the world of NFTs until he reveals the one who is hidden beneath those living lines: the timeless icon of the Mona Lisa.
But this new edition of CryptoArt Monograph takes on a new value: it becomes for the first time a phygital artist’s book, by its nature born as an NFT, it also finds space in the physical with the publication of the book.
Who is Andrea Crespi
Andrea Crespi is a visual artist whose work develops in the continuous investigation of different media and themes including optical illusion, social transformation, the digital revolution, identifying art as a tool for perception and analysis of truth through the search for beauty, sometimes manifesting itself in an intimate, personal and erotic portrait of him.
He is the third Crypto Artist featured in CryptoArt Monograph, carefully curated by curator and gallery owner Sandie Zanini, who has focused on new technologies and digital tools, pushing the boundaries on the role of galleries in this new era.
Andrea Crespi | CryptoArt Monograph is the first NFT ART BOOK, a real work of art.
