Digital art is a creative movement using technology, evolving since the mid-20th century and incorporating the latest tech applications.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique digital certificates recorded on a blockchain, serving as an artist’s digital “signature,” guaranteeing the ownership, authenticity, and provenance of digital artwork.

A blockchain is a digital record-keeper spread across computers. Unlike big company servers, like Google Cloud or Amazon Web Services, blockchains are public databases owned by everyone, making it impossible for just one group to change them. This change brings the idea of “digital ownership,” letting people store digital assets in a personal wallet.

A digital wallet is like a virtual pocket for your digital assets. It’s essential for safely and securely holding your NFTs, similar to how you use a wallet for safeguarding money. This wallet is your personal space on the blockchain, allowing you to own, view, and trade digital artworks. We can help you set up a wallet, or you can follow online tutorials to complete the setup in less than five minutes.

Each NFT exists on the blockchain where it was created. The blockchain’s shared record keeps essential details like the NFT’s unique ID, ownership history, and link to the digital artwork.

The artwork can be stored on the blockchain, making it on-chain art. However, because of the high price of storing large files on the blockchain, the NFT code often simply points to where the file is stored, such as IPFS (InterPlanetary File System).

You can buy digital art just like traditional art, using regular currency or cryptocurrency. The only difference is the need to have your personal digital wallet to hold the artwork securely.

Generative art is made using a computer or non-human system that independently decides aspects of the artwork, introducing randomness. “Generative art” often refers to algorithmic art, but artists can also make it using chemistry, biology, mechanics, robotics, and other systems.
