22 February, 2023; Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Dubai’s Web3 pioneer Bedu today announced that it will be bring two internationally renowned Artists to Art Dubai as part of the company’s participation in the show next month.
Bedu’s UAE-NFT members, and KeyPass holders will get exclusive access to Art Drops from Jason Seife and Alexis Christodoulou prior to them going on display at Art Dubai 2023 that will run from 1 to 5 March at Madinat Jumeirah.
UAE-NFT, Bedu’s art arm aspires to acquaint artists with the world of NFTs, with a special emphasis on aiding those who are moving from the traditional art realm to Web3.0. UAE-NFT aims to support artists in their transition by offering a platform to exhibit their works and projects, helping them advance on their creative journey and connect with fresh audiences in this dynamic and fast-changing ecosystem.
“Art Dubai is a focal point for artists from across the world,” said Amin Al Zarouni, CEO of Bedu, “and we see it as a must-attend event. We are delighted to bring along Jason and Alexis – visionary Artists and important voices in the art community and strong advocates for the role NFTs now play in Art spaces. We invite our NFT KeyPass holders to witness these artists’ latest creations and add them to their own collections.”
Jason Seife will exhibit 13 pieces. His work takes inspiration from MENA carpets, an artform that he believes is often taken for granted in the modern-day art community. His Middle East roots led Seife to recreate old weavings on by drawing over concrete in colours and mediums not normally used in the original rugs, channelling his penchant for detail into the intricate geometry of his work.
Genre-defining 3D artist and designer Alexis Christodoulou has pioneered an imaginary architecture aesthetic now seen around the world. He is the creative lead for Color C, a contemporary design studio specialising in 3D illustration and animation. He will showcase seven pieces at Art Dubai, each of which promises to test the limits of 3D as a medium for design and personal expression.
“Bedu has seen the global art ecosystem change, as art buyers move more and more into digital pieces and NFTs. Art Dubai is an opportunity to take the next step in that evolution,” adds Al Zarouni.
