Matteo Mauro Studio is offering retrospective tokenization of collected physical artworks at a symbolic price on the OpenSea, the first and biggest marketplace for user-owned digital goods, which involve collectibles, gaming items, domain names, digital art, and other properties supported by a blockchain.
As they say: “A core part of our vision is that open protocols like Ethereum and interoperable standards like ERC721 and ERC1155 will enable vibrant new economies where users truly own this powerful brand new type of digital item”. Accordingly, they are building tools that allow developers to establish efficient, integrated marketplaces for their digital properties.
The artworks are tokenized with NFT or a non-fungible token. NFT is a unit of data stored on a digital archive named a blockchain. It can represent photos, videos, audio, and other diversity of digital files. NFTs have exciting new properties: they’re unique, provably limited, liquid, and functional across numerous applications. Just like with anything you buy, you can do whatever you want with them, give them as a gift, sell them, or even throw them in the garbage.
Open Sea listed 3 different pieces of art from Matteo Mauro. Baroque, Journey Through the Afterlife, and Water, as water is the element I was born into. All of them from his series Micromegalic Inscriptions, one of his most complex projects.
Baroque is personal reading of the Baroque style which reinterprets it through superb research and technical work. It represents a continuous and productive dialectic between analog and digital art, inspired by the artist Paolo de Matteis with his 18th-century Triumph of the Immaculate Conception.
Water, as water is the element I was born into is the result of a continuous and ongoing research process that propels Matteo’s artistic expression. Temporary and indefinite discovery in movement, led by impulses and forces of the elements like air, wind, and water. He transforms and the historical power of traditional painting with the assistance of new technologies to create a hybrid artwork.
Journey Through The Afterlife, on the other hand, even though the abstract art is open to reinterpretation can remind you of a trip in eternity. It was influenced by color tones and the drama of the late Rococo artworks. The configuration and linework of the image are structured similarly to the most impressive engravings created by Gustave Dorè for the Divine Comedy.
