“Back and Forth Mattia Cuttini 1999 > 2023”: the new NFT solo crypto art exhibition
It is called “Back and Forth/ Mattia Cuttini 1999 > 2023,” the new crypto art exhibition coming to Paris this November at NFT Factory.
Renowned Italian crypto artist, Cuttini will present his new multidisciplinary work in a solo exhibition highlighting his entire artistic journey, which started precisely in 1999.
Cuttini has become famous in the crypto art space for his practice that spans graphic design, blockchain technology, music and performance art, most recently integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI).
“Back and Forth/ Mattia Cuttini 1999 > 2023” will chronicle precisely the stages of his artistic evolution, a kind of approach that brings chaos, fragility and beauty to machine output, while incorporating new techniques and dimensions into his artistic practice further enhances the consistency of his work over time.
The new exhibition by Mattia Cuttini will be held on 8 and 9 November at the NFT Factory in Paris.
In this regard, Benoit Couty, artistic director of NFT Factory, showed his excitement in hosting such an exhibition and mentioned the artist in one of his comments as follows:
“Mattia was there in 2018 with a small group of artists, when no one was paying attention, to build a new space of artistic freedom that would change so many lives a few years later.”
Mattia Cuttini: the story of the Italian artist of crypto art and NFTs
Mattia Cuttini is an Italian artist, born in 1979. In his interview with The Cryptonomist and The Nemesis on the metaverse talk show, Cuttini recounted his first encounter with the world of NFTs, which took place precisely in 2018.
Initially, it was to experiment with the emerging technology of NFTs with his visual art and music.
Thus, Cuttini began making his first artwork that was later exhibited on the platforms of KnownOrigin, and then SuperRare, Async Art, and Medium.
Not only that, Cuttini went on to participate in numerous iconic group exhibitions such as the “Cryptoart Revolution” in Paris in 2021.
Cuttini has also collaborated with industry-recognized artists such as XCopy, who would also be the one who was awarded the #00, Moderats and purchased the #01 at 2 ETH of the famous Papercuts artwork in their digital version.
General NFT statistics show increases in Q1 2023
Compared to the last quarter of 2022, Q1 2023 saw increases in the overall NFT market, consolidating the strength of an industry that seemed to be settling down.
Data show volume growth in Q1 2023 in both ETH and USD. Not only that, the number of users also increased from 11.23 million in Q4 2022 to 14 million in Q1 2023.
The reason for this growth could be attributed to the advent of Blur, the new NFT marketplace for professional traders that has attracted the engagement of the crypto community.
Not only that, during this period there was also the first appearance of Bitcoin Ordinal NFTs that have slowly captured the market. In this month of May, the number of Bitcoin Ordinal NFT inscriptions tripled from 3 million to 9 million.
