Art tech startup Artscapy in collaboration with the Dalí Universe has announced an exclusive NFT release of works by world renowned surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. The launch of the first collection of NFTs coincides with the exhibition of Dalí artworks, Spellbound – Scenografia di un Sogno (Scenography of a Dream), in Naples at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore Alla Pietrasanta on 13th April 2022.

Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the most famous surrealist artists in art history, best known for his technical skill, precise draughtsmanship, and the striking dreamlike images in his work. He became known for breaking with conventions and forging his own new artistic language through his works in painting, sculpture and product and set design.

Artscapy has created a full NFT sales platform for Dalí Universe where collectors can buy the NFTs directly and is also supporting Dalí Universe in the creation of the NFTs, including the minting of the tokens. They will design authentic, limited edition, digital art productions of eight of Dalí’s iconic sculptures, which include Dance of Time III, Lady Godiva and Nobility of Time. The melted clock face is one of the artist’s most beloved motifs, representing the fluidity of time, and is incorporated in two of the works in the series on sale. Each of these NFT artworks will be an edition of 9,999 and will be sold at $30 (£23).

The Dalí Universe is a company specialising in the works of Salvador Dalí, managing one of the largest private collections of Dalí artworks in the world, as well as being the holder of exclusive intellectual property rights to 25+ sculptures and 100+ images including paintings, sketches, furniture and collectibles. Through this partnership, the Dalí Universe’s mission is to reach new collectors but also to deliver additional value to current Dalí collectors with these authentic digital art editions that present a new valuable opportunity to collect Dalí works.

President of Dalí Universe, Beniamino Levi says: “Having passionately collected and curated the works of Dalí for the past seventy years, I am excited to see Dalí’s work take on a new life in the digital sphere and to be part of this historic moment. For me, it was of utmost importance to select a partner I could trust to bring Dalí’s artistic legacy into the digital age in the right way. We selected Artscapy due to their long term vision and commitment to bring quality art to the new generation of collectors with artistic integrity. Their platform also fulfils all the compliance requirements and is ready to accommodate for future regulations, which leaves us confident to meet the institutional and collector demand that we are facing.”
