Altered Art Reality: on November 9th 2021, we will make available for free a limited edition of 625 unique NFTs - ownable original digital art pieces - created especially for us by world-renowned artist, musician, and DJ, Jim Avignon. “Altered Art Reality” is a work by legendary Berlin-based artist and DJ Jim Avignon. The motive and the format of the NFT itself explore ideas around different states of consciousness and ever-widening fields of perception, with direct reference to the Metaverse as an altered reality. Born in 1968, Jim Avignon is one of the most extraordinary figures working in the German art scene today. He is a painter, a musician, a DJ, a performer and curator. Avignon paints a lot, and fast. His pictures are a mash-up of cartoon-like figurations embedded in an expressionistic pictorial structure where titles, painted on the canvas, control the composition. Avignon’s style utilises a minimum of lines to trigger maximum expression. His works can be found in collections and museums worldwide, as well as lining the walls of clubs, venues, and out on the city streets. Using the accelerationism of society as a theme, his ironic and humorous works are frequently seen to be disrupting the paradigms of social inequality.
