The Art of Permanence is the first collection of works to be auctioned via NFT from Spanish director, artist and animator Alberto Mielgo. The collection, which includes iconic pieces spanning his career as well as unreleased work, was created with the express purpose of peeling back the question: What is the value of permanence? As software and technology swallow the world, cryptocurrency creates revolutionary alternatives to some of humanity’s oldest problems while creating new implications for the future of possessions. Through his NFT collection, Mielgo explores this narrative specifically for the possession of art, perhaps humanity’s truest expression.
