We are a digital art gallery for the alternative/underground scene and we’re here to build and foster a socially conscious and engaged community. We cater to bands and musicians, visual artists, photographers, models – anyone who doesn’t have a place within the stuffy, elitist traditional art market. We’re independent, and want to make sure our scene can embrace the rise of this new digital art space.
Rekreation.Art’s digital gallery helps our signed artists to navigate the crypto world to reach new fans to collect their art. We cover all the nitty gritty stuff to make it as easy as possible for artists to create and sell NFTs via the environmentally conscious daVinci platform.
But we’re more than that. We’re here to build a community and critically engage the arts to support social change. We understand the power of art and what artists can achieve.
So we’re building a space for artists and fans to come together and make a difference, supported by decentralised finance.
NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. It’s a digital token redeemable for a digital piece of art, an experience, or even a physical object that’s connected to the blockchain. In a nutshell – it’s a digital copy of an original piece of art (photo, video, 3D animation, a book, anything!) linked to a crypto currency. It can’t be fudged, re-created, manipulated or stolen.
It can be hard to wrap your head around because it’s so new and there’s nothing else like it – but that’s why we’re here. To show it’s actually simpler than you think.
Imagine you bought an OG copy of ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ by George Orwell when it was originally published on 8 June 1949. You own a first edition – highly collectible – but you don’t own the rights of the novel, or the rights to commercialize it. You can make copies for yourself or display it, but only for non-commercial purposes. But you can sell it on the second hand market.
NFTs are like the digital version of this – creators keep the copyrights to their work, they have just sold the artwork to a fan through an NFT. The best part? Because it’s digital, original creators can get a cut of all future sales of the NFT. Your work goes up in value – you get a slice of the pie. Someone sells a second hand copy of Nineteen Eighty-Four? Orwell ain’t getting shit.
You shouldn’t – don’t trust anyone.
But we’re a team of artists, art advisors, journalists and motion graphic designers with years of experience and fancy places on our resumes like Christian Louboutin and Museum of London.
We want to offer you an easy opportunity to ride the NFT crypto wave with us while it’s hot and hyped – we’ll just take a small cut of final sales so we can feed ourselves.
