Exclusive: Google’s Former Artist-in-Residence Will Mint an NFT for Every New Piece

Now Anadol, 36 and with 321k Instagram followers, is neck-deep into crypto art, the most intangible sci-fi invention of our time. Now convinced of their worth, Anadol vows to mint an NFT—a crypto collectible—for every piece of art he sculpts, paints or codes, he told Decrypt. A year of quantum mechanics, quantum computation, quantum algorithms, merging AI with quantum mechanics and generating from a 200 million image corpus of nature. It’s young, aggressive, ready for questions, ready for critics and ready for growth. These are heavy works, and sometimes they’re much heavier, in practice, than making a painting. In 2020, Anadol exhibited “Quantum Memories” in Australia’s largest art gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria. “My role in the game is to merge the physical and virtual worlds in my work, and to do the same thing in the NFT world,” says Refik.
