From NFTs to physical art: Beeple to sell “HUMAN ONE” sculpture at Christie’s auction

  • As reported by today’s Wall Street Journal, Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple, who sold the highest priced NFT ever ($69M for “Everydays”), is planning on selling a physical sculpture that is 7 feet tall and called “HUMAN ONE” on November 9.
  • The physical sculpture will be sold with an accompanying NFT.
  • This is a great example of how NFT artists can leverage their success in the metaverse to create new opportunities in the physical (analog) world. According to WSJ, “Earlier this month in London, Sotheby’s sold a $2.8 million acrylic box by digital artist FEWOCiOUS that contained a cartoonish blue, life-size figure wearing clothes designed by the artist for its owner to wear.”
