Grant Yun

We are so excited to reveal the next featured guest on The Future of Art (episode 8). Grant Yun has been a mainstay of digital art NFTs over the past several years and continues to create incredible pieces, blowing our minds regularly. 

He says, “Art to me is a means of communicating… 

Most of the time, artists have a meaning behind the work that they create, whether it’s intentional or not; And the viewer who looks at that piece of work is going to have a different interpretation of what that piece means on a person-to-person basis. So it’s really a form of communication that is used to talk from one person to another. 

Oftentimes, art is probably the most robust medium through which you can do this when it comes to long-term horizons – as we can have conversations between artists from thousands of years ago or artists of today.”

Stay tuned to The Future of Art – this extraordinary episode will be released this week!
