We’re back and we’re ready for action! Artifex returned for the second year to NFT NYC, collaborating with the most innovative minds in web3 to produce a legendary event – NFT SEA proved to be nothing short of epic! 

We took over Seaport NYC and IPIC Movie Theater with ALLSHIPS, Animus, Atomic Form, Blockparty, Guppy NFT and many more partners, sponsors, artists, and builders. The day was packed with art, music, film, friends, and unforgettable fun!

Artifex Sculpture Garden 

Outside, we worked with to activate the Artifex Sculpture Garden in AR. Our favorite 3D works of art were brought to life in grand scale! 

The Artifex AR Sculpture Garden can be experienced any time at Seaport NYC so check it out next time you’re in town.

Inside at IPIC Fulton Market, the vibes were immaculate in the Artifex Theater, where we welcomed collectors and several artists for intimate talks throughout the evening. 

We chatted with Micah Johnson, Bryan Brinkman, GMunk, Mad Dog Jones, Fvckrender, Baeige, Victor Mosquera, Josh Pierce and more while Powered by Artifex premiered on the silver screen. 

The full-length feature begins with a thrilling tour through all the 3D sculptures in the collection, followed by a glimpse into the immersive Artifex Unreal worlds. These stunning visuals were created by Artifex Art Interaction Director, Justin Wetch, also one of our first Artifex Spotlight artists along with Laith Safa and JeyRam

Each of these three had their own spotlight moment – their recent Artifex collector airdrops were a main feature of the film. Artwork from their most recent NFT collections was also shown. Stay tuned for what’s coming next from these impressive emerging artists! 

We were honored to include a very special tribute to Alotta Money created by Eclectic Method. Alotta Money will always be remembered as a founding artist of the Artifex project and of the NFT movement as a whole. We miss you!
