First Suppers - The OGs of Cryptoart by NFT Radio

We have a special episode tonight, as the featured artwork and artists have played a significant role in Metapurse's journey.

It began with Async Art, a new art movement built on blockchain technology that enables programmable art - art that can evolve over time and react to its owners. To show off the capabilities of programmable artwork, 13 talented artists came together in early 2020 to collaborate on one epic, programmable artwork titled "First Supper."

The artists include Alotta Money, Blackboxdotart, Coldie, Connie Digital, Hackatao, Josie Bellini, Matt Kane, Mlibty, Rutger van der Tas, Shortcut, TwistedVacancy, VansDesign, and XCOPY.

Like the invention of the canvas, this was an evolutionary leap and changed the medium of digital art both subtly and profoundly - a feat exclusively possible on the blockchain.

Tonight, in partnership with Crypto Basel Club, we’ll welcome the team and artists behind The First Supper. The “First Suppers,” if you will. 

The First Suppers will take a walk down memory lane while discussing the programmable revolution of cryptoart, artistic collaboration, and the promise of cryptoart.

Presenting “First Suppers - The OGs of Cryptoart by NFT Radio,” tonight, April 2nd at 8:00pm CST.

The lineup:

  • Josie: Artist and designer who has been creating cryptoart since 2017. With a background in finance, she creates art that tells the story of the crypto ecosystem.

  • Conlan - AsyncArt: Co-Founder and CEO of AsyncArt, a platform to create, collect, and trade programmable art - digital paintings split into "Layers" which can affect the overall image.
