The innovative artistry of Jackson Pollock, known for his celebrated paint-splattered studio floor in East Hampton, New York, is now making a splash into the NFT realm. The artworks created by splattering and dripping paint on blank canvases, and onto the ‘Jackson Pollock Studio’ floor as a result, will showcase in an Iconic NFT drop fittingly called ‘Beyond the Edge’ on July 20.
Combining artistic efforts with the blockchain platform Iconic, the collection consists of four distinct perspectives of Pollock’s studio floor, displaying colors and marks inspired by other pieces of his works and providing intriguing insights into Pollock’s artistic process.
What’s more, by using AI and specialized camera equipment, high-definition images have been created to highlight precise, intricate details that go above and beyond what the naked eye can comprehend — offering spectators immersive experiences.
Jackson Pollock said, “My painting does not come from the easel.” As we introduce the first-ever limited-edition prints and digital artifacts from the artist’s studio floor, we remember how he dismantled modernist painting. #BeyondTheEdge pic.twitter.com/2H7Ze4v14m
