By Vinciane Jones

If 2021 was the year the art world woke up to NFTs, 2022 is the year that relationship is cemented. To celebrate the breadth of creativity in the NFT space, Artsy and Verisart present 22 for 2022, a curated NFT auction featuring 22 artists for 2022 from the contemporary, digital and street art market. “The 22 participating artists in this inaugural Verisart x Artsy curated NFT auction reflect the widespread engagement with NFTs throughout the art market and across all disciplines, styles and generations,” says Robert Norton, CEO & co-founder of Verisart.

Curated and minted by Verisart, the works are exclusively available on Artsy, the world's largest online art marketplace, and bidding closes around 6pm EST on February 8.

The participating artists work across a variety of mediums including AI, NFTs, painting, installation, photography, robotics, sculpture, video and more. Here’s a whistlestop tour of all 22 NFTs, grouped into four broad categories: Inaugural NFTs, Digital & The Art of Code, Street & Pop and Digital meets Physical.

Inaugural NFTs

Mark Wallinger, Penny Slinger, Troika, Mat Collishaw, Jennifer Rubell, Mike Egan

From YBA artist Mat Collishaw to feminist & surrealist artist Penny Slinger, these artists have left their stamp on the art world and are taking their first steps into the NFT space by releasing their inaugural NFTs with Artsy and Verisart. Represented by galleries such as Southern & Partners, François Ghebaly, Meredith Rosen and Kohn Gallery, Blum & Poe, their works have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, Venice Biennale, MoMA, LACMA, Centre Pompidou among many others.

Mark Wallinger's NFT poetically captures moonlight on a lake as he muses about the cultural significance of the moon as a symbol. Penny Slinger reimagines her iconic work Don’t Look At Me In That Tone of Voice initially published in her acclaimed book 50 % The Visible Woman, in video form.

Troika comment on the increasing uniformity in the world with My Life in Presets, a computer-animated collage of virtual objects, pre-set movements and backdrops depicting Zeus typing at a desk. While Mona Lisa Sold, by Jennifer Rubell, explores fake news and hijacks the NFT as a medium so that any reproduction becomes a further dissemination of the fake news.

Urn Burial, a video poem by Mike Egan, shows illustrated slides of a single phrase, "Everything is garbage," translated into 51 languages. Egan is concerned with the nature and universal beauty of garbage, and how ultimately, everything, even our bodies, becomes garbage. Mat Collishaw uses the example of Jewel Beetle, which frequently attempts to mate with a beer bottle instead of a female, to consider how evolution’s simplified interface through which we perceive reality sometimes fails, leading to misdirection.

Digital & The Art of Code

Daniel Brown, Lee Mullican, Mario Klingemann, Leo Isikdogan, Linda Dounia, Manuel Rossner, SMACK, Vince Fraser

The artists in this group are brought together by their use of interactive and digital mediums like AI, algorithms and code. Daniel Brown’s NFT showcases an imaginary architectural landscape featuring London’s hi-tech buildings created through custom generative software and photomontage. Lee Mullican's digital work from the 1980s, created on an IBM 5170 computer, is a testament to how brought art and technology were one step closer by pioneering artists.
