Misan Harriman is a creative director, activist, and commentator. He is the first Black male artist to shoot the cover of British Vogue and is the chair of the Southbank Center in London as well as a pioneer in the creation and collection of NFTs.
“As the first curator of this collection I want to make sure the world sees the diverse voices that are making truly extraordinary work with art,” says Harriman. “The Tezos Foundation Permanent Collection will support and celebrate a new generation of artists that have chosen a smart contract-enabled path to be their true selves”.
Arthur Breitman, Co-founder and early architect of Tezos commented, “We’re thrilled to introduce this collection as a way to celebrate and garner additional awareness for artists of the Web3 world. This project, in collaboration with Misan Harriman’s talent and expertise, allows us to create a bespoke destination with the sole purpose of elevating digital artists who turn to Tezos for a sustainable way of sharing their work with the world”.
Recently, the Tezos Ecosystem has been in the spotlight at some of the world’s premier art & culture events, including Art Basel Miami Beach in December 2021 and SXSW ’22 in March 2022. Thanks to its pioneering, energy-efficient Proof-of-Stake design and low costs for minting and selling digital art, Tezos is an ideal blockchain for artists and brands. The Permanent Art Collection celebrates the artists pushing boundaries in the NFT category and will increase awareness of blockchain technology across the art world by empowering the institutions and artists building on Tezos.
