Reial Cercle Artístic
Carrer dels Arcs 5
08002 Barcelona
Spain

NFT Barcelona brings over cross-chain Art NFTs to a wider audience while proposing workshops and talks for the art world. That includes artists, collectors, fairs, auction houses, galleries and other art institutions.

NFT Barcelona will exhibit 40 established and emerging artists in a 1200 m2 exhibition space located at the very centre of Barcelona. Also workshops and talks in Spanish and Catalan will be held at the same venue with the idea of making known and discussing Art NFTs.

This historic palace, located in one of the busiest areas in town, it’s the base of the Royal Arts Association, a nonprofit association founded by artists for artists in 1881, which has been an important reference since then for artistic, social and cultural events in Barcelona.

 

Key Goals
  1. Onboarding of Art Professionals into NFTs
  2. Bringing cross-chain Art NFTs and Web 3 technologies to a wider audience
  3. Create buzz around Art NFTs, specially within the traditional Art Institutions, through workshops, lectures, round tables, networking meetings, exhibitions and live performances specifically designed to the Art World professionals
  4. Providing activities centred on Artists, Collectors, Art Galleries, Art Fairs, Auction Houses, Marketplaces, Art Dealers, Cultural Entities and their environment
  5. Getting the general public closer to Art NFTs by providing open access and spontaneous walk-ins to an NFT exhibition

Artworks

Artists

Miss Van

Miss Van started wall-painting with brushes on the walls of Toulouse in the 90’s and quickly expanded her work throughout Europe (with Barcelona as her home city), influencing the feminine movement in European Urban Art. She is now considered among the most established international urban contemporary female artists. 

Victor Castillo

Victor Castillo is a Chilean painter currently residing in Los Angeles, California. He was born in Santiago, Chile in 1973, the same year that military dictatorship was established in his country. Inspired by the animations, science fiction movies and the illustrations on his family’s record covers, he began drawing obsessively at the age of five. Later he studied at University of Art and Social Sciences (ARCIS) and the Catholic University of Chile. Victor joined an independent experimental art collective in Santiago, creating mixed media sculpture and video installations.

Will Barras

Will Barras, born in 1973, is a British animation designer and painter. While studying graphic design in the 1990's, Barras became aware and subsequently part of the flourishing Bristol street-art scene and co-founded the influential Scrawl collective.

Dilka Bear

Those eyes that mirror the world – Dilka Bear, born 1977 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, is an Italian-based artist, illustrator and painter. She studied Architecture at the Almaty University of Arts, in Kazakhstan. 

Alberto de Blobs

Alberto de Blobs, born in 1982 started his career as a painter at the young age of 12, writing graffiti in Barcelona. From wild style letter painting, his style gradually evolved towards today's elaborate mixture of figurative and free form abstraction. With its open muralist approach, de Blobs' highly illustrative visual language combines references to his subcultural roots and art historical predecessors alike and with ease. Merging all types of influences, genres and styles, Blobs forged a brilliant outlook on creativity which is presented through his search for new experiences. This newly-made reality escapes all conventions and breaks free from links to any particular aesthetic trend.

Karla Kracht

Since childhood, the peculiar world of Eastern European marionettes and stop motion animation fascinated Karla Kracht. These heavily influence her work as a multidisciplinary artist, best recognised for her bizarre figures. She employs these in drawing, animation, painting, video and small sculptures to characterise contemporary society and to propose speculative futures.

Julia Benz

Julia Benz, born in 1988, is a German painter and mural artist. Benz studied painting in Düsseldorf and Berlin where she continues to live and work. Julia Benz has partaken in numerous urban muralism projects and collaborated with central figures of the street art movement. Her studio work consequently incorporates traces of urban canvas techniques and sensibilities, and thus has been exhibited in galleries affiliated to the urban art scene and in international contemporary art contexts alike. While many of her contemporaries aim to transgress toward the traditions of modern painting from an urban art background, Benz departs in the opposite direction.

SheOne

Born in London in 1969, James began to write Graffiti in 1984. A decade later he had formalised the concept of spraypaint as 
the primary medium of expression and was beginning to personalise his alter-ego signature as the gestural cage for contextual subject.

Kenor

Kenor is a multidisciplinary artist of international recognition. His artwork develops geometrical abstractions, inspired by electronic music. His current sculptural work is an evolution of his first installations of street art, created in abandoned spaces, with residual materials.

Nikka Bionikka

Mónica Muñoz (born May 17, 1974), better known by Nikka is an Artist and Composer of experimental music, who walks through soundscapes and abstract compositions. Darkness, noise and silence have always been an important element of her creations. In 2016 she made a sound piece based on the Delta del Ebro sounds, a microscope and PureData, shown live at Arts Santa Monica.

Dunja Janković

Originally a comic artist, Dunja Janković experimentations have led her to create site specific compositions on the walls of the city, on abandoned buildings, and, most importantly, on and with other people’s graffiti. On other people's work as well as on her own, she starts to parasitize, adding layers and by covering she 'discovers' a new image – 'Collaboration without Consent'.
