The project provides digital Vietnamese artworks as NFTs (non-fungible items) on KardiaChain, a blockchain platform founded by a Vietnamese team.
Pham Toan Thang, founder of “Cổng Trời”, said: “The project creates opportunities for Vietnamese artists to step into the world.”
He added that with NFTs, collectors from anywhere in the world can access and own NFT artworks from Vietnamese artists. The items are guaranteed for ownership, uniqueness and global transfer value.
In order to ensure authenticity and transparency of the artworks, “Cổng Trời” has invited eight well-known experts and artists to be curators, including Vuong Duy Bien, former Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism; Siu Quy, steering vice chairman of the HCM City Fine Arts Association; and Nguyen Ngoc Lan, head of the Institute of Cultural Exchange with France (IDECAF).
The project provides works by Vietnamese artists such as painter and sculptor Luong Luu Bien, painter Tran Tuyet Lan, and photographer Van Dinh Huy.
Art lovers and collectors can find their works at https://congtroi.org.
Thang said his team was working with the HCM City Fine Arts Association, the Recording Industry Association of Vietnam, IDECAF, and private collectors to build an NFT community featuring more artworks by Vietnamese artists.
Nguyen Son is a talented architect, without doubt. But painting is his real passion, and represents something close to salvation.
A total of 143 artworks by Vietnamese artists in different generations will be auctioned worldwide on June 27 via the Drouot Digital platform in Paris.
