In conversation with Kevin Abosch and Skygolpe

In this episode of Fakewhale Live, host Jesse Draxler is joined by Kevin Abosch and Skygolpe, two prominent figures in the NFT ecosystem.

In particular, Kevin and Skygolpe share more insight into their first interactions within the NFT space, and their connection with each other — they both express how they were initially drawn to each other’s work and style, and discuss their friendship with a mutual friend, Mattia Cuttini.

The conversation then shifts to a memorable night in Milan where they met in person for the first time during the Dark exhibition: while reflecting on the valuable experience of sharing their thoughts with other artists and collecting data on their experiences with NFTs, they recall the fun they had over a tasting menu and wine pairing at a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Lastly, Kevin and Skygolpe delve into the impact of NFTs on their artistic careers and how it has become an essential tool for communication in the art world, concluding that NFTs have increased the value of artists’ work and opened up new opportunities.

At the end of the conversation, the two artists emphasize the importance of NFTs for artists in expressing themselves and communicating their ideas.
