The show promises rare glimpses of six sealed CryptoPunks printed as unique lithographs and signed by Larva Labs co-founder John Watkinson. The “sealed” prefix refers to these rare works accompanied by a special wax-sealed envelope containing the 12-word “seed phrase” which grants ownership and irrevocable access to online NFTs.

Only 24 such sealed CryptoPunks have been created. With five recently auctioned by Sotheby’s London, four auctioned this month by Christie’s Hong Kong, and the rest in private collections, “Portrait of an era” will be a unique chance to see the six punks exhibited together at the HOFA gallery.

Other featured NFT works include the trending Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), whose floor price recently soared in value from $15,000 to over $145,000 in just six weeks.

The visually stunning sculptural works of acclaimed Dutch artist Joseph Klibansky will also be staged alongside canvases by French artist Sepand Danesh, whose works were recently featured at Expo Dubai 2020. The show will also mark the genesis of NFT by the British designer and artist King Nerd who is renowned for his highly skilled and intricate printmaking work.

Elio D’Anna, co-founder of the HOFA gallery says “Portrait of an Era aims to unify the conventional and digital art markets in a pioneering exhibition that both embraces the future of the art world and celebrates the digital renaissance underway.”

He adds “This is a hugely significant event for us as we also start minting and auctioning our ‘own’ NFTs through the platform at launch. Which makes us one of of the first galleries in the world to launch its own NFT house.
