Beeple Studios Grand Opening Wows Audience, Actualizes NFTs IRL

World-famous digital artist, Mike Winkelmann, aka Beeple, hosted a giant grand-opening party for his new 50,000 square foot gallery, Beeple Studios. The mission of the new space is to “bring the community together around education and a love of digital art.” 

The event was attended by many high-profile guests and digital artists. Several artists were part of the show including Fvckrender, Blake Kathryn, Smearballs (Nick denBoer), Dee Kay Motion, Raw & Rendered, Smeccea, Raoul Marks, XCOPY, Ash Thorp, GMUNK, Joshua Davis, Revilo Stuff, Victor Duarte, Brilly, David Ariew, Chelsea Evenstar, Refik Anadol, Justin Maller, Jason Ebeyer, Coldie, Pak and Gabe Damast.

The party was lit!

In addition to the above artists, partygoers were entertained by their host’s own live-creation showcase. In the space of under an hour, whilst the party attendees watched, Beeple created 51 new digital artworks! 

One of the gallery’s main attractions is a massive recreation of Beeple’s most famous work, “Everydays: the First 5000 Days." This NFT stole headlines when it sold for $69.9 million in March of 2021. Since the piece is a collage of literally 5,000 individual artworks, Beeple Studios decided to dedicate an appropriately massive wall just to display “the First 5000 days.” From photos of the event, the installation seems to be around 100 feet by 20 feet! In addition the massive wall dedicated to his top piece, Beeple’s new studio also boasts a “13,000 square foot experiential space” according to studio’s website. 

While it would be great to see and experience all that Beeple Studios has to offer, you’re going to need patience: the studios isn’t open to the public, yet. Public viewing times will be announced in the future. In the meantime, Beeple will be using the space as his main creative workshop.
