S3 Ep74 Monty Preston with Saatchi Art's NFT plan Interview With An Artist

    • Arts

2022 was another big year in the art scene. Gallery openings got canceled, digital viewings had to continue to suffice, and NFT's exploded on to the market.

It was really Beeple’s collage work, Everydays: The First 5000 Days, sold via Christie’s for $69 US million that got everyone stirred up. That was March. Since then, the NFT/crypto market has been a rollercoaster ride.

And I'll be honest, it still seems like something pretty foreign to me and probably a lot of artists I know and have spoken to.

However, Saatchi Art are looking to change that.

My last guest of the season is Monty Preston. Monty is a manager of Art Advisory and Curation at Saatchi Art. Monty is part of a team working with artists and collectors to help them make the leap into the NFT space. 

You can find Monty and all the information we talk about on saatchiart.com/nft
