Generative artist William Mapan’s latest collection, “Distance,” sold out within 24 hours despite launching during a weak NFT market. Mapan has a unique way of explaining generative art by using a piece of paper, a crayon, and dice to demonstrate the creation of algorithms and introducing randomness. His work straddles the line between physical and digital, aiming to activate senses, feelings, and memories in viewers. Mapan credits artist Matt Deslauriers for introducing him to art on the blockchain. His notable sales include “Anticyclone #470” selling for 182 ETH and “Strands of Solitude #253” selling for 16 ETH. Mapan recommends paying attention to up-and-coming artist Anna Lucia. He finds inspiration from the abstract expressionism movement and performers who express their emotions. Mapan’s “Distance” collection, a collaboration with Cactoid Labs and LACMA, sold out its 250-piece collection and has achieved significant secondary sales volume. In other recent digital art sales, Ringers #343 sold for 39.99 ETH, Door VII sold for 22.5 ETH, and Chromie Squiggle #1606 sold for 20 ETH. Cool Cats will be the first NFT collection featured in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Nouns DAO fork has finalized with 472 Nouns NFT holders opting into the fork, while those who voted against it will continue with the original structure.
