Baranoff-Rosine’s paintings are set to be auctioned as an NFT in Mintable. Baranoff-Rossine, an early 20th-century master is set to behold new life on the blockchain. His paintings have been installed at the Museum of Modern Art.
Baranoff-Rossines’s paintings are underway to get released as NFT. The esteemed Cubo-Futirist’s work will be released in the Mintable auction house. Baranoff-Rossine was an inventor, sculptor, and painter. He was prominent for avant-garde experiments that blended sound, color, and technology, similar to that of the “octophonic piano”.
On Brave New Coin’s podcast, Zack Burks, CEO of Mintable observed the upcoming auction being one of the high profile examples of tokenizing a physical, fine art painting. He said:
This is historic, we’ve never had something like this in the NFT ecosystem before,” said Burks. “NFTs have been around for three years now, at least on Ethereum, and there’s never been a piece of fine art tokenized. It’s always been something we’ve discussed in the NFT ecosystem, but it’s never actually been accomplished, and especially not from someone who holds such a legacy as Wladimir Baranoff-Rossine.
Wladimir, grandson of the maestro said that the assortment of fine art and blockchain seems well suited to the Russian legacy. Burks and Wladimir noted that Mintable is expecting interest from fine art collectors, newly-rich Ethereum whales, and other collectors.
Burks believes the bidding will lead to a tiff between the NFT collectors and the fine art ones, given how the assortment happens to enamor both the worlds. He further said:
For me, obviously, I run a NFT marketplace, I like NFTs I collect NFTs, and when I see this, I wanna buy it. I want to hang this on my wall, I want to have a piece of historic art in my house AND have the NFT. That’s the beauty behind this drop.
