KEY POINTS

  • Cube Art Fair returns May 18-22
  • Koller is known for breaking boundaries
  • His move into NFTs is another way of advancing his art movement

Maverick artist Helmut Koller has entered the NFT (non-fungible tokens) space as he showcases previews of his collection at this year's Cube Art Fair which was kicked off on Wednesday.

Cube Art Fair, which will last until May 22, features a dazzling display of physical and NFT art throughout New York City. The fair was born during the pandemic, offering a safe and accessible way for artists and the public to enjoy the large exhibition.

It has become the "World's Largest Art Fair," sharing art and NFT pieces on over 100 kiosks, newsstands, bus stops, and billboards across NYC and a 15,000 sq/ft billboard in the center of Times Square.

"I am the creator, leader & only follower of my own art movement. Disciples need not apply!" Koller said in an official release Wednesday.

Collectors can look forward to viewing the fine art NFTs by Koller at the Cube Art Fair before the collection is released.

Koller, whose style is "defined by the realistic representation of the form and the abstraction of colors," grew up in the Austrian countryside and after completing his training as a photographer, he became the official photographer for the Vienna State Opera.

For seven years, Koller photographed superstars like Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Leonard Bernstein and Rudolf Nurejev.
