Blockchain in Art – Lyle auction to help tokenize art

The current auction features many works that form part of Lyle’s Boombox project. The project aims to capture the Boombox era with colorful virtual artworks depicting an era gone by.

Lyle’s trademark pieces have garnered significant attraction from art critics. The Boombox project began in 2005, and Lyle has focused on depicting the most important music industry names and brands in this project. Earlier, the Boombox project encapsulated sculptures and pictures. However, the latest collection showcases Nifties. The auction features six nifty sets, each one containing numerous price points and quantities.

After gaining initial fame from the unfortunate 9/11 incident, Owerko continued his adventures in the modern art sphere. His art includes modern-day living, and most examples are centered around the contemporary lifestyle. He has worked with numerous big brands, including Sundance Channel, MTC, and more.

No surprise that a lover of modernism is promoting blockchain in art through auctions. He has regularly promoted Nifties and believes in its potential as a medium to encourage the realm of art.

Blockchain adds a whole new perspective to the way artworks change hands. Besides promising security, safety, and efficiency, blockchain adds accessibility factor to the mix.
