The open auction starts next Wednesday, July 28, until September 19, featuring the ’24 Future Collective,’ a group of 24 internationally renowned Korean artists and creators. Participating artists include Mr.Misang, a digital artist who will introduce his new series work ‘Crevasse #1’ Jung Woo Ha, a famous Korean actor and painter, who will showcase his first digital art drawing ‘The Story of Marti Palace Hotel’ Jisu Choi, an illustrator most known for her cover art for the Academy award-winning film ‘Parasite,’ and more.

The artworks featured in Klip Drops are either digital-native works or original paintings with added motion graphics or animation techniques. In particular, artists who have been active in traditional art settings will enter the digital art market for the very first time through Klip Drops. The recreated works are expected to convey the artist’s worldview in more detail and abundance.

In addition to offering users the opportunity to experience high quality limited-edition digital art in everyday settings, Klip Drops will also hold various on/offline exhibitions and activities to build a stronger connection between artists and users, said Jason Han, the CEO of Ground X. We will continue working with art galleries, curators, and agencies to prospect for new emerging artists, he added.

Klip Drops opens every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, through either auction or limited-time deals, and users can participate with Klaytn’s token KLAY. Visit the official homepage at https://klipdrops.com.
