The Homoanonymus NFT collection is now on OpenSea!

The Homoanonymus NFT collection is now on OpenSea!

We are proud to announce the creation of the very first collection of NFT artworks. It is a part of the “Homoanonymus” collection – a comprehensively prepared project, born in 1997 and consisting of a rich collection of works and a well-thought-out artistic philosophy. Learn more about the project

The genesis of the “Homoanonymus” project was a series of sketches, representing human silhouettes, started by Artur Majka after his arrival in Paris. Those swift sketches of people spotted on the streets, or in the subway were the starting point to his artistic research – their stylized forms can be found in his paintings, sculptures, or jewelry. To quote Majka: “The Homoanonymus came to be in the Parisian subway. Among the crowds, I searched, and still do, for justification of its final abstract form. (…) There was no time for a deep psychological portrait, just a swift sketch, a “note” of the passer-by, an anonymous human. In the end, a human is always the same, no matter the skin color, hairstyle, facial expression or psyche.” The “Homoanonymus” project consists currently of drawings, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, but also of less conventional forms, following Majka’s research and experiences, such as art books, and also NFTs.

The first series of NFTs from the “Homoanonymus” collection is limited to 500 artworks. They are available on OpenSea. It is the very first collection of NFTs artworks created by one artist on purpose – designed as NFTs from the very beginning – and so comprehensively prepared from the artistic and theoretical viewpoint. Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity for collectors wishing to enrich their collections with artistically interesting works, with equally significant investment potential.

Andrzej Wat died on December 10th, 2021

Andrzej Wat died on December 10th, 2021

We are very sad to share with you the information that has reached us today: Andrzej Wat died on December 10th. He was an art historian, who greatly contributed to the popularization of the work of the sculptor August Zamoyski and the painter Jan Lebenstein among others. For many years he was at the heart of the Polish emigration circles in Paris, becoming its integral part, but also a privileged witness of its evolution.

Andrzej wat was born in 1931 to Paulina and Aleksander Wat. His father was a writer, translator, and co-founder of Polish futurism; his mother was also a writer and translator. Therefore, he grew up in a very artistic, cultured home, surrounded by artists, poets, and writers, such as Wladyslaw Broniewski, Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz and Adam Wazyk.

At the outbreak of World War II, the family decided to flee to Lviv, but after a few months, Andrzej and his mother were arrested and deported to today’s Kazakhstan territory. In 1946 they managed to return to Poland, but in the 1950s, they all moved to the West, living first in Italy and then settling permanently in France.

Wat became then a close friend with many artists and writers living in Paris, such as Jan Lebenstein, Konstanty “Kot” Jelenski, and Czeslaw Milosz. He wrote many articles, essays, and books on Polish artists, but he is especially known for his publications and his work popularizing the art of Jan Lebenstein and August Zamoyski.
