Featuring Asia's most prominent names in crypto art, CAWA runs from 9 to 17 July in Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, and the Metaverse. CAWA features a stellar line-up of speakers such as Metakovan and Twobadour of Metapurse, the collector of the renowned Everydays: The First 5,000 Days.

Together with NUMOMO, the world’s first creative NFT agency, and Xeno NFT Hub, Punto Blu will be presenting NFT artworks in all locations while focusing the dialogue on the NFT Supper Genesis piece created by the visual artist Joo Jae Bum based on the secret recipe of LA-Seoul based chef Salvij.

NFT Supper Genesis will open doors to new opportunities for all: it enables the chef’s recipe to be authenticated through blockchain technology, for only the buyers of the NFT Supper Genesis will be able to unlock the secrets to his mastery in cooking. Joo Jae Bum is a respected visual artist whose core art practice lies in pixel drawings, as shown in his solo exhibition at Lotte Museum of Art and a group exhibition with DAZED, as well as collaborations with Starbucks, GoPro, Lecaf, Hypebeast, and countless more.

The NFT Supper Genesis will launch its auction on 16 July, 2021, 7pm, with a supper event at Punto Blu for the audience to experience Salvij’s recipe in person, witness and learn more about the aesthetic visualization of ingredients and the main dish by Joo Jae Bum, and exchange dialogues about NFT with NUMOMO and Punto Blu representatives.

Sign-up for the NFT Supper Genesis experience will open on 1 July on Punto Blu Seoul Instagram, with limited availability of 30.

ABOUT NFT

The NFT is a way for artists and collectors to engage with artwork in the current digital renaissance. NFTs can provide proof of ownership via blockchain technology, enabling artists to authenticate their works properly and make active sales as it also automatically collects commissions from secondary sales. After a record-setting $69 million sale on Beeple’s artwork at Christie’s on March 11, NFT artworks are drawing the world’s attention as Beeple’s Everydays: The First 5,000 Days is the third-highest sale for a living artists’ artwork after Jeff Koons and David Hockney.

ABOUT JOO JAE BUM

Joo Jae Bum is a pixel artist who pixelates daily landscapes, exercises, or elements reminiscent of the old memories in contemporary expressions. Along with his solo exhibition at Lotte Museum of Art and collaboration with renowned brands, his recent project ‘Pixel Portrait Project’ portrays audiences’ faces in pixels upon an interview. He wants to continue visualizing his imagination in virtual landscapes, wishing the art to be the game, the food, and the culture across on/offline.
