LiveArt is a company founded by veterans from Sotheby’s and Christie’s with the aim of bringing world-renowned Chinese artists into the digital art space for the first time. The company was established in 2021, focusing on creating unique and innovative digital art experiences that showcase the work of some of the most talented Chinese artists.

Here’s what we know: 

LiveArt is a community of over 400,000 people, backed by Animoca Brands, Binance Labs, and KuCoin Labs. LiveArt’s recent collection features some of the most prominent Chinese artists working today. The new collection includes works by Chen Man, Yu Minjun, and Mr. Starcity. These artists are recognized in China and internationally, having exhibited their work in major museums and galleries worldwide.

New collections from leading digital creators such as Weehills, the renowned street artist whose work has been presented at institutions including the Center Pompidou and the Barbican Centre, will also be managed through LiveArt.

Exclusive access to these collections will be available through LiveArt’s LiveArt X Card. The $ART token powers the LiveArt ecosystem and is a utility for collectors and creators. $ART can be used to buy physical and digital art on the LiveArt platform. Creators can even use $ART to share their artwork across LiveArt’s social media channels for extra visibility with LiveArt’s community of over 500,000.

LiveArt will also  partner with IV Gallery, including Beeple, Pak, WhIsBe, and BossLogic.
