Frank Stella's new NFTs

A Stella sculpture of your own: NFTs for 3D printing

Having already produced complex sculptures himself with 3D printers, Frank Stella is now letting future buyers decide: His new NFT series includes instructions for printing so that those interested can produce their own Stella sculpture. From 9 September, the NFTs will be available for purchase for 1,000 US dollars.

September 05, 2022

On 9 September, the Artist Right Society launches a new platform called Arsnl. New NFTs by Frank Stella will be for sale there for 1,000 US dollars each. The special feature: The NFTs, which are published in an edition of 100, come with instructions for 3D printing so that future owners can create their own Stella sculptures. The size of the object is flexible.

Frank Stella (*1936) has been known for his colour field paintings since the 1950s and is also considered an important sculptor and object artist. He has already experimented with 3D printer sculptures himself. »NFTs were the natural next step«, Stella said. »NFTs are exciting. [...] We can build in resale rights; that’s something we’ve worked, rather fruitlessly, on for decades. It will be wonderful if technology can give us what the government never would.«Art.Salon
