Digital artist ‘Beeple’ held Charleston museum grand opening

Digital artist ‘Beeple’ held Charleston museum grand opening

This weekend’s opening of a new art gallery in the Lowcountry attracted international attention. It is an attempt to exhibit contemporary digital art in a physical environment.

Previously, the majority of people could only view “Beeple” artwork on their own digital devices. According to the artist, whose real name is Mike Winkelmann, this new section is an attempt to show that digital art is simply another form of expression.

In 2021, a “non-fungible token” (NFT) of Winkelmann’s artwork sold at auction for more than $69 million.

At Clements Ferry Road, a new 50,000-square-foot building has being constructed. It is close to distribution centers and warehouses.

Within, there are many working studios, a gallery, and a testing area.

Winkelmann claimed that he is striving to walk a fine line between work that is engaging enough to provoke thought without being too cryptic.

“There’s enough here that people would find something familiar to them in like an art experience,” Winkelmann said. “And then there’s enough here where it’s like, ‘well, that that is certainly a new art experience that I never had before.’”

On Saturday, art enthusiasts from all across the country, including James Tierney of Pennsylvania, poured upon Charleston for the grand opening. He expressed his excitement that the studio provides the digital art community with a gathering place.

In response to recent criticism of NFT economics, he stated, “If you’re not in it just to try to make a quick buck, if you’re really getting to know people and learn the art, it’s still a great, great community.”

According to their website, the studios will be open to the public for a limited time following this weekend’s grand opening.
