Sandoval went through different phases throughout his career. He has been painting since childhood and after being promoted by Sofía Ímber, founder of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Caracas, he studied in New York and Geneva. His early works were framed in figurative art, but after he was kidnapped from his country and spent 90 days hiding in the jungle, he took a drastic turn in his work and turned to abstract art. “I had a hard time getting back to work. The experience was so hard that I needed to escape from reality for a moment. From abstraction he moved on to video. some of his short video art, in which he recreates the lives of artists such as Van Gogh or Magritte, have been acquired by museums such as the Tate Gallery and the Louvre, to be exhibited on giant screens. You now belong to the new generation of NFT creators. His thing, he says, is the metaverse. And, precisely for this digital paradise, prepare a collection of digital watches.
Since the beginning of this year, WISe.ART expands its NFT inventory with conventional art, contemporary art, photography, digital art and video as well as high-end collectibles. Buyers of these items benefit from the WISeKey NFT WISe.ART platform that provides an authenticated and signed version of the actual digital asset. If applicable, an irreversible link to the physical object is created, certifying proof of ownership, provenance and a set of contracts describing future usage and monetization flows (Smart Contract).
Furthermore, WISE.ART enables brands to include dedicated sections of the WISe.Art platform within their own ecosystems and websites to securely auction, trade and display high-value collectible NFTs, a brand-building alternative to the digital world.
WISeKey also announced the filing of a new patent application that guarantees the provenance, authenticity, persistence and long-term value of NFTs that are minted on Blockchains using this method. During the typing process, this method ensures that the NFT is not corrupted, incomplete or ambiguous.
