Top Rated NFT Artists

NFT artists are basically creators of art who tokenized or minted their artwork into NFTs. Generally, in cryptography, NFTs are a digital identifier that can not be copied, substituted, or subdivided, which is recorded in a blockchain and is used to verify ownership and authenticity.

The recent rise of NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, has dominated much of the cryptocurrency conversation. The selling of one-of-a-kind crypto-assets, frequently in the form of photographs, has moved into the worlds of art collectors and technology, to name a few. In recent months, sales of crypto art in the form of NFTs have skyrocketed.

Let us take a look at some of the best Five NFT artists in the world

1. PAK

This list begins with the famous, anonymous NFT artist Pak, formerly known as Murat Pak. Despite his years spent in the digital art field, some believe he is actually a team of people rather than a single person. It is known that Pak is the creator of Archillect, a curation platform that reshares content that users interact with on social media, and a platform that burns (removes permanently from circulation) NFTs for the purpose of receiving Ash tokens.

PAK is known for working with non-fungible tokens. Pak’s highest-selling NFT,” Merge”, generated $91.8 million in sales in December last year{2021} and is one of the top expensive non-fungible tokens. Pak’s NFTs have been sold on platforms comprising Sotheby’s, Nifty Gateway, Makers Place, Super Rare, and Asynchronous Art. Pak is credited for having introduced Beetle to NFTs in Oct 2020. Between Feb 2020 and Apr 2022, over 180, 300 NFTs by PAK were sold across the most important and secondary markets, elevating $394.9 million.

2. Beeple

Beeple has a credible argument for being the most well-known NFT artist in the entire world, despite being second on our list. Naturally, he receives the most credit of any artist for popularizing NFTs, so that explains everything. It’s true that his remarkable selling of Everydays: The First 5000 Days for $69.3 million in March 2021 garnered worldwide attention.

Michael Joseph Winkelmann (born 1981) is an American digital artist, graphic designer, and animator best known as Beeple. He is well-known for using a diverse range of mediums to craft whimsical, phantasmagoric pieces that offer political and social criticism while referencing pop culture characters.

The NFT linked with Everydays: The First 5000 Days, a compilation of photographs from his “Everydays” series, was sold to an NFT investor on March 12, 2021, for $69.3 million. This is the first pure NFT to be sold by Christie’s In October 2020, the auction house previously sold Block 21, an NFT with accompanying physical artwork, for about $130,000.

3. FEWOCiOUS

One of the most popular digital artists today, Fewocious, who is a creator of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

FEWOCiOUS, a well-known Seattle-based artist, has sold a 1/1 NFT and tangible work of art for $2.8 million at a Sotheby’s auction. The artist, whose actual name is Victor Langlois, is one of the most successful crypto artists in the world. FEWOCiOUS’s “Nice to meet you, MiSUNDERSTOOD” was sold at Sotheby’s Art Auction House. His work was meant to explore the concepts of freedom, isolation and exploration.

FEWOCiOUS’ response at the Sotheby’s auction was simply “woah,” as he wrote on his Twitter profile. In addition to these insane sales figures, his NFT sales caused the Christie’s website to breakdown when his work was auctioned. At only 18 years old, FEWOCiOUS has enormous potential in the space. Victor, without a question, has a bright artistic career ahead of him, and we’re excited to see what happens next.

4. Xcopy

Since 2018, long before it was fashionable, XCOPY, a renowned crypto artist, has been minting NFTs with his original works of art. These days, his creations fetch thousands of ETH.

XCOPY is an anonymous artist from London who was born in 1981. In August 2010, he began publishing his work online as GIF art on Tumblr. XCOPY is a pioneer of crypto art. In 2018, he issued his first NFT. His NFTs were featured on the now-defunct sites Ascribe.io, R.A.R.E Art Labs, and Digital Objects. XCOPY was the second artist to mint an NFT on SuperRare.

Bright neon hues like cyan and magenta combined with black and white define the distinctive aesthetic of XCOPY’s cryptographic artwork. Street art or internet “Paint” memes are reminiscent of the jagged lines that appear to have been created with fat, graffiti-style pens and spray paint.

Several early works of XCOPY are one of the world’s top 10 most costly NFTs. Moreover, unlike rare CryptoPunks, which dominate the top rankings, XCOPY’s most expensive NFTs are 1:1s. This signifies that each work has only one copy and its worth is determined only by its artistic merit rather than the rarity of on-chain features.

A Coin For the Ferryman, a 2018 piece (1:1), was re-sold on SuperRare in November 2021 for a record-breaking price of 1,330 ETH or $6,017,292 at the the time of the transaction.
