‘INFINITΞ FUTURΞ’ will be included in Sotheby's online auction ‘Natively Digital: A Curated NFT Sale,' which runs from June 3 to June 10, 2021.


Don Diablo, a Dutch visionary, is set to auction his first work at the prestigious auction house Sotheby’s. ‘INFINITΞ FUTURΞ,’ the pioneering artist’s third digital art piece, will be included in Sotheby’s online auction ‘Natively Digital: A Curated NFT Sale,’ which runs from June 3 to June 10, 2021.

Don has become renowned for creating crypto-artwork that bridges the gap between the physical and digital worlds, effortlessly combining his forward-thinking vision with a hint of nostalgia. He is known for his inimitable creative concepts and futuristic aesthetic. With the previous sales of his GΞNΞSIS NFT – holographic 1 of 1 piece – and Destination Hexagonia’ – the world’s first-ever full-length concert NFT, which sold in four minutes on prestigious digital art platform SuperRare for 600Ξ (current market value $2.1 million USD), he will raise the bar once more with the sale of his new piece INFINITΞ FUTURΞ. The 1 of 1 see-through HEXAGRAM cabinet, designed exclusively for Sotheby’s, is set to revolutionize the future of art in a way that has never been done before, based on his GΞNΞSIS NFT. Don will be able to use the collector’s WiFi (if allowed) to continue producing and streaming art for the rest of his life, creating a one-of-a-kind connection between collector and artist for a truly infinite piece of art. INFINITΞ FUTURΞ will be the only physical piece available for purchase at the upcoming auction.

Don Diablo about Sotheby’s auction and INFINITE FUTURE

INFINITΞ FUTURΞ is a mixture between a digital art piece, a physical piece and a glimpse of the future. The digital part of this NFT is a mesmerizing visualization of an infinite loop showing an energy form trapped in a constantly evolving maze, symbolising the inevitable circle of life. The NFT is stored on a unique cartridge which can be inserted into a custom made one-of-one see through hologram cabinet. Once inserted it will bring your NFT to life, creating a unique piece of art which is sure to captivate the attention of anyone who lays eyes on it. But that’s not all… – Don Diablo

Don’s participation is further testament to his outstanding contribution to the crypto-art world to date, as this is the first time a major auction house will bring a collection of leading NFT artists to auction. The Dutch star will perform alongside other record-breaking artists such as Pak, X-Copy, and Mad Dog Jones, as one of only twenty-eight artists chosen. The online auction, described as a group show of the most cutting-edge artistic practices in space, will include historically significant works like ‘Quantum,’ the world’s first-ever known NFT, Cryptopunk #7523, a very rare alien Cryptopunk, and the world’s first intelligent NFT (iNFT).

Natively Digital: A Curated Sale will be the greatest occasion to educate our ‘’traditional’’ audience to the great artists and diverse talents that compose this new space. The multi-venue virtual and physical exhibitions are an ode to this new medium and demonstrate our strong support for this art expression. – Michael Bouhanna, Specialist, Head of Sale at Sotheby’s

With his upcoming collaboration with Sotheby’s, Don Diablo continues to cement his position as one of space’s most innovative leaders, having only entered the NFT sphere in March this year and already holding a position in the top ten most valuable crypto art pieces in the world.
