NFT Culture started with the idea that NFTs and art could change the world. When we starting thinking about the ideas of what NFT Culture would represent it always started with the art. Most of the NFT Culture team purchased their first NFTs on Nifty Gateway. Nifty Gateway, like all platforms in a fast growing space has had missteps along the way, but still represents the best possible way to onboard non crypto-native individuals into NFTs. The BLOOM artists see that potential. If you look at their drops on Super Rare, Makers Place, Direct Mints, and more you will see floors far exceeding the prices presented in this collection. NFT Culture and Bloom see the potential of making Art accessible through platforms like Nifty Gateway and we are humbled that they would make their art accessible so new collectors can come and experience NFTs and culture.
Culture is the driver of Art and Art is reflective of the Culture of the period. If you asked me a year ago that we would get to meet and interact with so many incredible artists over the past year I would have called you crazy. This week is the culmination of a lot of work and a lot of friendships. We are honored to be presenting BLOOM Chapter I & II on Nifty Gateway.
The first drop is title Chapter 1 and launches today. You can learn more about the artists involved in todays drop below.

I’m Stephan Duquesnoy, and I’m a digital art lecturer at the University of Arts Utrecht and digital artist in The Netherlands.
