AI and digital art: news from the NFT world


Yesterday, a consortium of Web3 companies officially announced the September 20 for NFT day. From now on, it will be an annual moment for the Web3 community to collectively teach people the value of blockchain-based experiences.

On this date in 2017, the main protocol behind NFTs – ERC-721 – was originally released by Dapper Labs CTO Dieter Shirley alongside the first use of the term “non-fungible token”. Since that time, technology has become a $11.3 billion industry.

As we always keep our readers up to date with the latest trends, we won’t miss any of the recent creations from the Art-addicted crypto-communities.

NFT news in the world of digital art

This month, the 2022 edition of New York Fashion Week officially came to a close. Throughout the five day event we managed to see some of the biggest names in fashion like Tom Ford, Tory Burch, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors shares his latest insights and visions for 2023 and beyond. What connected the fashion industry as a fundamental trend was Web3 and more precisely NFT.

Electric Feel lit up New York during New York Fashion Week with 400+ attendees who enjoyed the chandelier-lit rooftop lounge which was designed to showcase Spring 2023 fashion trends and collections with a live model presentation paired with digital twins available for immediate purchase and virtual try-on at using the latest augmented virtual reality experiences.

Max Kellymodernist co-founder, said:

“Throughout history art movements have influenced fashion and today technology is the primary influence on the future of commerce. Artists, designers and technologists are embracing non-fungible tokens as a modern medium to ensure future-proof fashion,” says Casey Golden, Founder of Luxlock. “NFTs that solve real-world problems will shape the future of culture and commerce.”

Over the past five days, some of the world’s biggest brands and designers have launched a litany of Web3-focused projects and initiatives. Brands are moving towards “phygital” offerings that bridge the physical and digital worlds, and the fashion industry is uniquely positioned to take full advantage of this tech fashion trend.

The fashion industry has started working intensively on Web3 and NFTs over the past few months. For instance, Gucci branches already started accepting crypto payments in August. At this year’s New York Fashion Week, attendees were able to discover new releases and visions around the Web3-driven future.

While it’s great that the fashion industry is embracing technology, we’re also seeing new trends in how art is created by communities.

Recently, we’ve started to see more and more platforms created on the text-to-art model, which simply describes the e-art-facts you’d like to see or better said – the art you imagine.

Of course, in order to create something unique, you have to open your mind and start being descriptive and creative by putting words in order that might end up being a unique e-art-fact.

The innovation brought by the Midjourney platform

A good example of such a platform is Mid Road, which can be tested as a free trial of several arts. Midjourney is an independent research laboratory exploring new mediums of thought and developing the imaginative powers of the human species.

There are two ways to experiment with the tools: the Midjourney bot, which you can use to generate images, and the web appwhere you can find a gallery of your own work and other users’ creations.

Once you start using our tool, you will be able to create a limited number of images before having to subscribe. You will have around 25 free uses from the /imagine command or other requests (variations, upscales). These uses are also called “jobs” or “GPU-minutes”.

However, there are still artists who prefer to use more software that allows them to create unique and handmade digital artwork.

It seems that the creative minds are unstoppable and are constantly creating new and innovative ideas and exploring new areas where this revolutionary driving technology can be applied.
