achievements and hold a limited-time event “Warhol” tribute Presented by LOD. At this event, five specially selected digital works by Yukimasa Ida, a painter and contemporary artist, will be on sale for a limited time. All the digital works in “Level of Distance” presented by Mr. Ida at NFT are based on paintings by Mr. Ida. Among them, the 5 items that will be released for a limited time this time are a series based on the portraits of Andy Warhol, which Mr. Ida admired and painted in oil.
Andy Warhol expressed the mass society and consumer society of the 20th century as the theme.
Mr. Ida says, “The concept of mass production and mass consumption of NFTs is connected to what Warhol was doing at the time.”
Also, Andy Warhol’s art studio was named ‘The Factory’, which is a symbol of mass production.
Our company name “FACTORY” at NEW FACTORY TOKYO is also a tribute to this “The Factory”. By viewing the original drawings and the works presented at NFT side by side, you will be able to feel more deeply about Mr. Ida’s concept of “resolution.”
