Let us remember that NFTs are a technology applies mainly to objects of art. This technology is mainly based on the cryptocurrency Ethereum, launched in 2015, which allows the development of smart contracts on its blockchain.

A physical showroom for nonfungible tokens is set to open in Riga, Latvia, where NFTs of street art from around the globe will be put on display.

The gallery is being launched by Kiwie 1001, an NFT project born from the Latvian street art collective of the same name.

The lead business strategist at Kiwie 1001, Kristaps Vaivods, said hosting the tokens in a physical location would also help spread awareness of NFTs while allowing artists to get noticed.

“While NFTs have quickly jumped into the mainstream, there is still a lot more work left to be done to inform the public on their benefits and applications,” said Vaivods.

“We’ve launched the NFT showroom to help other artists get noticed and spread awareness of this new artistic revolution. NFTs open many doors in terms of creative ways of defining ownership where it used to be impractical, and they allow smaller artists to make a living without necessarily catering to large collectors,” Vaivods added.

Let’s Talk About Kiwie 101

First KIWIE fat monster was painted back in year 2006 as a prototype for a real-life street art game concept on Riga-city walls.

Multiple sausages were “hidden” around the city and a monster like creature was on a quest to find all these sausages to eat them.

To this day, over 1000 KIWIE monsters have been painted on walls and other objects.

KIWIE is one of the first street artists in Latvia, who has based his artistic style on a multiform repetition of one specific image—Kiwie monster character, gaining recognition among artists not only in Latvia, but also abroad.

KIWIE is mixing street art with product, graphic, and fashion design in the bowl of contemporary art. The funny, usually smiling, pudgy critter on the walls and the streets all over the world is alive from 2005.
