CryptoArt Week Asia (CAWA) is a not-for-profit, artist-first endeavor - we aim to strengthen and forge bonds within the Asian artist community, expose the general public and potential investors in Asia to the cryptoart scene, and to promote Asian-based artists in Asia and abroad. CAWA takes place from 22-30 January 2021 in Singapore and virtually in the metaverse, at various galleries on Decentraland and Cryptovoxels.
Asia is under-represented in cryptoart. While the majority transaction on the Ethereum blockchain happen in Asia, while very little of that is in art. Many Asian artists have not even heard of NFTs, and the barriers to entry are still too confusing. Many Western collectors have had little exposure to Asian crypto creativity up until now.
CAWA is an decentralised, artist-first, platform-agnostic, event - ultimately everyone should benefit – through sales, new artists being introduced, though public awareness and through a more vibrant cryptoart community. CAWA is aimed at artists living and creating in Asia, not ethnicity. The aim is to build a stronger art cryptoart scene in Asia. Anyone is permitted to put on an event or host a showing so long as it meets our Code of Conduct. Reach out on Discord for more information and to get your gallery or event listed.
