The Other Avatars

Monty Preston led the curation and production of Saatchi Art's genesis NFT project, The Other Avatars, which was the largest collaboration of artists in a single NFT project to date in early 2022. The project involved 154 artists from 35 countries worldwide, 50% of whom were women, working together to produce an art-first PFP collection of 2523 avatars based on the self portraits of Vincent Van Gogh. In addition to curating the list of participating artists, Monty guided artists through the creative process, helping them to create high quality, unique works of art for this one-of-a-kind drop, and educating them about NFTs and blockchain technology.
