PRESS RELEASE | HONG KONG, JULY 1, 2022 — A local creative label & Gallery YOUNGCLUB launched BRAX – the first gallery-created character, as an art series based on youth and artists.
In the image of a young artist, BRAX explores and grows in its adventure journey, creating a series of stories in the dreamland, vividly presenting the value and adventurousness of the young generation.
BRAX is a forever 17-years-old character keeping its identity hidden by wearing a doll costume.
It can be a character representing any of us in society. This 17-year-old teenager starts his own journey with its costume, arouses the resonance of young artists on the way of creation, and brings back memories of their youth.
Modern advancements in digital and online technology are changing the art market. Online events are becoming more popular than ever as they can be accessed by anyone from anywhere. By simply opening a screen, people are able to instantly access desired products and services from all around the world, which makes it easier than ever to engage with your artistic interests.
The art market is no exception to this trend. Over the past few years it has been strengthening its online presence, and despite an overall decline in sales, the online trade is actually at a record high, doubling in value from two years ago. It is therefore reasonable to expect further substantial growth in this sector.
At the heart of this online art world are OVRs.
When it comes to the modern art world, millennials have played a crucial role in the recent years.
After the pandemic, they tremendously helped the art market to recover from countless museum, gallery, and exhibition closures.
A report from Art Basel-UBS states that in the first half of 2021, millennials spent the most on art, helping to boost the much needed recovery of the market.
Sales were also up by 10%, with millennials doubling the buying power of Gen X, and spending four times more than baby boomers!
It may be obvious but still needs to be said – the benefits of NFTs for the entire art world are tremendous!
Art that doesn’t exist in a physical form can now be bought, sold, and collected, opening many opportunities for artists, collectors, and investor.
There are also great benefits to physical art from NFTs. Art museums and galleries now have the ability to earn additional revenue from their artworks.
NFTs are clearly helping to create a unique generational synergy between the old and the new art.
