creator economy was born online communities sprang   up across the world supporting previously unknown 
artists who have now found fame and riches in this   new era of digital art nft was even named word of 
the year by colin's dictionary but the question   we all want answered is will nfts maintain their 
popularity and if they will which artist should   we even be looking at there's tons of talent 
across the nft space so we can't say for sure   but we've put together a list of 10 of the best 
and most promising nft artists out there today   so let's get into it so the first one on our list 
today is pack chief among the many mysterious and   enigmatic characters operating in the nft space is 
pack pack who also goes by Murat Pak is a pioneer   in the digital art in nft space known for adopting 
a clean geometric style as seen in the black and   white circular image they use in a place of 
a personal photo pack reportedly keeps their   identity hidden to drive attention towards their 
art and away from their personal life many of us   haven't heard much about pack right up until late 
last year when soda bay's auction house announced   an upcoming auction for pax work while Beeple 
was hogging the limelight after his multi-million   dollar auction back in march of last year pac 
was hard at work developing their new nft project   called merge the merge collection used a novel nft 
mechanism where investors bought up 266 445 units   of mass in each unit of their own nft once the 
merge kicked off your mass would start combining   in your wallet eventually forming a new larger nft 
from your collection and the more mass you bought   the larger your merged mass nft would appear to 
be pak had been hinting at a mysterious project   all the way back since july of 2020 and investors 
were not disappointed more than 28 000 art fans   collectors and investors took part in the merge 
the auction raised just shy of 92 million dollars   far surpassing people's record although whether 
the merge counts as a single artwork is debatable   although it's not clear what pax working on right 
now they are definitely a digital artist to watch   if you've heard about nfts you've no doubt 
heard about people Mike Winkelmann aka beeple   works out of south carolina usa and was by far 
the most talked about digital artists in 2021   and for good reason by the end of march last 
year people had already sold 845 artworks for   more than 113 million dollars much of which 
came from a sale of a single artwork called   every days the first five thousand days every day 
sold for christie's auction house on march 11th   for an eye-watering 69 million three hundred and 
forty six thousand two hundred and fifty dollars   despite the sale making him one of the wealthiest 
living artists today people hasn't slowed down if   anything he's actually working harder in november 
people again collaborated with christie's to   auction off a new artwork called human one which 
features a lone astronaut striding through various   barren and dystopian settings and eventually 
sold for 29 million dollars unlike every days   human one also included a sculpture to permanently 
display the nft called a kinetic video sculpture   people will keep remote access to and creative 
control over the artwork forever allowing it   to evolve over time and that brings us to the 
next one on our list which is x copy x copy is   a well-established nft artist with a really unique 
and interesting style his style varies massively   from piece to piece but much of his existing works 
contains a mixture of cartoonish illustrations and   vibrant colors overall there's a strong punkish 
feel to his work with lots and lots of neon   xcopy's work depicts a wide variety of subjects 
but you'll usually find a few neon skeletons   and hallucinating frogs dotted around his work the 
artist bio explains that his art explores death   dystopia and apathy through distorted visual loops 
like pak x-copy uses a pseudonym but has revealed   that he's based in london uk there's also a strong 
meta element to xcopy's work as seen in the right   click and save as guy which highlights the wide 
misunderstandings around crypto art and nfts   xcopy's success in the nft arena over the past two 
years parallels the success enjoyed by the global   nft movement one of his works titled a coin for 
the ferryman sold for a hundred and thirty nine   dollars back in 2018.

But towards the end of last 
year the same nft sold for more than six million   dollars worth of eath making xcopy one of the most 
successful nft artists to date makai daobak better   known as mad dog jones is a canadian artist and 
photographer mad dog's artworks combines sci-fi   elements with dystopian themes and often features 
a strong cyberpunk element maddox prefers to work   from original materials usually rendering 
his artworks from photographs or drawings   the canadian artist made his name in the digital 
art world by sharing his content across social   media but only dived into nfts in 2020. his first 
nft collection included 100 r works each of which   sold for a modest one dollar a piece mad dog's 
groundbreaking and best known work is replicator   which sold for an impressive 4.1 million dollars 
and offered the first multi-generational nft   experience as implied by its name the nft artwork 
can generate new and unique nfts every 28 days but   only up to seven generations at which point 
none of the nfts will produce any more nfts   whoever owns replicator can either hot all their 
newly generated nfts or sell them for a profit   mad dog is a well-known and active member of 
the nft community and even tweeted that 2021   was the year beeple became a household name and 
who knows maybe in 2022 mad dog jones will be a   household name there are vanishingly few 13 year 
old self-made millionaires but nyla hayes counts   herself among them given her youth there isn't 
much that we can say about haye's life so far   other than that she began drawing at 4 years old 
and started her iconic long neckies collection   age nine as the name suggests hayes nft 
collection features hundreds of long-necked women   a mixture of celebrities family members and 
originals she said my long neckies stand for   diversity and women from all around the world 
it's meant to make people comfortable in their   own skin and it's meant to make young girls feel 
powerful about being themselves when asked why the   long neck by business insider hayes revealed the 
quirk comes from a love of a particular dinosaur   the brontosaurus hayes has already earned a 
whopping 5.7 million dollars in eath thanks to   her moon-bound digital art career and was recently 
named as time magazine's first artist in residence   in her new role hayes will be responsible for 
cultivating a collection of a thousand unique   pieces based on magazines women of the year and 
will include artworks depicting michelle obama   beyonce and others Fewocious whose real name is 
victor langlos is another young artist who enjoyed   their breakout year in 2021.

The seattle-based 
artist sold his first painting at just 17 years   of age and through a series of successful nft 
drops he accumulated an enormous 17 million   dollars which allowed him to move away from his 
hometown of las vegas lane lucy's best known   artworks explore personal vulnerable themes in the 
artist's life and combine a surrealist style and   vivid color scheme langlois bio explains that 
his art represents snapshots of his memory and   a mirror into his heart one of his latest pieces 
titled hello i'm victor Fewocious and this is my   life went on sale through christie's auction house 
in june of last year the collection included five   lots each of which detailed a year of his journey 
through adolescence and according to esquire the   christie's website crashed for the first time ever 
and the auction was rescheduled for two days later   nfts are really breaking the system but once the 
auction was able to take place the collection   sold for just over 2.1 million dollars since 
then langlois has enjoyed continuing success   selling another work titled nice to meet you i'm 
mr misunderstood for 2.8 million dollars through   soda bay's auction house the soda based lot also 
included a physical copy of the artwork a custom   suitcase as well as some hand-painted clothing 
from langlois's up-and-coming clothing line   and the next one is isaac wright known in the nft 
space as drift and he first gained his notoriety   for climbing skyscrapers bridges and other high up 
places to take amazing photographs after serving   in the us army for six years wright struggled with 
ptsd but found scaling massive man-made structures   to be the only outlet which helped alleviate his 
suffering wright's iconic collection is titled   where my vans go and includes 117 nfts each of 
which is a photo taken from somewhere up high   in the united states the sole similarity shared 
among wright's photos is his fans hence the title   of his collection but unfortunately wright got 
into some legal trouble last year after police   in his hometown put out a nationwide warrant 
for his arrest for his spider-man-like escapades   wright's arrest was unusual urban explorers are 
typically only given a slap on the wrist for   climbing skyscrapers and bridges during the height 
of wright's legal troubles and after spending a   hundred days in jail his work was featured on the 
front page of the new york times since then wright   has become a leader within the nft community 
and has only positive words to say about the   new digital art movement describing it as a ladder 
of one person pulling another up and so far wright   has reportedly made around six million dollars 
from his nft collections and if you want to check   out some truly incredible and unique photos check 
out drift's collection on openc and that brings us   to the next artist which is shae the surrealist 
shaylin wallace aka shay the surrealist is a 23   year old digital artist from delaware usa the 
up-and-coming digital artist has been making   digital art since 2014 and started selling her 
work as nfts last year shay's artworks are mainly   surrealist as her twitter handle suggests and 
she specializes in manipulating stock photos   in adobe photoshop turning the ordinary into 
the extraordinary much of shae's work combines   human portraiture with natural elements like 
flowers woodlands sunsets and sky to symbolize   human emotions shea's work has been exhibited 
throughout the world including at the ocean   decade exhibition which was held at the unesco's 
headquarters in paris outside the nft space shay   worked with a number of famous brands including 
netflix adobe and recently amc where she designed   custom artwork for the walking dead dan jews whose 
real name is leopoldo d'angelo is a digital artist   art director and graphic designer based in milan 
italy dangerous artworks fall under the sci-fi   and futuristic banner and often feature dystopian 
cityscapes illuminated by neon lights the digital   artist explains that blade runner and ghost in 
the shell were two of his biggest influences and   that beeple is among his favorite contemporary 
artists in his career so far dengues has made   nearly 5 million dollars by selling his artworks 
as nfts and is the 5th best-selling digital artist   on the super rare marketplace dengues has also 
enjoyed a fair amount of professional success as   well having worked for the likes of adobe maserati 
and nvidia like a few other artists on our list   dengues is a active member of the nft community 
and recently revealed that the thing i'm most   proud of is the amount of people i've directly 
or indirectly onboarded the artist tweeted back   in december that he has big plans for 2022 and 
we're looking forward to seeing how those plans   worked out and that brings us to the last artist 
today which is kath simard and she is a explorer   digital artist and landscape photographer based 
in canada her photographs depict astounding   scenes and locations from some of the remotest yet 
mesmerizing areas from around the world and kath   doesn't have a huge collection of digital art 
available to buy his nfts just yet but the few   available artworks are selling for sums between 
70 000 and 300 000 on super rare and it's likely   that cath's nft artworks will remain scarce due 
to the nature of her work chiefly the difficulty   of getting to such remote locations when she's 
not capturing a rarely seen piece of the world   on film or working with sony or the north face 
kathleen's expeditions to places like patagonia   iceland and the canadian rockies on her website 
kath explains that each image is the result of   hundreds of kilometers hiked days exploring the 
wilderness and hours spent creating behind the   computer despite her short supply of nfts kath 
remains as a well-known artist in the nft space   and certainly one to watch out for in 2022
