Kaws, Retna and Hirst at 'XXI'

LONDON Banksy, Jeff Koons and Damian Hirst are just some of the luminaries showing at ‘XXI’, a landmark contemporary art exhibition launched at the new HOFA Gallery in London’s Mayfair.

Running until 5 March it promises to be the world’s first asset-based tokenised contemporary art exhibition, using cutting-edge blockchain technology and cryptography to access coveted blue-chip contemporary art.

Kaws

At ‘XXI’ rare and unseen works by contemporary artists such as Kaws, RETNA and Damian Hirst are set to cause a stir. These include the Blame Game Portfolio, a set of 10 prints by Kaws which has been shrouded in mystery since its shadow début in 2016. Its sprightly colours have the intrigue of a jigsaw puzzle, both playful and ominous. Blame Game is poised to be a crowd favourite and is the most valuable artwork on display at ‘XXI’.

RETNA’s Los Ne El Barrio (headline image) also brings rarity to the exhibition with its abstract lettered painting, finished with rare blue diamond dust in the abstract art sought so many art connoisseurs.

Heart Spin Painting

The radial symmetry of Heart Spin Painting by Damian Hirst evokes the large reproduction spin painting which covered the floor of the stadium for the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games of 2012. 

 ‘XXI’ features a portfolio of carefully sourced artworks collectively worth more than $1M and other participating artists include Joseph Klibansky, George Condo, Zhuang Hong Yi and Ilhwa Kim.

HOFA co-founder, Elio D'Anna, said "We are proud to unveil this project which has been over 12 months in the making. It’s going to be an extravaganza of contemporary art. We are bringing the crème of contemporary art together for a ground-breaking show which we know viewers will enjoy.”

HOFA’s new gallery is at 11 Bruton St in Mayfair wih ‘XXI’ running until 5 March 2020.
