Mike Winkelmann ( Beeple) art EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS sold with 69 million.
Beeple, aka Mike Winkelmann, is the creator of The Everydays: the First 5000 Days. Winkelmann created 5000 digital images for the Everydays series. A non-fungible token (NFT) associated with the transaction was sold by Christie's in 2021 for $69.3 million, making it the most expensive NFT ever sold.
As of May 2007, Beeple has been posting a new work of art online every day. For 5,000 days, he has created a digital picture every day without missing a beat.
A comparison of Beeple's Day 1 (1 May 2007) and Day 5,000 (7 January 2021) reveals his enormous progress as an artist. Everydays began with basic drawings. Once Beeple began working in 3D, they adopted abstract themes, colors, forms, and repetitions. Over the last five years, his digital pictures have become increasingly timely, often reflecting current events.
Metapurse NFT and MetaKovan creator Vignesh Sundaresan purchased it. The artwork was purchased for 42,329 Ethereum by Sundaresan.
Sundaresan and Winkelmann took advantage of the media frenzy surrounding the Everydays auction to drive sales of speculative assets associated with twenty other Beeple works. There have been accusations that the auction is a publicity stunt.
However, Sundaresan does not receive the copyright for the artwork. With a virtual museum online, anyone can view artwork via a web browser. Till today Everydays remains the most expensive NFT art.
