Infinity Labs’ Featured Artists Making Waves on the Global Art Stage
Over the past weeks, we’ve been seeing our featured artists getting spotlight from prestigious awards and events around the globe. It brings us immense joy to see their work getting some well-deserved recognition, as their works have not only graced renowned exhibitions but have also made a significant impact in the art world.
Shoutout to three exceptional artists who have been recently recognized on a global stage:
Rachel ST Wood - for making it to Beeple’s Crypto Winter Wonderland in Charleston, South Carolina. It is a celebration of art, community, and resilience at Beeple Studios.
Lisanne Haack - for being selected as one of the artists in residence for the Solana exhibition at Art Basel in Miami. It is a leading global platform and an anticipating fall event connecting collectors, galleries, and artists.
Caroline Harroe - for being chosen as one of the artists for NFT NYC 2024 and for receiving a travel scholarship award to attend this prestigious event. It is a conference that brought together an incredibly collection of artists, collectors, and developers, focusing on NFTs.
