Artists Back Digital Auction Room

“David Hockney’s evangelising of pixelated masterpieces has finally rubbed off on key movers in the art world. Some of Britain’s most bankable celebrity YBAs, including Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst (his diamond-ed skull is pictured), Mat Collishaw, and Isaac Julian are behind a new digital art platform. [s]edition is website which will attempt to perform the combined roles of shop, gallery and an arty social media site. Potential buyers can log in for free to browse a gallery of limited edition digital artworks, which currently include an animated version of a 1503 Dürer watercolour by British artist Mat Collishaw, and a moving image by Shephard Fairey, whose ‘Hope’ poster of Barack Obama became the visual emblem of America’s most recent presidential election.”
