Digital artist Mike Winkelmann, also known as Beeple, has opened Beeple Studios, a 50,000-square-foot digital art space in Charleston, South Carolina, to foster community among non-fungible token (NFT) artists.

Beeple made headlines in the early days of the NFT boom when he sold his most famous work, “Everydays: The First 5,000 Days” for $69.3 million in a Christie's auction in March 2021. It has remained one of the most expensive NFTs ever sold to date.

The opening event for Beeple Studios took place on Saturday and was done in partnership with art auction house Christie’s. The gallery walls were lined with artwork from NFT artists Fvckrender, XCopy, Pak, Victor Duarte, Refik Anadol and others.

According to the Beeple Studios website, Winkelmann will use the space to create his artwork. It also features a 13,000-square-foot gallery and 13,000-square-foot experiential space. “We wanted to build a space where we could program multiple different types of artists showcases and experimental community events,” the website says.

While the studio is not yet open to the public, it will allow people to register for time slots to visit the gallery.

Immersive, in-person digital art experiences have been on the rise in recent months as NFT art has found its place in prominent museums. In February, NFT collector and investor Cozomo de’ Medici donated 22 digital artworks to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Refik Anadol’s generative artwork “Unsupervised” has been on display in the New York Museum of Modern Art since January and is set to run through early April.
