Anna Condo NFTs
Anna Condo is known particularly for her photography and floral portraits. She describes flowers as her “ultimate muse”. Last year, Condo ventured into this digital world for the first time with Tulip 1637, a series of NFTs made in collaboration with an anonymous group of cypherpunks.
With this latest presentation, titled Flower Gang, 1stDibs highlights new and established artists working in the fields of dance, music, illustration and painting, among many other genres.
Anna Condo spoke about her passion for flowers, by saying: “With flowers, I have learned so much about myself and others, about joy and abundance, about life and death. To me, flowers have a spirit and a soul. I agree with the late Carl Sagan on nature: ‘We’re made of the same stuff.”
