The NFT boom has introduced some brilliant digital artists to the world. One of these is the digital artist, graphic designer, and animator Mike Winkelmann, known worldwide as Beeple. Not only has Beeple established himself in the NFT space he has also gained immense recognition in the traditional art world.
