Artem Mirolevich: The Palace of Poseidon (2021)
1Dutch Projects is pleased to present “The Palace of Poseidon”, a debut NFT collection of works by Artem Mirolevich. “The Palace of Poseidon” consists of three monochromatic slides (GiFs), in edition of a few multiples. The series is dropped on June 1, 2021, at the opening of Digital Art Month.
“The Palace of Poseidon” reveals the artist’s life-long fascination with the maritime subject matter. A signature Mirolevich whimsical tour-de-force, the works abound in outlandish details and unexpected compositions. “Ship in the City” features a tower-like vessel docked in the futuristic harbor, with an eccentric creature curiously monitoring the drop of its anchor.
In “Ship in The Sea”, a ship is gliding through tranquil waves among a multitude of maritime marauders. An underwater city where the god of the sea resides is looming at the bottom of the ocean. “Poseidon’s Head” is an imposing portrait of the ruler of the underwater kingdom.
A contemporary artist par excellence, Mirolevich navigates digital space with the same ease as the realm of brush, pencil, and paper. “The Palace of Poseidon” retains the unique expressive quality of the artist’s physical work, enhancing his signature attention to detail and superior craftsmanship.
