NFT (non-fungible tokens) digital art gallery Blackdove announced a collaboration with LG Electronics USA to deliver NFT artwork directly to LG Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema displays. The collaboration between LG and Blackdove will allow patrons to showcase their NFT collection as an in-home art installation.
“Working with Blackdove to deliver unique digital art to the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema was a natural fit for LG because we know the transformational power of their NFT art collection,” said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA’s vice president in charge of DVLED displays.
NFTs have become a new medium in the art market. The LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema owners will have access to five NFTs from Blackdove’s collection. The grand scale, color fidelity, and rich contrast make the home theater display an ideal canvas for NFT artwork. The LG displays create immersive experiences without an invasive and time-consuming custom design.
“LG has worked with Blackdove in the past to create fine art installations at galleries and art festivals around the globe. Now, with Blackdove on these luxury residential displays, we can bring the same kind of incredible visual experience into the home.”
The Blackdove NFTs were curated by Jess Constar, showcasing the different styles and subjects available. The NFT capsule collection includes work from Johnathan McCabe, Franck Lefebvre, and Jamie Scott. Users can manage their NFTs through the Blackdove app available on iOS, Android, and LG’s WebOS platforms.
“We want collectors to understand the value of the art form, and we want artists to have access to the best displays possible. To that end, we’ve hand-selected unique, tokenized artworks that celebrate the diverse range of styles and techniques found across new media from both emerging and established artists,” says Conatser “This partnership with LG will showcase the beauty of digital art, propelling the medium forward and shaping the future of living with digital art as NFTs.”
Blackdove comes pre-integrated with the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema out of the box. No additional hardware is required, with Blackdove offering LG dealers complimentary technical support during software and optional subscription setup.
