How to break the existing concept of art to open the door to the metaverse?
A creator since the age of 13, Don Diablo discovered at a young age how to make music with a computer when he didn’t have people around him to form a band together. From his work in audiovisual journalism and videos to NFT sculptures, Diablo poses questions through his art in the collective quest for a metaverse that brings the digital and physical together. In conversation with Max Moore, Diablo takes us deep into his art and music practice. He talks about what it means to be a futurist, dissolving the boundaries between music, art, fashion and tech; reimagining the position of creator and consumer; and why the metaverse and all that comes with Web3 is not just hype but something he has worked towards his whole life.
Enrol in this K11 Konversation now to discover the potentials in the intersection of Web3 and art!
