Crypto Art Curation with Martin Lukas Ostachowski
Crypto Art Curation with Martin Lukas Ostachowski

Martin Lukas Ostachowski is a crypto artist who explores geometric abstraction and minimalism. He also documents the blockchain and crypto art history on his website. We discuss his business background, the role curation plays in crypto art, and his latest async art drum.

We chat about starting his own web design agency at 13, how art myths are made, and whether or not Michelangelo made forgeries.

Martin also shares the new use he found for his high school sketchbook and what radio and TV have in common with NFT and galleries.
