Peter Bowles on the Foundation of NFT Arts, His PR Career, and AR/VR in Crypto

Peter Bowles is a seasoned PR specialist, an early adopter of online marketing, a pioneer of viral marketing, and the founder of NFT Arts.

From setting up an account for the youngest blogger in the world to creating a Bitcoin college foundation for a baby, Peter Bowles is known for his PR stunts. He was one of the early adopters of online marketing and he managed to create several viral campaigns, beginning in the early-2000s.

Peter likes to be early on stuff, so it’s no wonder that he already dipped his toes into the ocean that’s crypto art.

While most people would just open a crypto exchange, Peter’s plans are much more ambitious. He wants to open a gallery. An NFT gallery. One that would show the people what NFTs are. A platform that would allow Joe Average to dive into the world of crypto art.

Peter is currently building a VR gallery, but they also have a plan of opening a physical gallery. Join us, as we discuss the early days of the Internet, the importance of mental health, and his experience with the Woz and the RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
