The name ARKPIA is a combination of the words Ark and Utopia. It symbolizes the company’s desire for artists and art lovers around the world to embark on a journey together, and embark on a figurative sheet towards a new type of digital utopia. ARKPIA’s strategy is to differentiate their digital art from technology developer-based NFTs by creating a global network with artists and releasing NFTs from a wide range of genres.
“I have been thinking for a long time about ways to recreate works of art in digital forms and bring offline collectors and Generation Z together in a digital ecosystem to spread the fundamental value of art,” he said. Yohan Choi, CEO and Creative Director of ARKPIA. With this in mind, I decided on Authentic and Friendly as ARKPIA’s core values. ARKPIA works tirelessly to represent the worldview, history and philosophy of a work of art from the artist’s point of view. But we also strive for more and more people to feel, understand and possess the value. Through ongoing collaborations with global artists, I believe that ARKPIA can set a course and a standard for how art will develop in this ever-growing Web3 ecosystem. “
“When I was offered to join the ARKPIA project, I became curious,” said Florentijn Hofman, who received global recognition for her giant floating Rubber Duck pieces. “It made me feel a desire to show my art in a room that is new and unknown to the public. I think many will be inspired by NFT art and be interested in being creative.”
“This is the ideal time for artists to gain recognition in the digital world through NFT art, which is unknown territory, filled with endless possibilities and is the best medium for it. I have been asked to participate in many projects, but I felt ARKPIA was the optimal choice, “said Sarah Beestona world-renowned illustrator.
“The project presented by ARKPIA is the next stage of evolution after offline art trade,” said the illustrator Gabriel Hollington, which enjoys great popularity among the Millennial generation and Generation Z (MZ). “It also provides a really favorable working environment for artists. The future of NFTs looks bright. It’s not just global brands that collaborate. Large companies are also actively participating.”

An open race for the artwork will soon follow at 09.00 on July 21st ET, followed by public minting at 09.00 on July 22nd ET. “I have decided to launch my NFT artwork through ARKPIA because ARKPIA has shown a high level of respect for, and consideration for, artists,” Jang said. “I expect tremendous growth in the NFT art market, and I hope I can spread unlimited positive energy around the world with our 3D Happy Heart.”
