For the artists, participating in AMJ 2022 represents another milestone in their illustrious careers so far. “It’s another achievement in my journey as an artist to be featured in Art Moments Jakarta. I hope more people appreciate digital art as much as other types of art, and experience the fun of collecting NFTs,” said DIELA.

Commenting on the upcoming exhibition, TZ APAC Head of Marketing Jivan Tulsiani said: “Southeast Asian and Indonesian artists are actively embracing digital artworks in the form of NFTs, which have enabled them to reach new audiences, be fairly compensated for their artwork and be positive changemakers for their communities. We look forward to celebrating the spirit of innovation in today’s art space at Art Moments Jakarta. The Tezos exhibition welcomes everyone keen on enjoying the creations of some of the region’s top artists in the Tezos ecosystem, collecting a memorable NFT and understanding more about the medium.”
