Deep co-founder Stephan Lebenson explains âThe art of AI and NFTs have ceased to be unusual curiosities and novelties, having now established a solid place in the history of art and gradually revolutionizing the framework of what is considered to be. an art of value and collection. With the rise of primary and secondary markets, there are now many artists whose works are made possible through innovative algorithms, deep learning, code and digital manipulation.
Big names in the AI ââart movement are also invited to speak at the event. These include Sophia Robot’s agent, multimedia artist and art director Graham Fink, who has spoken extensively about the dimensions of creativity and is a proponent of the generalist approach to life and art.

Emphasizing the revolutionary nature of generative art, profound co-founder Erin Lait said: âThe past few years have seen exponential developments in the field of AI and NFT art. We recognize and embrace this technology-driven art movement as a new frontier of art with incredible possibilities, and we are proud to be the world’s premier international art fair bringing together the main and defining voices of the AI ââart movement. “
Summarizing the importance of this art fair, deep co-founder Eulan To adds, âWhat we are seeing with the rise of generative AI art reaffirms the importance of art while expanding its boundaries beyond the norm and beyond our imaginations. This sparks debate about the role and status of AI, and as we try to make sense of the importance and perspective of this new frontier in art, there is a lot of excitement about it. that the future of digital art has in store for us. “
