ROBNESS

ROBNESS (b. 1983) blazed a trail through the cryptoart scene with his audacious "#trashart" movement. It all began with a photomoshed trashcan, the 64-gallon toter, which he minted as an NFT. This seemingly mundane object sparked a digital wildfire, raising questions about art's value and challenging traditional art world norms. He further ignited debate with the controversial burning of Cryptopunk #2317, destroying and conceptually transforming the rare NFT into a "living sculpture" on the blockchain. These provocative acts cemented his status as a boundary-pushing artist, forever challenging our perceptions of ownership and value in the digital realm. But Robness's impact transcends mere notoriety. His piece, Bitcoin, a dynamic reappropriation capturing the cryptocurrency ethos of open source culture, earned him a coveted spot in the Centre Pompidou’s first NFT collection, a feat not just for him but for cryptoart as a whole. This landmark inclusion legitimized digital art within the hallowed halls of traditional institutions, paving the way for a future where pixels and blockchains interweave with brushstrokes and canvases.

Robness's legacy remains etched in the very DNA of cryptoart. A digital trashcan evangelist and a punk pyromaniac who forever altered the art landscape. With each click and burn, he reminds us that art, in all its audacious forms, can redefine value, spark debate, and ultimately, push the boundaries of what we call "art" itself.
