Internationally acclaimed artist Daniel Arsham uses trailblazing NFT minting platform CXIP to mint his new NFT collection to be listed on Nifty Gateway, a premier NFT marketplace on 12/22 at 7:00 PM EST. It marks the first time that Nifty Gateway will issue NFTs minted by CXIP, the best-in-class NFT minting technology used by creators and businesses, known for coining the term MaaS (“Minting as a Service”).
Jeff Gluck, CXIP Founder and CEO, said:
“Nifty Gateway is a pioneering marketplace in the NFT space and continues to take strides in advancing their creator-first mission. Their landmark decision to use CXIP’s NFT minting is a major step forward towards empowering Web3 creators to have true creative ownership, cross-market royalties, and on-chain provenance.”

Daniel Arsham said:
“I’m excited to partner with groundbreaking platform CXIP as minter of my latest series of NFTs, Eroding and Reforming Digital Sculptures: Cars. In keeping with my other works, both physical and digital which operate on different time scales, these works use the time of specific rallies as their clocks, imagining a scenario at a well known race which may exist in the past, present, or future. I look forward to the evolution of the work CXIP and I will do together.”
Daniel Arsham’s uchronic aesthetic revolves around his concept of fictional archaeology. Working in sculpture, architecture, drawing and film, he creates and crystallizes ambiguous in-between spaces or situations, and further stages what he refers to as future relics of the present. This is the first time that a CXIP-minted NFT will launch on Nifty Gateway, one of the most successful marketplaces for NFTs. This past May, Arsham launched his first NFT with Nifty, Eroding and Reforming Bust of Rome (One Year) – a digital version of a sculpture from his most recent exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in New York that erodes over time.
Griffin Cock Foster, co-founder of Nifty Gateway, said:
“Daniel is one of the greatest artists of our time. NFTs are a medium of their own, and he makes excellent use of them as a medium. We are thrilled to be a trusted collaborator on this groundbreaking project, as well as leverage CXIP’s innovative minting software to issue NFTs for the first time on our marketplace.”

The launch of this NFT with Arsham and Nifty Gateway comes on the heels of a major new development for CXIP: On Tuesday, November 16, the technology company announced the CXIP DAO, the world’s largest coalition of NFT creators. Accordingly, every creator who has ever minted an NFT with Ethereum L1 will be able to claim CXIP’s upcoming airdrop and join the CXIP DAO. To help guide this process, an advisory council has been established composed of leading artists and advocates; including Pharrell Williams, Jen Stark, Daniel Arsham, Chad Knight, and Justin Aversano.
