Listen to this story

Collectors and traders spent $22 billion on NFTs last year, and the market is still growing. In India, creators are exploring the prospects that come with establishing their own NFTs. However, here, it is becoming more than a new monetisation tool and providing fans with more personalised access.

Despite the increasing recognition in art spaces, finding artists in this field can still be challenging. We did the digging and found some of the best artists in the Indian NFT scene to have on your radar!

Prasad Bhat

Bhat is known for his distinctive artistic capturing of faces. His viral GIFs have been published on several famous platforms. His partner’s timely suggestion propelled him to explore domains of creativity ranging from graphic design to stage/stall design for several premium Indian businesses, eventually leading to the development of Graphicurry — an independent artist company shop and design studio located in Bangalore.

She told Analytics India magazine about the first-of-a-kind exhibition she curated in collaboration with WazirX’s platform. The curators added an AR layer to showcase the paintings. According to Chakraborty, the NFT community is developing, and there is still a long way to go.

Siraj Hassan

The NFT artist stirred the digital space in 2021 with his Caged NFT collection on OpenSea. The series is inspired by Hassan’s fascination for glass snow globes. The dreamy effect of snow globes once stirred was a source of inspiration for the collection, drawing hints from nature, bold skull motifs and the mental state.
