What is Generative Art?

Generative art is digital art that is created through the use of computer codes or artificial intelligence software which generates diverse artworks that have a similar origin but are different based on their patterns and appearance.

Popular Generative Art

You need not go too far before you discover that some of the most important NFTs around are actually made as generative art. In fact, NFT collections are created in this manner. When you think of generative art, some of the first to come to your mind should include Bored Apes Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Meebits, Azuki, and Mutant Apes, among others.

Primary Sale is only the Beginning

NFT collections are merely tools for creating a community around an NFT project. This sense of community begins from the moment the NFT launches in a marketplace. Collectors are bound to join project communities and follow them across social platforms.

Bottom Line
