ArtVndngMchn is a digital fine art collection that wraps curated, top-notch paintings and drawings into surprise NFT packages on the WAX blockchain. With its new Series 3 pack release launching February 26th, 2022, ArtVndngMchn is back to paint the world in all colors with fun and uplifting inspiration. Much of the Series 3 art will revolve around the theme of skateboards, fantastic cars, and other high-flying vehicles.

On this same day as the NFT pack release, many of the fine art pieces from this collection will be on exhibit in a Minecraft metaverse at The Brawl Gallery, where visitors have to fight monsters and complete mazes before they win the rare privilege of viewing this special exhibition. This 3D virtual gallery is located within the massive ArtVndngMchn Amusement Park in The Uplift World. Experiencing ArtVndngMchn Series 3 paintings in The Brawl Gallery is an art adventure to die for... because the in-game monsters may (virtually) kill you a few times before you make it through the labyrinth that leads to the Brawl Gallery's main exhibit hall.

As with each preceding pack release, a percentage of the revenue will be donated to help the poor through MERCYworldwide. To date thousands of dollars have been donated. For this series, 10% from the initial sale will go toward helping youth who are blind learn independent living skills at the Kiev School for the Visually Impaired!

Curated by award winning cartoonist Joe Chiappetta, cryptoart OGs as well as emerging artists have contributed some of their best artworks to this lively fine art collection. Artists included in Series 3 include Jennifer Barrett, Anna, Denise, Joe, and Luke Chiappetta, Caleb Cohen, Caleb Hudson, Sean O'Kana, Mike Rende, Melida Rios, Vanesa Stati, Fabi Yamada, Richard Yates, and Marko Zubak.

Each piece in this collection serves as stand-alone high-quality fine art... plus some of these pieces can also be blended through NeftyBlocks into even more stunning and rare pieces of artwork. The ArtVndngMchn series is a fine art experience with an unpredictably gamified NFT life of its own. Join in the fun now!

What Is ArtVndngMchn?

Series 1Series 2, Series 3 launches Feb 26, 2022

The first thing to understand about ArtVndngMchn is that it is a multifaceted art project. As soon as a community member tries to describe it, they are simultaneously correct--yet leaving out so much. That's because ArtVndngMchn has never been about just one thing.

In fact, ArtVndngMchn is many things. Like our lives, it has multiple dimensions. Yet all of ArtVndngMchn's aspects are art-related, meant to be uplifting, and shepherded by Joe Chiappetta, having been in the cryptoart space since 2015, and a cartoonist since the mid-1980s. In one sentence it can be summarized that ArtVndngMchn is fine art experience with an unpredictably gamified life of its own. It is where the lines between gaming and fine art are intentionally blurred into many new things.

So what are these many new things that have become ArtVndngMchn?

  1. Digitally wrapped and randomized packages of fine art NFTs from over 20 international artists. ArtVndngMchn was the first to do this with fine art NFTs. Much mentoring of emerging artists takes place through the many crytoart OGs in the project.

  4. An art project used to raise money for the poor through MERCYworldwide.
Drilling down into these varied components of the project, it is also accurate to say that ArtVndngMchn is...
  1. An Artwork Theme of Fun and Family
  2. A Pioneering NFT Collection
  3. A Game within Minecraft
  4. A Metaverse Event Destination
  5. An Interactive Art Performance

ArtVndngMchn Origins

Solidified under the project name "ArtVndngMchn," this ongoing series is widely know for its May 2021 on the WAX blockchain, consisting of hundreds of different fine artworks as NFTs, which sold out in seconds. New NFT pack collections come out at least twice per year.
ArtVndngMchn Propaganda Video is rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta
ArtVndngMchn Propaganda Video is rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta, available on AtomicHub where often the promotional pieces became works of art too.
However in the generic sense, art vending machine paintings and drawings released as NFTs by Chiappetta can be traced back much earlier.
Crypto-Art ATM is rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta
Crypto-Art ATM is rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta, available as part of the CrystalsCraft Collection in the early years of NFTs on Counterparty.
In 2018, early versions of art vending machines were created on Bitcoin/Counterparty, and later on Ethereum as well as EOS blockchains prior to the project's release on WAX.

In an even bigger-picture sense, ArtVndngMchn is a statement of human artistic development and progression in more ways than one.

The order of this creative human development online goes something like this:
  1. As it relates to fine art, the internet started as an art catalog.
  2. Then it became an art market via online ordering and shipping.
  3. Then it became an art creation tool through sites like Dada.art and others.
  4. Then, through the invention of rare digital art (later called NFT), the internet became an art vending machine.
  5. Finally, through the merging of all of the above, the internet became an art metaverse.
