Las Vegas, NV – December 6, 2019 – Franky Aguilar, Las Vegas-based tech-savvy, artist has entered a strategic partnership with KnownOrigin to verify I million dollars’ worth of art sales on the blockchain. This new venture will see the first digital Certificate of Authentication tokenized on KnownOrigin replacing the tradition signed paper documents that are normally used by galleries and artists to prove ownership of their artwork.
He hopes to achieve this milestone by the summer of 2020. Also in March 2020, Franky will be throwing a large event in his gallery at www.9thgalleryarts.com to showcase his Las Vegas themed pop art.
“This body of work will be one of my largest projects to date. As always, I am looking to push the edge of physical to digital application, and this time I will be eternalizing my physical works of art on the blockchain,” said Franky Aguilar.
Franky is a practicing artist and has been working in the tech industry for the past 15 years, now living and working in Las Vegas. The artist recently opened a new gallery/studio where he is producing and selling physical artworks. Franky has always been fascinated with combining physical and digital art concepts, making this project a unique one.
Blockchain technology, as a decentralized, distributed, and public, digital ledger, is used to record transactions across many computers so that any involved record cannot be altered retroactively. Blockchain is a secured platform and Franky is on a mission to place Certificates of Authenticity of his artworks on the blockchain by partnering with KnownOrigin. By this, Franky will be able to sell his physical artworks and send a Certificate of Authentication, which acts as a Certificate of Ownership, via blockchain to buyers. Making the provenance, authenticity, and proof of ownership indisputable. Transferring ownership of the physical piece along with the Certificate of Authentication will ensure the chain-of-custody for the collector and any future owners.
Franky is also pleased to announce his event that will be coming up in March 2020 in his Gallery at www.9thgalleryarts.com. The event is a solo art show showcasing Las Vegas themed pop art, where the multi-talented artist will be shooting a YouTube video with the design and art approach for 10 pieces each week. Starting on January 1, 2020, with a buzz around taking a new approach to Las Vegas, and painting historical places and events that he finds in Sin City.
