Top 10 Best-Selling NFT Artists

Last updated 25th May 2022

Art has a different definition depending on whom you ask.

In that sense, it can be a diverse range of human activity that is expressed in a creative and thought-provoking way.

While it can be beautiful, there is also a dark side that needs mentioning.

That’s because art can be notoriously difficult to sell and those that do sell for millions of dollars typically come from artists who are long dead.

In many cases, the artists themselves were never appreciated in their own time and died in poverty.

One of the most well-known cases of this tragedy pertains to Vincent van Gogh who died pennilessly but whose art has now sold for hundreds of millions of dollars.

However, a recent development in art and technology has flipped this notion on its head.

NFTs or non-fungible tokens have enabled artists around the world to generate substantial amounts of money while they are still alive.

Many more have been able to earn a living from their art sales which was not a possibility before NFTs hit the mainstream.

A whole new generation of art collectors has been created and communities of supporters have formed around the artists.

So much so that in just two short years, NFT artists are already catching up to the most well-paid living artists in the world today.

In this article, we take a look at the top 10 best-selling NFT artists who are making a name for themselves.
