SCOPE + YELLOWHEART
SCOPE has partnered with digital marketplace YellowHeart for a diverse curation of innovative NFT minted VIP tickets. Minted tickets will feature unique editioned artwork celebrating SCOPE’s New Contemporary program, presenting artists that define our cultural landscape across a variety of creative disciplines.
These unique 20th anniversary collector’s items will be available beginning in September exclusively on the YellowHeart marketplace and will be released in a very limited batch.
“In celebration of our 20th anniversary, SCOPE has partnered with digital marketplace YellowHeart to create a first of its kind Blockchain ticketing solution featuring a diverse curation of innovative NFT minted VIP tickets,'' said SCOPE Founder, Alexis Hubshman. “This unique set of minted tickets will feature exclusive editioned artwork by emerging and celebrated artists alike including CTWF (Coloring The World Foundation), a foundation inspired by the vision of Okuda San Miguel, who is the foundation’s honorary president and main ambassador. This partnership complements SCOPE’s New Contemporary program, a program that stands as a critical contribution to both global politics and local community engagement while celebrating new and diverse voices in the arts.”
Founded in 2017 by Josh Katz, Founder and CEO, YellowHeart is the first socially responsible live event ticketing and music NFT platform. YellowHeart is an autonomous, fully decentralized platform that runs on a public Blockchain – which enables artists and teams to identify, market, and sell directly to their fans.
FEATURED ARTIST | NYCHOS
NYCHOS creates art from deep within his soul. Deeply rooted in Graffiti and shaped by the visual inputs of his early years, his work comprises murals, fine art, illustrations, sculptures, and animations.
By the means of anatomy, NYCHOS investigates the living species across different contexts and different media. His favorite tool is the spray can, his favorite surface is large. Questioning contrasts, he unifies looseness and accuracy. Severity and irony. The inner and the outer world. The dark and the bright. And most importantly, life and death. Within his oeuvre, one embraces the other. All becomes one.

FEATURED ARTIST | SWOON
Caledonia Curry, aka Swoon, is a Brooklyn-based street artist. Drawing on both realistic
and fantastical elements, Curry has been transforming the world with her immersive
installations, wheatpaste portraits, and community-based social justice projects for the
last two decades.
While Curry’s work has adorned the walls of more classical institutions—including New
York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and the Tate
Modern—her overarching aim is always to create accessible art that transports
audiences while simultaneously shedding light on pressing social and environmental
issues. Most recently, she has begun exploring visual storytelling through film and
Curry on the digital initiative, “For the first time, I have created a body of work that lives on a screen. After so many installations that come apart after only so many people see them, I wanted to make something where what you see in pictures is what you were meant to see, not an after image of a “you had to be there moment”. It’s opened up so many avenues, and I’ve been enjoying figuring out the various ways that these works can be shown, from the traditional blacked-out theater space of a museum, to the new ways that Superchief is exploring to share digital works.”

FEATURED ARTIST | LOGAN HICKS
Logan Hicks deals with the urban landscape in his work. His intricate stenciled murals depict the nuances of city life that epitomize the urban existence. Based on pictures, Hicks creates stencils with usually more than five different layers, cut out piece-by-piece, and painted one on top of each other. The result is hyper-realistic works showing urban situations in an exceptional nocturnal light.

FEATURED ARTIST | RELM
Relm is an oil painter and amateur sculptor born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and raised in NYC. Her work ranges from erotic dream-like and desolate settings to unique twists on basic portraiture. The beings she creates are innocent outcasts, exiled into their fairytale worlds. Every piece is a small glimpse into their destitute lives. Behind each set of doe eyes and pouty lips, there is a background full of diverse emotions and individual experiences to connect to.

FEATURED ARTIST | ENTES
ENTES (Joan Jimenez Suero) lives and works in Lima, Peru. With a long trajectory in the street art scene, his work has been displayed in Germany, France, Portugal, Spain, UAE, Cuba, Dominican Republic, and the American continent.
During his artistic practice, the roots in front of the gaze of that minority, of the other, have been evident; consequently, the presence of symbols and signs in relation to elements that coexist with a complex city such as Lima; violence, inequality, and above all social injustice, demand from the Latin American viewer a relationship of belonging to the city they inhabit in a current context
The transversal axis that the artist proposes in his work is to transfer from his interpretation, the dialogue that a city establishes with art, according to its own means of representation, such as posters, tags, scratches, phrases, etc.
ENTES has decided to step aside and leave the crossroads behind on a slightly different path, and we, its audience, are assisting in the development of its search. The artist takes fundamental elements of graffiti and does with them what he thinks he should do; whether the result is graffiti seems secondary. It is very clear where ENTES comes from, but not where it is going.
Without a doubt, his work has graffiti and its history as a context. In this framework, we find personal options such as the vindication of an Afro-Peruvian identity, and of a Hispanic-American identity within graffiti. Emerging from a context as harsh and difficult as that of New York graffiti of the 1970s, that of Lima and Callao, ENTES seems to have traveled almost the entire formal path of the genre.

FEATURED ARTIST | KATHIE OLIVAS
Kathie Olivas is a multi-media narrative artist who resides in Algodones, NM. She began drawing portraits as a child and found an extreme love for creating from her imagination a world that did not exist in her own reality, often driven by her connection with the alter ego and reflective of her own experiences with a rare genetic disorder.
A dark blend of early American portraiture set in post-apocalyptic times, her paintings and sculptures are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality. Her wide eyed children and anthropomorphic creatures are meant to evoke a nostalgic reaction that reflects isolation and uncertainty, yet they also act as empowered alter egos. While these characters explore their new lonely worlds, they double as our narrators capable of developing their own defense mechanisms.

FEATURED ARTIST | DIANA SINCLAIR
Diana Sinclair is a Black queer teen creative based in New Jersey. Although experienced and awarded in many mediums, Sinclair is currently focusing on her video-portraiture and experimenting with new mediums. Her work chiefly focuses on identity and the social issues she’s surrounded by. Sinclair (b. 2004) has been engaging seriously in the arts since she was nine, with her first professional art show debut occurring at the age of fourteen. She has since studied several different mediums at institutions such as SVA, NYU, and the Academy of Art University. In November 2020 she was selected as a YoungArts 2021 Finalist in Photography.
After joining the NFT space early in the year, she established herself as one of the youngest curators in the metaverse by curating the global NFT exhibition “The Digital Diaspora” in June. This exhibit showed the weekend of Juneteenth at Superchief Gallery NFT in NYC, and has been covered by notable media like Teen Vogue, The Guardian, Hypebeast Art, and more.
Sinclair on the project, "SCOPE has long embraced the avant-garde in the art world, so I think it’s perfect that on their 20th anniversary they’ve taken on the new artistic landscape. This collaboration with SCOPE is a merge of both the physical and digital art spaces, which is not only exciting, but a display of how well the two can come together and what impact that will have on our future. I’m absolutely honored to be included in such a monumental show and participate in this movement through SCOPE."
