Anna Dart & Eka exhibit at NFT Liverpool 2022 selected by Paris Hilton
Adelia Art Gallery has launched the largest NFT exhibition in the UK “Guest Curator” running for 130+ days, starting from April 26 2022, featuring celebrities
NFT Liveropool show “Guest Curator” organized by Adelia Art Gallery started yesterday in the city of Liverpool, UK. This iconic event brings together TOP members of the fine, digital art community to select up to one hundred works each from those submitted on Twitter by artists.
Twenty curators invited by the Gallery’s owner, Amir Soleymani, have had a chance to propose their favorite artist from over 6K submitted profiles from all over the world to be on display for 5 days during the show.
The Liverpool Exhibition aimed to provide an opportunity for all artists to apply with their work curators consideration, regardless of their experience or status. Each curator was limited to selecting two pieces from artists already known to them, subject to certain criteria. The rest of the works should have been from artists who are still unknown, or who are struggling to be seen.
Micol — VerticalCrypto Art, DeeKay Kwon, Parin Heidari, Holly Wood, Keith Grossman, Joe Kennedy (Institut), r0yart, Gladys Garrote, Farokh Sarmad, Arran (divergence), Alexandra (NFTgirl), Reuben Wu, PAK, Kamiar Maleki, HUSH, Misan Harriman, Nima Sagharchi, Jon Sharples, ThankYouX, and Kate Vass and other renown figures in the NFT space and art industry faced a true challenge to select the best pieces.
Paris Hilton, famous Queen of pop culture and influencer, extremely active in the NFT space, has selected Paris. Her Story minted on Makersplace on Ethereum blockchain, the collaborative work of Anna Dart and Ekaterina Lestienne (Eka). It was the first time Paris Hilton met the creative duo.
About Anna Dart
Co-creator of the First NFT Contest for Climate DigitalArt4Climate at COP26 and co-founder of Exquisite Workers, Anna Dart is an unusual artist and curator who bridges creators, projects and institutions and brings a deep sense of purpose and her light in everything she does. Her art is a passionate call for better universal human connection and promotes ecological and social sustainability as well as mental health. Known for her striking magnetic portraits with an intelligent handling of creamy and elegant gray tones, Anna Dart searches for inspiration in contemporary dance, drama and Gaudí’s architecture and creates unique sensual visual experiences for the collectors around the world as well as for the Metaverse participating in the collective “Exquisite Corpse” creation.
Born in Ukraine, Eka is a French digital artist passionate about the harmony of colors and intense visual experiences. Eka melds the pieces of digitally transformed images together, mixing them and applying AI powered filters in order to create an intuitive fresh layered imagery defined as Crypto Baroque. Eka has been seeing an incredible success since she entered the NFT space.
Recently Eka became the selected artist to interpret HRH Princess Margaret’s portrait for the occasion of 20 years since HRH Princess Margaret’s death. Eka takes you with her in a tsunami of colours, where the Princess is younger, vibrant and screaming of her lust for life, a true vision of happiness and joy.
Last November Eka applied with her work The Wildfire to the DigitalArt4Climate Art Competition curated by Anna Dart, which was calling on artists from across the globe to unlock the capacities of digital art as we continue to build creative solutions in the face of climate change. This is how two artists met and made a duo which meant to shine at the NFT Liverpool 2022.
In addition to that, both artists showcase their work at the Seattle NFT Museum, the first NFT Museum in the world, as well as on on DoinGud, a community-curated platform inspired by and aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals at the 17 SDGs (Global Goals) virtual exhibit.
Selected work “Paris. Her Story.” on display at NFT Liverpool until May 8 2022
The selected artwork for the NFT Liverpool Exhibition 2022 by Anna Dart and Eka titled Paris. Her Story is truly sophisticated. The question left for the curious viewer is: What would Paris look like if She was a Woman? The digital artwork is based on the watercolour portrait of actress Aya Wolf created by Anna in her singature style.

“Guest Curator” Exhibit
Each curator of the Exhibit has five days to display their selection at the gallery and virtual space, enabling people unfamiliar with NFTs to understand what NFT art is all about, while simultaneously giving selected artists an opportunity to be seen.
“It’s going to be a unique opportunity for lesser known artists to show their creativity and receive the recognition they deserve. Guest curators, each of them have a strong voice and power within the fine and digital art space, can use their influence to help those artists,” shared Amir Soleymani, owner of Adelia Art Gallery and organiser of the exhibition.
The legendary exhibit starts with Paris Hilton´s iconic selection being on display until May 8 2022.
On the official press-release of the event, Soleymani stated that “the other aspect of this event is to see how different people from different backgrounds and cultures select art and define ‘curation’ in the Web3 and NFT culture.”
The NFT Liverpool Exhibition is held at Adelia Art Gallery, 57–61 High Street, L15 8HE, Liverpool, United Kingdom, and is open for visitors from 10am to 6pm everyday from April 26 and August 29, except preparation days which will be announced.
