DigitalArt4Climate Finalist: Kat Hassell
Discover “Storm”, COP26 NFT Collection. Enter the whitelist!
As cryptocurrencies and NFTs grow more mainstream, it is critical that we design systems that can sustainably harness their potential. In this spirit, the multi-stakeholder initiative DigitalArt4Climate is combining breakthrough eco-friendly blockchain technology with the mobilizing potential of art to support sustainable development and climate action.
Kat Hassell, the finalist in the DigitalArt4Climate ´21 and one of the leading artists at Exquisite Workers, is not only a pioneer in the developing field of NFTs, but also a strong example of how women all around the world are using their voices and talents to shape a better future.
Working in both figurative illustration, painting and recycled mixed precious metals, Kat Hassell works as an illustrator for a design studio in the UK and specializes in digital portraiture. Hassell draws the viewers in with her lively and emotive style, prompting them to consider the state of the environment.
Storm is no exception, with its twisted skull and dramatic design confronting us with the dire repercussions of climate inaction in the face of a rapidly escalating crisis.
“Storm is a warning and represents untimely death — that of planet Earth and all who inhabit it. The skull, which has long been a symbol of mortality and the brevity and fragility of life, represents us all,” says Hassell. “It melts against a backdrop of a stormy planetary fireball, reminding us of the climate disaster unfolding around us.”
On April 16, 2022 Seattle NFT Museum, USA opens the exhibition featuring Refik Anadol, GMUNK, Sara Ludy, Kyle Gordon, Roger Haus and Kat Hassell to highlight the climate impact of NFTs. Official auctions of the COP26 collection will happen further in summer 2022 on Polkadot and Kusama Blockchains. Read below how to collect the Storm.

“What insane heat it was when you were angry, right? Didn’t you feel everything burning? Calm down, that is alright. You still have a flame of Life left. It is the Life that makes you burn. Return to your body now and learn to rest…” — description by Elvis Marshall.
“The dystopian nightmare in a simple form. The figure looks like a human, but it might be the ‘other’. The house continues to take care of the necessary chores, but there is no sign of any people.” — by Kat Hassell.

“There is an easy, clean aroma of the brewed coffee in the evening air. The heads are boiling with memories. These heads are burning with dreams about traveling through South East Asia, a place both timeless and futuristic. The girls are laughing in the desert with joy.” — by Kat Hassell.
