$Whale and Breezy started a long-term collaboration to provide a narrative to the $WHALE's "The Vault", one of the largest and most valuable collections of NFTs in the entire space through art curation. Each month we will highlight a specific creator or theme, through rich visuals, high-profile artist interviews, gallery events, and more. The focus is to foster an interactive experience complete with catalogs, newsletters, and other media to explore. The artist of the month of February is Brendan Dawes.

For the month of February, BREEZY CURATES $WHALE presents Brendan Dawes, one of the masters of “the Art of form and Code”. Exploring the relationship with time and space and the interactions between the analog and digital world, his creations exist through the close cooperation between man and technology, fused in a single will.

The artist joined the Crypto community in 2020, fascinated by the infinite creative possibilities that go hand in hand with technological development and the possibility of creating a direct, therefore more intimate, bond with his patrons.

For this occasion, to celebrate this connection between collector and artist, $Whale shows its incredible collection of 39 works which represents an important cross-section of Brendan Dawes’ production.

There is always a feeling of suspension in Brendan’s works, temporary existence, and ephemeral. His work truly speaks the language of eternity.

"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard

Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;

Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear'd,

Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone:

Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave

Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare;

Bold Lover, never, never canst thou kiss,

Though winning near the goal yet, do not grieve;

She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss,

For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair!"

Ode on a Grecian Urn, John Keats

At the end of the month, as usual, our unmissable exhibition on the Arium platform.
