Top 5 Best-Selling NFT Artists in the Market Right Now

An NFT artist can be any visual or performing artist (painter, photographer, video designer, musician, etc.) who makes a tokenized version of their digital (or sometimes physical) creation.

The recent hype surrounding NFTs has resulted in a flurry of modern-day artists leveraging blockchain technology to redefine art as we know it. However, not all NFT artists make it big, and those often tend to make the headlines. In this article, let’s dive deep into the market’s top 5 best-selling NFT artists.

Mike Winklemann

Mike Winkelmann, also known as Beeple, is an American painter who made history by selling the most expensive NFT ever at $69 million. His art regularly involves social and political commentary, usually through the use of pop culture personalities.

Trevor Jones

In February 2021, his Bitcoin Angel NFT made a mind-boggling $3.2 million, making him one of the top NFT sellers. His first NFT sold for $10,000. He has also collaborated with music sensation and film producer Ice Cube to create the Man vs. Machine collection, released in December 2021.

Victor Langlois

At 19, Victor Langlois, popularly known as FEWOCiOUS, already has a following and a successful profession in digital art due to the crypto art and NFT communities.

In June 2021, FEWOCiOUS set a global record when Christie’s website crashed due to the significant number of collectors eager to bring home the young NFT artist’s creations. FEWOCiOUS postponed the auction to prepare a better system for a large number of users. Not to mention FEWOCiOUS is the auction house’s youngest artist to be highlighted.

Micah Dowbak

Digital artist Michah Dowbak, also known as Mad Dog Jones, first made his name by printing physical versions of his work for the public to view.

Brands and collectors well received Dowbak’s works in the NFT space. Boardwalk was one of his first works auctioned off on Nifty Gateway in February 2021. It was a short video in Mad Dog Jones’ trademark cyberpunk aesthetic, complete with pulsating neon to evoke strong feelings. The NFT artwork sold for $388,888.
