Introducing CryptoArt Week Asia (CAWA)
Singapore and the Metaverse 20-30 January 2021
CryptoArt Week Asia (CAWA) is a not-for-profit, artist-first endeavor - we aim to strengthen and forge bonds within the Asian artist community, expose the general public and potential investors in Asia to the cryptoart scene, and to promote Asian-based artists in Asia and abroad.
CAWA takes place from 20-30 January 2021 in Singapore and virtually in the metaverse, at various galleries on Decentraland and Cryptovoxels.
Asia is under-represented in cryptoart. While the majority transactions on the Ethereum blockchain happen in Asia, while very little of that is in art. Many Asian artists have not even heard of NFTs, and the barriers to entry are still too confusing. Many Western collectors have had little exposure to Asian crypto creativity up until now.
CAWA is a decentralised, artist-first, platform-agnostic, event - ultimately everyone should benefit – through sales, new artists being introduced, though public awareness and through a more vibrant cryptoart community. CAWA is aimed at artists living and creating in Asia, not ethnicity. The aim is to build a stronger art cryptoart scene in Asia. Anyone is permitted to put on an event or host a showing so long as it meets our Code of Conduct. Reach out on Discord for more information and to get your gallery or event listed.
Though in no way affiliated, we aim to capitalize on the heightened art awareness in Singapore, by running in parallel with Singapore Art Week. Our HQ in Singapore will be the beautiful and cool Kult Yards, near China Town. Known for it's connection to the underground music and art scene. We will be projecting all the artworks on the weekends of the 22/23 and 29/30 January.
If you have a gallery in the metaverse and like to offer your space to exhibit please get in touch. and chat with us on Discord.
