Auction introduction: Christie’s is honored to present Beeple | The First 5000 Days, a single-lot sale that marks the first time a purely digital work of art, also known as an Non-Fungible Token (NFT), has ever been offered by a major auction house. On 1 May, 2007, Mike Winkelmann, a leading digital artist best known as Beeple, set out to create and post a new work of art every day of his life going forward, and has not missed a single day in 13 years. These works, which are now known as Everydays, form one of the most celebrated bodies of work in the history of digital art. The First 5000 Days comprises every single individual image from Beeple’s first 5,000 Everydays arranged in a monolithic composition of the artist's own design. Running from 25 February to 11 March, this unique online sale is an important milestone in the development of the market for digital art.
