Mint Gold Dust x Fake Basel

Last Friday, we celebrated Art Basel week with our community and showcased the Theo’s Gallery genesis collection at Fake Basel. Artists included Nathan SonicMr. Yuk, and more.  The collection also showcased a selection of RAREPEPES, including a set of 6 with the first NFT from CZ (PBOCPEPE) from 2017. The evening was a celebration of the strength of our artist and collector community that we have built over the last year. Check out highlights from the event below.

Along with a live music performance from Otto Von Schirach, we hosted an exclusive one-lot auction, “The Theo Phone.” This iPhone was a mystery lot loaded with an exclusive selection of rare NFTs from Theo Goodmans’s personal collection. In the end, the phone went to Crypto Art collector and advisor Fanny Lakoubay.
