GET STARTED – ARTISTS –
The BASQUY NFTs Project
The first NFT collective exhibition of our gallery could only take up one of the most famous icons of contemporary art, namely Basquiat.
Basquiat was a pop icon, cultural figure and one of the most important exponents of American graffiti and neo-expressionism.
Our collective exhibition aims to stimulate the artists selected by us to create their own version of a portrait of Basquiat, creating NFT’s using their styles and their creativity.
With the Basquy exhibition, we are thrilled to start our NFT journey with a project that involves the great diversity and talent of artists from all over the world.
With this project, Artespace Gallery also promotes the Venice Biennale 2022, giving a free entrance ticket to those who purchase a BASQUY NFT
ARTESPACE GALLERY & VENICE BIENNALE 2022
ARTESPACE GALLERY will provide free tickets for the VENICE BIENNALE 2022 to those who purchase an NFT from the BASQUY project and want to visit the Biennale.
How to buy NFT’s ?
We know the NFT market is a new, evolving space for many art
collectors. Don’t know how to get started? Let us walk you through:
1. Create a Wallet and Install Metamask
In order to buy NFTs, you will need your own wallet and in this case
Metamask—a browser extension—to connect that wallet to
websites like Opensea.
Metamask has made it simple to install their browser extension and
create your first wallet address, all in one process.
To begin, go to metamask.io and follow the instructions. When you
get to the step to reveal your secret recovery phrase, be sure to
only write it down (no photos, or saving it to your computer or
phone!) and to store it somewhere safe.
2. Buy Crypto
To start, you will need ETH, the native cryptocurrency of the
There are two ways to transfer funds to your Metamask wallet. You can buy ETH directly on Metamask using a credit card or deposit funds from a cryptocurrency exchange.
- Buy Direct on Metamask via Credit Card (The easy way)
a) Just open Metamask und click Buy.
b) You will have now to decide the amount in ETH you want to buy with your local currency. (Remember to buy enough Ethereum to cover the NFT cost plus additional fees such as Gas fees, Service fees 2.5% and Creators fees 10%.
c) You will see now the transaction fees and the total amount to be paid via Credit Card and you will need to confirm it.
d) You will be asked now to register your Personal details, Credit Card and Proof of ID, Proof of Address and a Picture of you.
e) After all verifications you will receive the deposit of ETH in few minutes.
f) Now that you have ETH on your metamask wallet, you can start buying NFTs on Opensea.
g) Just open opensea.io page and connect your Metamask wallet and start buying…
2. Buy from an exchange. Kraken, Coinbase, Binance or other exchange
If for any reason you are unable to purchase ETH directly via metamask, you can choose this option.

- Click on the “withdraw” button in the “Funding” section.
- Find crypto you would like to transfer (selecting or typing)
- Paste your MetaMask wallet address.
- Enter the amount you would like to transfer.

If you do not have an account with an exchange company, you will need first to open one, please find out on the internet how to open an account on an exchange for example with Kraken
Where is the NFT I bought?
After purchasing an NFT on Opensea.io, it will be shown on your Opensea account. You can now keep it there or try to sell it again, or transfer it to your Metamask Wallet.
