Artivive x artèQ
Open Call for artists

BREATHE Artivive x artèQ

The past months have shown us how rapidly our daily lives can change. With environmental disasters, social outrages, and the global pandemic, we became aware of our responsibility to take action for building a better future. And to do this, we need to find the strength and capacity to BREATHE so that we can overcome limitations and use our full potential.

Artivive and artèQ are inviting you to be part of the first artists to be featured on the NFT auction house Ten artworks will be selected and sold at the official artèQ opening auction in October. They should showcase the important role of breath in our daily life and how it transforms challenges into opportunities.

The works are selected by the curator Caroline Messensee and will be offered as a framed high-quality digital print in just one edition. By participating in this open call you get to join a vibrant and growing community of art lovers and crypto enthusiasts. 


The ten selected artworks undergo a quality check and authenticity and provenance verification. Given that everything is compliant and you are among the winning artists, you get to sell your artwork as an NFT on artèQ. 

Once you are selected, we move on to mint your NFT. Your work is then ready to be traded in the crypto marketplace. Your digital art portfolio is available 24/7 worldwide on artèQ’s exclusive NFT platform, where regular virtual auctions of selected artworks will take place.
