Curation agency, ArtRepublic, recently announced a monthly NFT event series at Samsung’s flagship experience store in New York City to inspire the creative community. This second event will feature highly sought-after creator, Christopher Parsons, who has documented for influential musicians and brand giants like Nike and Jordan. As a long time ArtRepublic collaborator, Parsons has once again teamed up to reveal his first NFT exhibition, GENESIS, on Samsung 837’s colossal sized Brand Wall, which stands at a width of 7680px and height at 6480px, and other new QLED and Frame TVs with NFT capabilities. The Parsons GENESIS exhibit and personal appearance will be held Thursday, May 19th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Samsung 837 (837 Washington Street, NY, NY 10014).
Christopher Parsons is an American photographer, short film director, artist and modern-day storyteller. His works include portraits, fashion editorials, music videos and documentaries. He gained notoriety and amassed a cult following while on tour with B.o.B, Lupe Fiasco, Usher and Kendrick Lamar. After connecting with Kendrick Lamar, Parsons stayed on his artistic team for nearly a decade developing visual collaborations and documenting the influential musician’s impact on an entire generation. Parsons’ striking aesthetic and architectural background can be felt throughout his bodies of work. Known for his signature black and white portraits and short films, he delivers reflective biographic interpretations of his subjects, capturing raw emotion with a layer of sophistication.
Parsons will be in attendance for the NFT event and to discuss the nature of his collection. He’ll be available for interviews leading up to the event and a press meet and greet from 6:00-8:00pm on May 19th. His NFTs will be available for purchase through SuperRare with a reserve auction.
