According to curator Drue Kataoka, the exhibition’s title is “a reference to Asian skin, but also to excellence, and of course, to the roots of cryptocurrencies.”
“Asian American artists have been the backbone of digital creativity for decades: From pushing visual technology to its limits in Hollywood special effects, to building virtual worlds for top gaming experiences, to advancing the frontier of technology art.”
The diverse NFT artworks range from a photo of rush hour in Taiwan by photographer Billy Dinh to futuristic 3D art by multidisciplinary filmmaker Curry Sicong Tian.

Fret not if you aren’t well-versed in crypto culture or can’t afford big crypto bucks to splash on NFT art — the complimentary exhibition exists solely for your viewing pleasure.
Prefer browsing in-person art exhibitions? Then take note of Metavision, located at the K11 Musea. It is Hong Kong’s most diverse NFT exhibition to date and houses some of the biggest names in NFT art under one roof.
