Upstream Gallery presents Mountains and Drop Shadows (2023) by Jan Robert Leegte.

The work explores the stark contrast between the natural grandeur of mountains as sculptural expressions and the ethereal, digital materiality of drop shadows.

Mountains and Drop Shadows will be released as a series of 80 NFTs on Ethereum. Each NFT will be a unique responsive website containing a generative JavaScript/CSS animated drop shadow over a JPEG background image.

More info about the work here.


Verse is delighted to announce HERE, a weekend-long event dedicated to contemporary art in the heart of London.

Visitors to the event can experience the works of leading artists like Paul Pfeiffer, John Gerrard, Haroon Mirza, Lorna Mills, Roope Rainisto, Jan Robert Leegte and A.A. Murakami. These artworks will be presented in collaboration with respected galleries such as Lisson Gallery, Galerie Nagel Draxler, Upstream, Artwrld, Fellowship and many others.

Verse, as a digital art platform, aims to foster a sense of community among digital art collectors and enthusiasts, challenging traditional perceptions and embracing the future of art.
