    Buying street art FAQ

    • What does it mean to purchase street art? What exactly am I buying?

      By its very nature, graffiti and street art is confined to a single geographical location and is often quite temporary, being painted over by municipalities, destroyed by the elements, etc. Totemo represents a new way to purchase street art as NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

      NFTs are basically digital receipts that confer ownership of something (in this case, a specific piece of work by a street artist) to a specific collector. While multiple images of any given piece of street art might exist online, owning the NFT provides proof that you have ownership of the piece as authorized by the artist. NFTs can be resold or traded to other collectors in the same way as physical art, baseball cards or any other collectible.

    • How do pieces of street art become NFTs?

      Artists collaborate with Totemo staff, our digital designers, our event promoters, etc, to take their original street art pieces and turn them into digital collectible NFTs that live on the Ethereum blockchain.

    • How do I purchase street art?

      On the Totemo marketplace collectors can find original works made for sale by graffiti and street artists. At live Totemo events or even just searching the website, collectors can connect their crypto wallet and purchase auctioned or for-sale pieces via Ethereum.

    • Why would I purchase street art?

      Collectors of street art NFTs come in all types. Some people aim to show their love to the scene, some want to support specific artists, and some collect as they believe the assets will accumulate in value and can be sold at a later date for a profit. The cool thing is that no matter what motivates a collector, the act of collecting always supports the artists, as they receive a portion of every transaction (primary and secondary sales).
