WHEN & HOW:
This unique NFT will be auctioned between 17 – 21 January 2022 during the Davos WEF Week on WISe.ART, the only entrusted NFT marketplace for luxury goods, art and other high-end collectibles.
Responding to the needs of buyers and sellers of high-value goods, the WISe.Art platform is developing into a fully-fledged marketplace with its own digital currency, the ability to include curators and multipliers, white-labeling options and custom-made NFT design.
The NFT design of the WISe.Art platform ensures that besides an authenticated and signed version of the actual digital asset, an irreversible link to a physical object is set up, in addition to proof of ownership, provenance and a set of contracts describing future use and monetization streams, if relevant.
The NFT tokenization uses the WISeKey registered patent application, “System and Method for Providing Persistent Authenticatable NFT” in the USA. With this method, NFTs have increased in value and will hold their long-term value.
NFTs and the platform are secured by WISeKey’s own security technology enabling the protection of physical objects as well as digital assets in a safe end-to-end process.
PEDRO SANDOVAL – THE STORY:

He manifested his artistic skills from an early age, and he was awarded the Young Master of the World Award in the Japanese city of Osaka at only six years old. His outstanding craftsmanship led him to the Cristobal Rojas school, in his native Venezuela, where he received classical training. Pedro Sandoval is interested in the alliance between figuration and abstraction and has worked with internationally recognized mentors such as Oswaldo Vigas or Jesús Rafael Soto.
After settling in Spain in the 2000s, he travelled to Germany where he met the most renowned figures of German neo-expressionism such as Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke and Anselm Kiefer. He joined their movement which Wolfgang Becker described as the “New Savages”.
Currently, Pedro Sandoval focuses his research on both the new German avant-garde and the work of abstract American expressionists such as Hans Hofmann, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock or Cy Twombly. His works can be found in museums such as the Guggenheim in New York or in the contemporary art museums of Caracas and Boca Raton (Florida), as well as the collections of the White House, the Vatican Museums or the Kennedy’s.
