“Pixel and Thread” Exhibition
Fashion and Brand in the World of NFTs
Sept 9th - Nov 3rd, 2022
Come see the first world’s first digital-only garment on blockchain and explore the ways artists are bringing these elements of fashion and brand to digital in this inspiring exhibition.
Today, the Seattle NFT Museum announced the sixth exhibition this year titled “Pixel and Thread.” So many NFT collections toy with the concepts of image, brand, and persona. Even in our social profile pictures, we are adorning ourselves with NFTs as part of our digital identity. What happens when some of our offline representations like fashion and brand make their way into NFTs and the Metaverse?
“In this exhibition, we set out to highlight creators and collectives that are making bold expressions of fashion and new representations of Brand on the blockchain. From some of the very first fashion-forward NFTs to fashion made for NFTs, and from seasoned Fashion Week veterans to experimental metaverse garment designers, we are excited to showcase this holistic and highly nuanced art form that is Fashion,” said Joana Kawahara Lino, Exhibition Curator for the Seattle NFT Museum

Daniela Alves is a Portuguese artist who develops work in several areas from photography and video to digital and abstract art. Despite developing rigid works where she controls most variables, fashion is the one element that strays from her control, and gets her to push her own boundaries. In order not to limit her artistic vision, she uses several experimental techniques to develop her artworks. NFTs became the culmination of Daniela’s need for experimentation and connection with her audience, and a form to further pursue her artistic endeavors.

For over 15 years, Andrew Toth has worked both in the U.S and internationally as a freelance photographer, specializing in celebrity red carpets, runway shows, designer presentations, concerts, product launches, wildlife, and film/television. Andrew relishes in capturing specific moments in time, creating a single image that will never be repeated. Sight is one of the most complex senses to evolve on our planet and he appreciates creating this vision simulation through his photographs. He believes the pinhole camera is an example of the highest human ingenuity, which paved the way for artists and their audience to engage and connect in a unique way. After years of being a fervent member of the NFT Community, Toth decided to finally take his red-carpet-ready work into the space. A well-established member of the photographic community, Andrew worked at countless fashion weeks, as well as photographing the Met Gala, amongst other ultra-exclusive fashion events. Through his work, we get a glimpse into the backstage of fashion’s crème de la crème.
Andy Huang is a Taiwan-born, American artist working and living in New York City. He graduated from Pratt Institute with a master degree in communication design. His two-decades of digital experience design background shaped his thinking of simplicity. Andy uses uncompromising flat graphics, precise outlines, simplified shapes, vibrant colors, with odd and funny sensibilities to create his colorful, playful and expressive work. His intention is to give a new take on mid-century graphic design and add an uplifting energy to spread out a delightful vibe. Andy’s graphic artwork has appeared in design exhibitions including New York Video Festival in Lincoln Center, Art Directors Club and OFFF digital festival. His work is selected into design book projects like Worldwide Graphic Design, Young Asian Graphic Designers, and DESIGN magazine. NFTs became Andy’s way to live off of his art and connect directly to his collectors, as well as creating phenomenally colorful and joyful avatars whose personality shines through, especially through their fashion accessories.
