The Progress of Existence by Alan Bolton

Released Nov 14, 2022

The Crypt Gallery Presents: Alan Bolton

November of last year, The Crypt Gallery introduced Nifty Gateway collectors to Alan Bolton, a multidisciplinary digital artist. To celebrate the anniversary of his genesis drop on NG and reward current collectors, we are excited to welcome Alan back for this exclusive collection. Centered around time, these artworks capture Alan’s relationship with time and his awareness of how important the present moment is.

Reflecting on the past year, we would like to emphasize how important and valuable, yet also completely abstract, time is. Many in this community may have experienced how incredibly quick, and potentially overwhelming, the nature of this industry can be. Constantly moving, there is a tendency to overlook the present and focus only on the future. Yet, events and moments in the present dictate what tomorrow will bring.

Within one year, many things can be accomplished and changed, yet in many ways we find ourselves standing in the exact same place we started. With this collection, The Crypt Gallery would like to remind everyone the importance of growth, perseverance, appreciation of the journey and, above all, remembering and rewarding those that genuinely supported and continue to HODL. Because without these individuals, no amount of time would help or lead to success.
