About NFTs by Yuri Catania:
The artist believes that NFTs are just technology and a medium. He creates video art and the idea to show his artwork on a customized screen is a perfect way. Art collectors want to buy art and they don't care about the medium, so it's much easy to give them the opportunity to display their NFTs collection on specific screens and not just on a PC or on a smartphone. People need to touch and be concrete.
