SuperRare has positioned itself well for this shift toward digital art. Co-founder Jonathan Perkins said the following about the effect SuperRare has had on artist’s:
“The most exciting and rewarding aspect has been seeing the massive positive impact on artists’ lives. For example, artist Carlos Marcial has been able to not only move his family out of Mexico City to a safer area near the beach due to his art sales but recently posted that he helped pay off his mother’s house as well. Stories like this are increasingly common, but never cease to put a smile on my face” (FAD Magazine, 2021).
