Rebecca Rose is an award winning sculptor, NFT hologram artist, and curator.
Rebecca is a confirmed speaker for NFT.NYC 2021 and will discuss NFTs and their holographic possibilities with support from Spectre Holograms, her sponsor for the event. Her NFTs have shown at the Miami Bitcoin Conference, The Blockchain Center NYC, and Stratosphere among others, and is on curatorial teams for MakersPlace, SearchLight, The Mynt, and NFTs.tips that brought irl and metaverse exhibitions to multiple venues in NY, Miami, Decentraland, and CryptoVoxels. She is a freelance journalist with NFTsWTF and have conducted interviews with heavyweights like Superchief Gallery NYC and popular 10k gen art projects in the space. As a musee.art landowner, Rose is developing the metaverse's first NFT Hologram Museum on a digital parcel neighboring Fewocious and Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Rose explores the capabilities of her work as NFT holograms using pepper's ghost, conical and pyramid inverted pyramids, vapor, and micro projections on personal devices. She is testing live feed holographic conversations held between countries, and is developing theories around a new digital user experience through holograms that allows audiences to engage with and virtually experience her art while occupying a different space away from the physical work itself. Her entre into NFTs includes unique, single edition digital works inspired by her digital collages and painting. She intends to apply these innovative findings to future exhibitions of her work as well as to help advance digital economies and sales in the art field, and how we as a society communicate en masse.
She led creative projects at The Walt Disney Co. for 18 years specializing in face and body painting prior to covid. During her tenure there, she opened multiple new locations across property and worked with partners from Lightstorm Entertainment to develop the Colors of Mo'ara and Lucasfilm for their Star Wars Weekends promo campaigns. For 4 of those 18 years she was flown to Rabat, Morocco to provide artistic entertainment to the Royal Family of Morocco to celebrate the offical birthday parties of Princess Lalla Khadija and the Crown Prince Moulay Hassan at the Royal Residence and Palace.
Her body of sculptural work, Sculpturings, is a hybrid of small sculpture and wearable art cast in precious metals using the lost wax casting process. Rose consistently shows in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, on Madison Ave, and had bronze works included at The Andy Warhol Museum. She was a participating artist for the interactive digital exhibition component in Occupy Museum's DebtFair during the 2017 Whitney Biennial held at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Recently she has shown during Beijing Design Week, Shanghai Design Week, and Art Basel Miami Beach. Her work has been featured on the pages of British Vogue and Conde Nast Traveller, and as a member of Mensa was featured in a cover story for their monthly magazine. She has been filmed for documentaries by PBS “Artisodes" and Art Attacks, featured in Yo-Yo Ma's "Bach Cello Suite" and KTLA’s “Good Day LA”, and is collected by notable public figures such as Andrew Lincoln from AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Kat Von D.
Her art has taken notice in academic communities as the subject of dissertations and included to participate in conferences and panels in conjunction with nationally acclaimed galleries. She is well versed in the subjects of wearables and art jewelry, having coined the Bridgism movement to describe patterns of wearable art crossing over into realms of digital fashion and sculpture, creating a bridge between the two art forms. Rose was awarded the Halstead Grant, one of the largest grants available to art jewelers nationwide, prominent scholarships by the Society of North American Goldsmiths and Crafthaus communities designed for high caliber artists involved in the applied arts, and has given artist talks at The Craft in America Center in Beverly Hills and at think tanks in conjunction with The American Craft Council. She was a fall resident at OxBow, one of the country’s most prestigious and longest established art institutions, has been awarded grants from Cerf+ and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, and was recently invited to create 4 new works to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing for the official gala held at the Kennedy Space Center. She was selected for the Joan Mitchell Center artist residency this April until the program was cancelled due to coronavirus.
In 2016, Rose was awarded the Governor's Medal of Unity for her volunteer work as a Red Cross first responder following the Pulse tragedy. Rose currently lives and works in her home studio in Davenport, FL.
