Join Arteza x Aku at Art Basel 2022
Submit your artwork by November 28th!
Open to anyone in the world, we are asking our community to create their very own Aku rendition using their background, community, and unique self to drive inspiration. Additionally, three lucky creators will be chosen at random to win a $100 Arteza gift card!
Aku is a 13-year-old boy and digital explorer who encourages anyone to dream big, no matter the obstacles. Created by former MLB player turned artist Micah Johnson, Aku and his oversized space helmet symbolize empowerment and confidence to any individual, regardless of background. Aku desires to help people of all backgrounds and inspires creatives of all ages to overcome barriers. Aku’s popularity and the message he conveys have allowed him to be the first NFT optioned for a major film and featured on the cover of TIME Magazine.
