This 24-year-old writer and curator wears many hats. By day, she’s the art lead at Appetite – chef Ivan Brehm’s much-vaunted multi-concept space with a transdisciplinary approach to food, art and music – where she heads up exhibition programming and curatorial research. In her own time, she’s the curator for Art Dubai 2023 Digital, working closely with the fair’s organisers to further develop a section dedicated to digital and new media art.
Clara Peh is fittingly immortalised here into an NFT by the illustrator and animator Loredangoo. The latter is an Indonesian artist affiliated with NFT Asia, an artist-led collective started by Peh that seeks to amplify the works of Asian and Asia-based artists in the NFT ecosystem.
Meanwhile, those in the NFT (non-fungible token) scene would know her best as the founder of NFT Asia, an artist-led nonprofit community that amplifies the work of Asian and Asia-based artists. Since its founding in March 2021, NFT Asia has grown to become one of the largest collectives operating in the Web 3.0 and digital art ecosystem, with more than 19,000 followers on Twitter alone. Here, she shares more on NFTs and why they are here to stay despite the recent crypto crash.
