David Hockney, the world’s most expensive living artist, recently spurned NFTs as “silly little things.”
“Things can get lost in the computer, can’t they?” said the 83-year-old painter on an episode of the art podcast Waldy and Bendy’s Adventures in Art. “And they will be, in the future, lost in the computer, even when the cloud gets going. There’s going to be so much on it, how will you find it?”
Hockney, 74, has said he turned down the chance to become a [knight] because he "does not care for a fuss".
"I don’t value prizes of any sort. I value my friends," he said.
