Welcome to our new website!

Alpha Centauri Kid (ACK) is a multi-disciplinary artist known for his signature minimalistic glitch art that has taken the crypto community by storm. He entered the space in 2021 and has one of the most esteemed collector bases, including Punk 6529, VVD, Anonymoux, and many more.

A humble servant of The Muse, ACK obeys her will at all costs. His main purpose is to make you feel something (often pain) while experiencing his art. He achieves this through the clever use of tools available to web3 creators and does it with a swagger unique only to him. From faking his death on the blockchain to the most elaborate color study that captivated the entire art market for a month. You never quite know what he'll do next.

ACK has cemented his spot in blockchain history and, in my opinion, will be named one of the greatest artists of our time, and today, you get to hear his story.

We cover everything from his first minted (NFT) Elon Musk meme to his experience debuting The Muse silkscreen prints at Christie's. We also chat through scene creation, the challenges of incorporating music into his art, and his legendary performance piece, "The Great Color Study." And so much more.
