DotPigeon the man, the myth, the pigeon.
- Physical and Digital artist from Milan, Italy. Started creating digital art on deviantart.com.
- Artist is represented by Plan X Art Gallery based out of Milan Italy. Physical pieces are sought after and hard to come by.
- First artist to coincide Physical and NFT drop “My dark twisted fantasy” March 2021. Artist is wanting to bridge the physical art world to the NFT space and vice versa. Expect more of these pairings in the future.
- Strong following AKA Pigeon Gang AKA Balaclava Gang and so on.
- Art style is simple yet mesmerizing. Smoothly detailed with subtle movements, incorporates other NFT artists in pieces. It’s like looking at a painting with movement. The masked man represents the rebel within us all. At the end of a long day all we want to do is smoke a cigarette, say fuck you, and leave me alone.
- Up and coming artist currently ranked 33 in the Crypto artist list based on sales.
- Total market cap $2,995,574.61. Total pieces sold 1,319 from two drops “I’ve just robbed the crypto bank” January 2021 and the second drop “My dark twisted fantasy” March 2021 both held on Nifty Gateway.

- Upcoming drop June 9, 2021 “Fly me to the moon” There will be 3 drawings for Collectors, 4 drawings for Non Collectors, and 2 Silent Auctions. You will need 2 DotPigeon pieces to enter the Collectors drawings and 1 DotPigeon piece or 1 NFT from other artists whom he has collaborated in march with to enter Non Collector drawings.
- There are 1,220 NFTs from DotPigeon on Nifty Gateway. Plus 9,479 from other artists whose pieces make you eligible to enter the Non Collector drawings. Which totals up to 10,699 possible entries for the Non Collector drawings. For the Collectors pieces you will need at least 2 DotPigeon pieces to enter. With 1,220 DotPigeon NFTs on Nifty Gateway this equates to 610 possible entries. You may enter multiple times if you have multiple pieces. You need atleast 2 to enter, and can enter per each DP you have. For example if you have 4 DotPigeon pieces you can enter four times and so on. Good Luck.
Long Term Outlook:
- DotPigeon values his collectors by rewarding them. In May 2021 Dotpigeon had a burn for his piece “Hey, Alexa tell everyone to go fuck themselves”. Collectors had to burn 4 pieces of Alexa to receive the empowered Alexa known as “Hey Alexa give these people what they deserve”. In total 116 Alexa’s were burnt so there will be 29 collectors receiving “Hey Alexa give these people what they deserve”. DotPigeon will also be gifting this piece to artists with whom he has collaborated with in his works.
- DotPigeon quit his job as an advertising art director in April 2021 to focus more of his time on art, collectors, networking, and exploration. After the Nifty Gateway drop DotPigeon will be included in a curated group drop on Opensea in June 2021 as well. Also physical show in Cologne with Nagel Draxler Gallery. DotPigeon is not expected to have another NFT drop until 2022 but may do collaborations with other artists. As we move into the new phase of NFTs I believe DotPigeon will continue to evolve. We are still very early in this space and DotPigeon is just getting started. With his upcoming drop it is evident that he will be focusing more on his pieces being more scarce, rewarding his collectors, and his pieces having utility. The future is bright and I am excited for what DotPigeon has in store.
