Expressing enthusiasm about the collaboration, Cozomo de’ Medici stated in a press release, “I am excited to partner with Avant Arte to support digital artists in their experimentations with the physical medium. Avant has made great strides in unlocking fine art ownership for a new generation of collectors, and with this partnership, my hope is patrons find more appreciation for both digital and physical art alike.”

The partnership between Avant Arte and Cozomo de’ Medici is poised to foster the growth of leading digital artists from The Medici Collection. By leveraging Avant Arte’s print-making and edition capabilities, Cozomo and Avant Arte aim to make both digital and physical art more accessible to a global audience.

Christian Luiten, Co-founder and Head of Artist Community at Avant Arte, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, saying, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Cozomo de’ Medici to support leading digital artists to create physical works. When Avant Arte first dived into the world of digital art last year, we wanted to make sure we were adding to the community by bringing our expertise in print-making and editioning to the table and introducing the work of artists to our community of over three million young collectors across the globe. Partnering with a leading patron like Medici and the artists he has selected is the realization of that wish, and I couldn’t be happier to be bringing these artists and our community together.”
