Italian Artist Sells Invisible Sculpture For $18,000

First, people started dropping serious coin on digital art in NFT’s, and now it’s invisible art. Yes, you read that right: invisible.

Italian artist Salvatore Garau recently sold an invisible sculpture for a whopping $18,000 at auction. The work, titled “I Am,” or “Io Sono” in Italian, exists only in the artist’s mind. 

The person who paid $18,000 for the work of art gets a stamped certificate as proof of purchase. 

According to italy24news.com, the artist laid down specific conditions under which the immaterial sculpture can be displayed. It must be placed in a private home and has to be in a space that measures five feet by five feet without obstructions. Lighting and climate control are non-factors.

Shockingly, “Io Sono” is not Garau’s only invisible work of art. He’s previously created “Buddha In Contemplation” and “Aphrodite Piange.” However, it’s reported that this is the first invisible piece the artist has sold.
