Lead Artist

Daïm Aggott-Hönsch

Born in Budapest some years before the fall of the iron curtain, Daïm Aggott-Hönsch spent his formative years in Szentendre and studied the visual arts as a child under a renowned artist and educator, the late Jenő Zaszlavik.

After his family's immigration to Canada in the 90s, he spent some years in Oakville, before settling in Toronto. Daïm began his mathematical and algorithmic explorations in the early 2010s, becoming an emerging artist in 2016.

In 2019, Daïm joined the burgeoning cryptoart community, shifting his efforts from producing archival prints to issuing natively digital non-fungible tokens (NFT) of his increasingly varied static and dynamic works. Daïm's innovative slow artwork "Ancestral Memories" was a short-listed NFT Awards 2020 nominee and his generative Cryptoblots project was one of the series featured in Sotheby's 2021 Natively Digital auction's Art Blocks lot.

His digital works form a part of a number of high-profile collections, including but not limited to Vignesh Sundaresan a.k.a. Metakovan, Pablo Rodriguez-Fraile of Lot 555, and Colborn Bell of the Museum of Crypto Art (MoCA).
