Multidisciplinary Jessica Yatrofsky has taken the NFT market by storm in recent months.
Since her blockchain debut, the NYC-based artist, known for her investigation of body
politics, beauty and gender, has landed her first solo exhibition, curated the first group
exhibition in the metaverse and sold out all six of her NFT collections.
Prior to her digital inauguration, Yatrofsky was making a name for herself in print. Her top-
ranked monograph, I Heart Boy – offered a sensual portrayal and subversive exploration of
male sexuality. The photographic collection received considerable praise in the media, as
did her sequential book – I Heart Girl – which was hailed by Dazed as one of “the most
exciting new photography books”.
Yatrofsky is the first female photographer to partner with Coinbase NFT and the first poet to
sell out a collection of published poetry on her own smart contract. Her book Pink Privacy
was the first book to be entirely blind minted on the blockchain.
The 173-page collection of poems employs a level of sexual frankness which has drawn the
attention of media and critics alike. A comedic debunking of life’s seriousness and an
unapologetic exploration of femininity, Forbes has celebrated it as a place where “the
feminine reigns supreme”, and i-D “a revelatory approach to the form”.
Art enthusiasts and makers are eagerly awaiting the launch of her next project Room707: a
space where writers, poets and creatives can gather in private to share their ideas. Her work
has already featured in a variety of virtual and IRL exhibitions and will continue to do so in
the upcoming months.
For those interested in discovering more about the artist, her work is part of the permanent
collection as the Leslie-Lohman Museum for Gay and Lesbian Art. Alternatively, you can find
