Alberto Mielgo is an artist’s artist. It is a particular distinction, suggesting not mere talent, but a quality of rebelliousness, one whose appeal is contingent upon his unique role as both a painter and animator — refining his style as an art director, but most importantly, an artist.

– Brandon Lori, Motiongrapher

A master of many mediums, Alberto Mielgo began his understanding of the language of painting and color in the digital world before transitioning into oil painting. During the course of his career he has advised the world’s largest technology companies on how to enhance their product offerings for digital artists, as well as creating groundbreaking, genre-defining work. 


A renowned artist and animator, Mielgo was an art director at Disney‘s Tron: Uprising (2013), a production designer and art director at Sony‘s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie, and made his debut work as a director with animated short film The Witness (2019), which he created for the Netflix anthology Love, Death & Robots. Mielgo was also involved in concept design of Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows before the film was even scripted. He’s worked closely the Gorillaz on projects like their 2006 Grammy performance with Madonna and their 2005 MTV Awards performance created the first half of the highly praised Beatles Rockband cinematic. His accolades for these projects include four Emmy Awards and two Annie Awards.

His artwork is deeply impactful and rebellious, exploring themes of impermanence, evolution, futurism, artificial intelligence and humanity. Mielgo’s style Each creation effectively transports viewers into new worlds, be it into another dimension, time or deep within ourselves for a moment of intrinsic self-exploration.

The Art of Permanence

The Art of Permanence, presented by MakersPlace, is the first collection of works to be auctioned via NFT from Spanish director, artist and animator Alberto Mielgo, an award-winning digital art pioneer known for his work on major Disney, Sony and Netflix animated features. The collection, which includes iconic pieces spanning his career as well as unreleased work, was created with the express purpose of peeling back the question: What is the value of permanence?

As software and technology swallow the world, cryptocurrency creates revolutionary alternatives to some of humanity’s oldest problems while creating new implications for the future of possessions. Through his NFT collection, Mielgo explores this narrative specifically for the possession of art, perhaps humanity’s truest expression. What digital art lacks in terms of physical, tangible ownership, it creates with new opportunities for ownership of renewed royalties on the secondary market and for an immediate feedback loop and direct engagement between audience and artist.

“There is one very significant difference between digital art and any other traditional form of artwork, and that is the ability to ‘undo’.

In a medium where even the brushstrokes can be manipulated, how do we as digital artists create a lasting impression? Some people think digital art is too perfect, but it has mistakes. It is manmade and you can see the struggle and imprint of the artist just like in an oil painting. That’s what I’m showing with my NFT collection – the real value of permanence that once was reserved for traditional art, we can now create and own digitally.”
