🎊 Year in Review 2022 - Kaloh's Newsletter
Let's look at the 2022 highlights and my plans for 2023!
Kaloh here with the last email of 2022!
I would like to take the time to review everything that happened over this exciting year and share a bit about my 23’ plans.
🚀 Kaloh Substack Community
Exactly one year ago (December 28th, 2021), I turned on the Substack premium feature to offer additional content, access to my Discord server, and special airdrops. I had no idea what to expect.
Forever grateful to Claus Wilke, Culla, and an anon reader for hitting subscribe just a few minutes after!
Since then, we have grown to a community of ~7k art fans and ~250 premium members. This makes this Substack among the bestsellers in the platform and currently #16 in the crypto category — #1 for crypto art!
I’m also very proud of our Discord server, its members, and the deep discussions about artists, generative art, marketplaces, and Web 3.
✍️ Top Kaloh’s Newsletter Issues

👁 Blind Gallery
What started as a fun experiment to bring more attention to art instead of hype and names evolved into something much bigger.
In less than half a year, we collaborated with over 35 talented crypto artists and reached over 1,000 collectors.
Blind Gallery Editions
Running the Blind Gallery has been super exciting and challenging at the same. The first two editions sold over 2k mint passes and was a great discovery channel for all kinds of artists.
Blind Gallery Club
It was overwhelming to see the massive support for the Blind Gallery Club. The public sales on fxhash sold out instantly, and the Club is now the home of 400 artists and collectors.
Big plans for 2023
We have been brainstorming and setting our goals for next year. There are great things in the works already, and I can’t wait to share more news.
I suggest you sign up for the Blind Gallery newsletter to receive all the updates.
The Blind Gallery is looking for a Marketing Manager. If you are interested, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2022, I had the chance to travel some of the most exciting events in the NFT art space. I met many amazing people, including readers, artists, collectors, and founders, who all share a passion for art, technology, and this new cultural movement (revolution?).
🇬🇧 Proof of People, London
I gave a workshop on How To Kick Start Your NFT Collection.
🇪🇸 NFT Show Europe, Valencia
Tapas & paella. Read a summary of the event here: Field Trip Report: NFT Show Europe 22
🇲🇽 Bright Moments, Mexico City
I presented The State of the Generative Art Market, saw amazing art, and listened to the best panels and talks in the generative art world.
🇺🇸 Art Basel, Miami Beach
I visited Art Basel Miami Beach and multiple side events. Read a summary 👉🏝 Art Basel Miami Beach Impressions.
🎨 Art Creation
I released two generative art collections on fxhash. My goal was to learn and put myself in the shoes of the generative artist.
I’ve taken time to digest everything I have learned from artists, collectors, tools, and art over the past year. One of my goals for the next year is to create generative art more frequently.
As they say, you don’t change a winning team!
Here is a summary of what you can expect going forward:
Writing: I’ll continue to write two weekly issues —sometimes less, sometimes more. The first issue will consist of a market analysis, an opinion, an artist interview, or something related to generative and crypto art. The second issue will be a weekly digest.
Blind Gallery: You can expect a Blind Gallery edition every 4 to 6 months, the next one happening in early 2023. As I said, we are working on exciting things (from different angles, hopefully, it will be surprising 😉).
Analytics: I’ve been prototyping an analytics tool for collectors and artists. This will bring transparency and consistency to my market analyses and the whole space. It should be ready Q1 2023 (!).
Art: As I said earlier, one of my goals is to find time to code and create art myself. I will give it a shoot next month at the #genuary online event.
Thank you all for your support 🙏!
See you next year,
