The group chosen to participate in TIMEPieces live on nearly every continent and use a wide variety of approaches to their work ranging from photography to illustrations to paintings and more. They range from native NFT artists to traditional artists whose work for TIMEPieces were their first NFTs. Some of the pieces are still and some are animated. All generously donated their work to build a better future for the Ukrainian people.

TIMEPieces celebrates the work of artists, which has been a core aspect of the TIME brand for nearly 100 years. The initiative has hosted three drops featuring 78 artists; all artists in the Artists for Peace collection have previously participated in a TIMEPieces drop.
TIMEPieces represents an important first step in TIME’s Web3 community initiative with the goal of building utility and community value over the long-term—for artists, collectors, and brand marketers looking to enter the space.
This auction follows the close of the recent Slices of TIME drop, TIMEPieces latest collection of NFT art, inspired by TIME’s nearly 100 year history. Featuring an innovative burn mechanic, collectors minted over 10,000 NFT’s from 99 collages, one for each year of TIME’s existence, and hand-made by TIME’s creative director, D.W. Pine. Holders burned 5,300 of the Slices in exchange for randomly distributed pieces of art from an incredible roster of 38 artists, many of whom are featured in the TIMEPeace collection.
