Misan Harriman is a Nigerian-born British photographer, entrepreneur, and social activist. He is famous for being the first black man to shoot a cover of British Vogue in the magazine’s 104-year history.

He has a history of photographing high-profile celebrities including: Meghan Markle & Prince Harry, Angelia Jolie, Jay-Z, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Giorgio Armani, Rhianna, Cate Blanchett, Olivia Colman and Stormzy.

He was recently appointed Chair of the Southbank Centre. The Southbank Centre is known for being:

…a complex of artistic venues in London, England, on the South Bank of the River Thames. It comprises three main performance venues, together with the Hayward Gallery, and is Europe’s largest centre for the arts. It attracted 4.36 million visitors during 2019.”

A Permanent Art Collection (PAC)

The Permanent Art Collection (PAC) will take the form of a digital art gallery and will be launched on a Tezos collection website this summer.

On the PAC Misan Harriman said:

“The Tezos Foundation Permanent Collection will support and celebrate a new generation of artists that have chosen a smart contract-enabled path to be their true selves.

As the first curator of this collection I want to make sure the world sees the diverse voices that are making truly extraordinary work with crypto art. We will be the custodian for this new community of creatives.”

Arthur Breitman Co-founder and early architect of Tezos added:

“We’re thrilled to introduce this collection as a way to celebrate and garner additional awareness for artists of the Web3 world.

This project, in collaboration with Misan Harriman’s talent and expertise, allows us to create a bespoke destination with the sole purpose of elevating digital artists who turn to Tezos for a sustainable way of sharing their work with the world”.
