NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) artworks are artistic works that are cryptographically recorded in the blockchain, with limited copy numbers. In the field of art, which has always been closely intertwined with socio-cultural, economic, and technological developments, blockchain technology is now being widely used through NFT artworks. This study aims to examine the NFT collection titled "Geometries" by American artist Frank Stella. The collection consists of 22 pieces and is available on Open Sea, one of the most popular NFT art markets. The evaluation of Frank Stella's NFT collection "Geometries" will focus on its form and content, as well as its relationship with the traditional art world.Frank Stella's art career offers one of the most original examples to evaluate the relationship that Modern and Postmodern art will establish with NFT technology. With this aspect, the artist has transferred the ongoing perspective from minimalism to his contemporary works. Although subjectivity is avoided in the collection, there is a unity of ideas and styles. Utopian-dystopian universes, urban phenomenon, biomorphic forms, space-space relationship come to the fore. In the “Geometries” series, form and form precede the subject in the studies.Studies on NFT artworks in the literature generally focus on the art market area. There is a lack of research that examines the content of NFT artworks or focuses on their relationship with art history. For this reason, it is thought that the study will contribute to the literature.
