The Wild Within is a series of digital artworks that bring new life into abandoned buildings from a bygone era.

Based on real-world physical spaces, an animated rebirth into a digital realm has been created.

The results are a surreal collision between the past and future, natural and manmade, physical and digital, and the real and imaginary.

The aim of the artwork is to create a sense of surreal tranquility whilst referencing the themes of architectural history, urban exploration, and the resurgence of nature.

Many of the buildings depicted in The Wild Within have been demolished in recent years, further emphasizing the theme of time passing in the cycle of growth and decay.

The first mint of The Wild Within occurred on March 24, 2021.


This begin the genesis chapter of a project that has been widely celebrated, exhibited and acquired by some of the World's premier collectors of digital art.

Chapter 1. The Wild Within Genesis (2021)


The Wild Within Genesis










Chapter 1 The Wild Within Genesis

During the Soviet Union, the Georgian town of Tskaltubo was a popular health destination famed for its therapeutic water and luxurious sanatoriums.

Between the 1940’s to 1980’s thousands of people visited each year, including Stalin and his high-ranking officials from Moscow.

The town was renowned for its therapeutic radon-carbonate mineral spring water believed to treat an array of ailments.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, the buildings were deserted and fell into disrepair. Floors were ripped up for firewood, and the metal salvaged as scrap.

Since the early 90's, the buildings have been slowly dismantled and stripped of their valuable materials, leaving empty shells of what were once grandiose classical structures.

Koopmans visited this region over several years, exploring the ruins and photographing these spaces that have undergone dramatic transition.

In collaboration with Alice Wexell, upon returning he digitally introduced vegetation, manipulated the lighting, modified the structures, and animated the scenes with the intention of reviving the empty spaces, essentially bringing life back into the rooms.


With these pieces, Koopmans and Wexell aim to bring the viewer into an alternate place and time.
