Five NFTs on Tezos to See in August
Native South American pixel art, Buddha, Japanese actor on acid, deadly sins and a Klimt picture out of gold. That’s the top 5 of NFT’s on Tezos in August.
In our monthly NFT digest, we review the most interesting tokens that popped up on Tezos marketplaces in August.
No forest, no life
Amazon rainforests are known as the lungs of the planet as they produce 7% of all oxygen we have to breathe. Nonetheless, they are being systematically destroyed by humans: the trees are cut and burnt, mines are dug, and the soil is poisoned with quicksilver during gold mining.
Brazil activists fight with that. To support them, artist Eduardo Politzer issued a collection of 100 NFTs with national ornaments of Brazil’s natives. The raised funds will go to support the protests against the deforestation of Amazon.
The NFT called No forest, no life costs 1 tez on hic et nunc.
MAIKEUL draws portraits with bright acrylic paint on black backround. His paintings sell well and get exhibited at Ethernity Gallery in Paris. The author often tokenises his works. Tezos blockchain already boasts NFTs with Queen Elisabeth II, Salvador Dali, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.
Right now one can buy a work called Golden Buddha on Kalamint. At the time of writing, the highest bid was 1,700 tez.
Samurai on acid
Do you remember the rainbow cat from Nyan Cat animation? Byteblock has something even better: an animated samurai on acid. In fact, it’s a portrait of an actor from the Japanese theater by Toyohara Kunichiki, a Japanese artist, with added colours and movements. The final work is credited to Alberto Montegudo, a member of NFTArtisants.
The portrait is a part of UYIKODELIC, a collection of psychedelic reproductions of famous artworks. You can buy UYIKODELIC #1 on Byteblock for 5 tez.
Seven deadly sins
Cryptopunks are alright but Tezos has something even better. Delcamart sells 24 animated portraits of sins, monsters, and humans on Kalamint. Better visit the author’s page on Kalamint right away to check out the style and animations. Prices start at 5 tez.
Klimt out of real gold
Gustav Klimt decorated some of his works with gold, silver, and precious stones. Thus, the cape and the background on his picture Kiss are made of gold leafs. There had been hundreds of artists inspired by that, yet Greg Yuna went even further. He replicated the original painting with bracelets for watches, gold chains, and jewels.
Alas, the picture has already been sold for 365 tez at Truesy. Still, this might be among the best specimens of tokenised art.
