Madonna and Beeple and the NFT collection dedicated to the idea of creation and motherhood
Apparently, even star Madonna couldn’t resist the allure of NFTs to convey her message, adding to her already artistic communication tools such as music, film, dance and writing.
The new collection is the result of a year-long labor of love, with the goal of telling the idea of creation and motherhood through the new digital art tool of Non-Fungible Tokens. The three works explore the concept of birth through darkness and light in our modern world.
In this regard, Madonna stated:
“When Mike and I decided to collaborate on this project a year ago, I was excited to have the opportunity to share my vision of the world as a mother and an artist with Mike’s own unique point of view. It’s been an amazing journey building this together from an intellectual idea to an emotional story, giving birth to art.
I wanted to investigate the concept of creation, not only the way a child enters the world through a woman’s vagina, but also the way an artist gives birth to creativity. Most importantly we wanted to use this opportunity to benefit mothers and children who are most in need right now”.
Beeple also joined in the commentary as follows:
“I was thrilled to connect artistically with Madonna to create this series of artworks. Our collaboration was really natural and we shared a creative vision that has been so gratifying to realize and now share with the world”.
Specifically, the three NFT works are:
- Mother of Nature, which features a tree full of life destined to recreate itself and flourish;
- Mother of Evolution, which instead touches on the metamorphosis journey of butterflies;
- Mother of Technology, inspired by science that with the right awareness can give light to the physical and real world but with consequences, so nature will always win.
Singers and artists in the world of Non-Fungible Tokens
This new pair of famous names such as Madonna and Beeple, are on the same level as other names of artists and singers who use NFTs to express their art.
Just last month, Italian artist Matteo Mauro recorded his new $100,000 sales record for his Four Elements NFT collection, of which Terra (Earth) had yet to go on sale.
Celebrated hip hop singer Snoop Dogg also launched his first NFT collection using the Cardano blockchain in early April, thus expanding beyond Ethereum. The new project was made possible thanks to the collaboration of Clay Mates, the liaison between Snoop Dogg and the Cardano Community.
