Super craze na talaga ngayon ang mga non-fungible tokens o mas kilala sa tawag na NFTs. Mula sa mga games, music, lalo na pag-dating sa mga digital arts. Kamakailan, ibinahagi ng walang iba kundi ang aktres at fashion darling na si Heart Evangelista ang kanyang kauna-unahang NFT.
Ipinahayag ni Heart noong Oktubre na sasali rin siya sa mundo ng NFT at makikipag-collaborate siya kasama si Luis Buenaventura, a.k.a Cryptopop at sa Manila Philharmonic Orchestra’s Rodel Colmenar.
Ang Cryptopop ang una at ang pinaka-talented na Pilipino NFT artists.
“It’s a new kind of digital art that is secured by blockchain technology and can take many digital forms including art, videos, and music. Basically, anything that can be stored digitally can be made into an NFT,” paliwanag ni Heart, batay sa ulat ng Manila Bulletin.
Ang Heart Evangelista x Cryptopop ay ginawang available online sa pamamagitan ng Open Sea mula Nob. 4 – 18, at na-showcased dito ang dalawa niyang artworks na lalo pang naging espesyal dahil sa mga sound at visual effects nito.
“I’m so proud of this remix, which I worked on with Luis Bueneventura, one of the Philippines’ most talented NFT artists, and Rodel Colmenar, composer of the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra,” sabi ni Heart.
“Together, I think we created a piece that truly immortalizes the transitions, stillness, and emotions we experienced as last year’s craziness put our lives to a halt.”
“Desiderantium” at “Pluviam,” ang pangalan ng mga likhang sining ni Heart kung saan ginawa niya ito habang naka-lockdown dahil sa pandemya.
“Like many people, the lockdown was a time of great transition for me. Suddenly, everything going on in my busy life slowed down and for the first time, I was able to be still and contemplate the huge changes that were going on,” aniya.
“Painting these pieces was so therapeutic and helped me process the crazy time we went through. I feel these pieces immortalize what I, and probably many of you, felt during the lockdowns.”
Umabot sa ₱3.6M o 7.35ETH (etherium) ang kinita nila Heart at Luis para sa kanilang artworks.
“Hopefully, we never have to go through anything like that again, but I think it’s important we have art like these NFTs that commemorate what we went through and eventually overcame,” sabi ni Heart.
