…. And here we are.
As I mentioned in my previous blog, The Ethernal Gates is an amazing new project that I have been working on for a while and today I will be giving you a sneak peek of what is in-store.
Firstly, I would be amiss if I did not talk about my amazing collaborators on this project, Arts DAO. Arts DAO are spearheading the premium art scene in UAE by connecting and bringing together leading artists, entrepreneurs and futurists to form an exclusive community of NFT art collectors and creators.
Working together, we conceived of a generative art series that would not only push my creative vision forward but also represent the spirit of the community that Arts DAO has formed. To give you a quick recap on what generative art is: it is essentially automated artwork that is produced when the creative process is partially or entirely automated. The concept of generative art NFT builds on this and results in digital artworks that are auto-produced through algorithms on the blockchain. This provides an added level of authenticity and novelty to digital art ownership unheard of before.
With The Ethernal Gates, I not only wanted to create my first generative art NFT series but I also wanted to pay homage to incredible Arts DAO community that is providing invaluable support to the region’s growing NFT art community. Why is the title “Ethernal Gates”? Well, the word ethereal by definition is used to describe an invaluable connection between a group of alike minded people very much like the Arts DAO community and we also have a bit of wordplay as ethereal seems to merge Ethereum and eternal together. The gates in the title and in all the artworks represent the entryway of the Arts DAO metaverse and also the doors that NFT technology is opening for arts and culture.
Now, let’s get into what the artworks of this series will look like: each minted NFT artwork will feature one of 9 different gates, props and backgrounds in completely randomized order generated through the algorithm. The gates are my recreations of iconic gates and doorways from fiction and history, while the props in black and white are visual representations of various terms from the crypto world such as “moon” and “whale”. It is amazing how even though we have a sophisticated system producing these art pieces, they still capture my visual style and essence perfectly. Here is a little peek of what the artworks from the series will look like:
So, The Ethernal Gates will be released as an NFT drop and each artwork will serve like a membership card for the Arts DAO community. There will be 2000 unique NFTs in the collection and they will all come with the same series of perks which includes:
- Access and exposure to blue-chip NFTs and fractionalized ownership to exclusive projects through the Arts DAO
- Designated whitelist spots in new upcoming projects which would guarantee a cheaper mint price than the one offered in public
- A monthly newsletter giving you the latest on market trends and updates the Arts DAO industry experts
- Discounts to NFT events happening in UAE and complete access to all the Arts DAO community events
I am just scratching the surface here with all the benefits that come along with the Ethernal Gates NFT. I will be announcing further details on this NFT collaboration and series: all you need to do is keeping checking my socials and the Arts DAO website which you can visit right here.
