Idriss B is joining the Metaverse to supplement his current portfolio by selling Polyverse Art, a collection of 11,000 NFTs. The sale of ‘The Polyverse Art’ collection will take place on the Ethereum blockchain on December 4th, 2021, and for the first time in NFT, every single bidder will get an actual art piece.
Idriss B is a French-Tunisian sculptor and artist most recognized for his outlandish aesthetic and polygonal animal-shaped creations. Idriss B was born and raised in Paris and has had a lifelong interest in art. He has amassed a considerable personal art collection and cooperated with notable businesses such as Jumeirah Group, Valrhona Chocolate, CZN Burak, and Four Seasons.
An NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a digital asset that, by definition, binds ownership to one-of-a-kind physical or digital goods such as art, music, real estate, or films. Despite the fact that they have been there since 2014, NFTs have taken off this year and are becoming more popular and profitable in the art world. In essence, NFTs are a digital version of fine art investments.
While Idriss B may be hopping on the NFT bandwagon, the Polyverse Art aren’t your average NFT. Not only are they created by a real-life artist, but owning one of the NFTs instantly qualifies them for an exclusive contest to become an astronaut and win a trip to space! For the first time in history, a genuine artist is bringing the Metaverse to life via his love, investigation, and devotion to his craft.
The Dubai-based artist has also used his high-profile network to guarantee that all NFT collectors enjoy a variety of real-world advantages such as the Zero Gravity Experience, VIP fashion events and concerts, a New York exhibition, all-inclusive art trips, and more.
“It is time to go on an epic NFT trip into the next chapter of art, and true artists must lead the way. We invest a lot of time and effort into our profession, so being properly rewarded and protected is a welcome relief. I’m thrilled for what’s to come and to be able to mix the best of both worlds,” Idriss B. remarked.
Dubai is poised to be the first government in the world to migrate all eligible transactions on blockchain technology, and the city-state is home to a rising number of entrepreneurs exploring the NFT realm as a result of the government’s aggressive backing. Dubai Future Foundation established the Global Blockchain Council to research and encourage transactions on the platform as part of its efforts to support these disruptive technologies and strengthen the UAE’s position as leaders in innovation.
Idriss B. is transitioning alongside his city of Dubai into a historic next chapter of his profession, but he has no plans to leave his “day job” anytime soon. Idriss B will present a public art show on Park Avenue in New York next year, in addition to partnerships with a premium jewellery company, EXPO 2020, and a very unique project with Nusr-Et.
