We’re excited to unveil new original artworks this week by Marko Zubak (aka MLIBTY), Osinachi, and a first-ever collaboration between Rare Designer and Vansdesign. All works are original and exclusively created and offered through MakersPlace.
Rare Designer x Vansdesign — Dropping 4/28 🔥
Rare Designer is a Venezuelan digital artist and one of the earliest creators of CryptoArt, first creating for the Rare Pepe Wallet project. His works broadly include conceptual, cyberpunk and comic art, which at times touch upon meme culture, drawing from his early successes creating Pepe artworks.
Vansdesign is an Italian designer and digital artist whose works blend many styles to generate colorful abstract artworks. Usually starting with simple shapes, he masterfully manipulates them into something abstract, 3D, or animated.
This first-ever collaboration features the comic / illustrative style of Rare Designer combined with the distinct style-markings of Vansdesign in the subtle but intricate details in the colors, movements, and lighting.
A culturally significant piece, hinted by the name of the artwork, Pandemic is inspired by the realities of living within the current viral pandemic. The piece contrasts the visible and invisible, dual realities, that we’re currently faced with.
Osinachi — Dropping 4/29 🔥
Osinachi (born Prince Jacon Osinachi Igwe) is a digital artist from Aba, Nigeria, whose work explores personal experiences within a technological environment. Osinachi produces drawings using Microsoft Word, where he utilizes the basic limited design palette of the word processing software to create beautiful, narrative illustrations. As Africa’s foremost cryptoartist, his blockchain-backed non-fungible token (NFT) artworks have been one of the most sought after on online rare digital art galleries.
Osinachi’s works notably initiate conversations that most people are often hesitant to have around identity — sexual, gender, cultural and otherwise. Tennis Player boldly challenges the preconception of gender and clothing, seemingly juxtaposing a male tennis player and his outfit.
Marko Zubak — Dropping 4/30 🔥
Marko Zubak (aka MLIBTY) is a Croatian mixed-media artist known for his paintings, sculptures and photography but more recently his CryptoArt. As a long-time artist within the CryptoArt community, Zubak’s works have continually pushed the boundaries across many styles and mediums, making him a widely recognized figure in this new movement.
Zubak has long showcased his iconic Crypto Paper Toys on MakersPlace, which are rare digital blueprints for creating the actual physical paper toys. A concept ahead of its time in 2018, now comes full circle with his latest showpiece incorporating his Paper Toys into his first rare digital piece on MakersPlace.
ETH trippin is a classical stop-motion piece featuring his iconic Crypto Paper Toy and guardian of the Ethereum blockchain — Sage of Ethereum. The Sage of Ethereum and this piece is intended to bring luck and fortune to those lucky enough to own it.
Always pushing the boundaries, with this piece, Zubak aims to reverse the philosophy of rare digital art being only digital, by incorporating real world elements. This is Zubak’s first ever analogue animation on the blockchain.
