Get ready for another exciting week of Drops on MakersPlace! Featuring the return of an all-time favorite, José Delbo, in collaboration with the amazing Anna Zhilyaeva; the introduction of a new creator on MakersPlace, the world-famous, fnnch; and the continuation of Flying Fish, the epic 7-part short film series from Murat Sayginer.
fnnch – Dropping 6/16 @ 3:30 PM PST
Fnnch is one of San Francisco’s most prolific muralists, creating a world-wide namesake for himself after hundreds of murals and street art installations have popped up in San Francisco, Chicago, LA, Brooklyn, St. Louis, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong. Fnnch’s style is self described as “contemporary pop art” and most notably includes his signature Honey Bear. Last year Fnnch launched what might be the largest distributed art project ever – Making and and shipping over 18,000 paper Honey Bears to be hung in windows all around the world! His work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Food Network Magazine, and VICE!
fnnch believes that digital art offers a world of possibilities beyond securing digital assets. Every Tulip Bear in this series is an Asset-Backed Token, exchangeable for a signed, physical painting, and vice versa. However, the exchange is totally optional — enjoy as a digital artwork or a physical artwork — all of which can be done at any time, and goes in both directions.
José Delbo x Anna Zhilyaeva- Dropping 6/17 @ 3:30 PM PST
José Delbo returns to MakersPlace! Delbo is one of the world’s most notable comic artists, previously working with Marvel, DC and others – Penciling the published adventures of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Transformers and The Thundercats. He has since journeyed onto the blockchain, making some of the most notable NFT sales in 2020 and collaborating with the likes of Hackatao and Mark McKenna. At 87 years young, to say Delbo is one of the most respected comic artists in the digital art community, is quite an understatement.
Anna Zhilyaeva is a French immersive artist known for her work in virtual reality.
She is a true pioneer of art in mixed reality, and has performed live all around the world including at the Louvre museum in Paris.
A Touch of Death is the latest and greatest story by Jose Delbo of his infamous Death character, first making an appearance on the blockchain last year. As a breakthrough technology, digital art has brought Jose Delbo’s Death to life. This time, Delbo has partnered with the world famous Anna Zhilyaeva to portray Death in a whole new way. Anna herself appears in her pieces, but not alone! Joined in VR is Jose Delbo himself!
