Kode Abdo, aka Bosslogic, is a graphic designer and digital concept artist based in Australia who has stolen the internet’s heart with his creative fan art mashups and remixes.
“I’m always looking for new avenues for artistic expression-so when Gerard showed me the Kobe Bryant piece by Boss that he bought for his own personal collection, I immediately became a fan, and when the time came to do my own pieces, he reached out to him via social media and the rest is history. Creating the audio for Boss’s visuals was so much fun and I’m excited to dip my toes into the NFT waters with this first collection.”–Shakira
La Caldera collection, a digital art collaboration by Shakira and BossLogic, depicts the fantastical world of Caloris, a place ruled by women in an intergalactic landscape as they grapple with the arrival of both friendly and unfriendly visitors. Art-directed by both artists in a retro-futuristic style with a nod to the look and feel of vintage posters and graphic novels, the collection features 4 original audio pieces produced by and featuring Shakira to accompany this vibrant adventure where mythological themes are played out in a delightfully colorful post-modern world.
