Trust Heart Evangelista to keep up with the latest trend — even in tech!
On Instagram, Thursday, the Queen of Creative Collaboration announced that she will be releasing her first non-fungible tokens (NFTs) this coming November.
Sharing a photo of herself hard at work as she painted, Heart said she's been studying NFTs in the past months and have been collaborating with local artists to make her first NFTs possible.
NFTs, Heart explained, is a "new kind of digital art that is secured by blockchain technology and can take many digital forms including art, videos, and music. Basically, anything that can be stored digitally can be made into an NFT!"
She added, "These are really cool because they let a buyer prove that they are the true owner of a piece of art even if the art can be freely viewed by the public online. It’s such an interesting combination of art and technology that lets artists express themselves in a whole new way!"
Collaborating with Filipino NFT artist Luis Bueneventura and Manila Philharmonic Orchestra composer Rodel Colmenar for the last months, Heart said she was able to create her very first NFTs using some of her favorite pieces.
"It’s such a thrill to work with these talented artists to bring these NFT pieces to life," she said.
According to the actress, her first NFTs will be available on the OpenSea marketplace starting November 4. She also assured the public that she'll post more information soon on how to own her NFTs.
In the past year, NFTs have become popular as collectors and artists turn to the digital market amid the pandemic.
The digital asset, which can be art, music, and even GIFs, memes and tweets, exist on a blockchain and are bought and sold online.
Aside from her latest collaboration, Heart has also revealed she's been collaborating with Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd for "a little art project." — Kaela Malig/LA, GMA News
