Picasso Family Launches NFT Collection to Bridge Fine Art and NFT

January 29, 2022, 10:00 AM AEST - 3 months ago

Marina Picasso, granddaughter of famed 20th century artist Pablo Picasso, and her DJ/record producer son Florian Picasso, have announced a groundbreaking multi-platform collection of 1,010 NFTs.

The Picasso family plans to auction off more than 1,000 digital copies of a never-before-seen ceramic work by the Spanish artist, with the collection divided into multiple drops from January 28.

The first collection consists of five limited sets of 200 NFTs entitled “Visage de Couleur” and will be sold via the family’s own marketplace, “ManAndTheBeat.com”, before the final collection of 10, titled “Visage de Lumière”, is released via Nifty Gateway.

Debuts in the Blockchain Marketplace

The collection released by the family will be further commemorated by Florian’s new song Tomorrow, which also features soul singer John Legend and rapper Nas, set for release on February 4. Marina will extend the NFT drop into March by partnering with an auction house for the sale of a one-of-one NFT paired with an exclusive piece from her private collection.

A portion of the proceeds from Picasso’s family NFT project will be donated to Nurse Heroes – a charity devoted to keeping nurses in the workforce – as well as Carbon180, a climate-focused NFO.

NFTs and Fine Arts Mesh

Blockchain and art enthusiasts are continually able to enjoy the two worlds come together. Last year, Australian multimedia artist Dave Court became the first in his field to stage a physical NFT exhibition. Court decked out an ordinary brick house in colours and light as part of a unique art installation. The house has since been demolished, but collectors can still purchase a digital piece of it online.

Another artist still making headlines is Beeple after his latest installation, Human One, paired with an NFT, sold at Christie’s for almost US$29 million in November.
