M.I.A has announced that she will be auctioning off her first digital piece of art as a non-fungible token (NFT).
Simply titled, ‘GIFTY 1’, the piece of digital art is a still image from a GIF collection that celebrates her 25 years of working within the realm of digital art.
‘GIFTY 1’ is a part of a larger series called ‘NFT GARAGE DANCE’. The NFT will be available for purchase for 24 hours, starting Thursday, April 8th, at 4pm EST. After Thursday, she will be releasing another piece of art, called ‘KALA COYN’.
M.I.A has described her new art series as such: “KALA COYN and the GARAGE DANCE series is a living, breathing, a psycho-spectral canvas that crystalises this moment in time for me.
“Visually, it’s a mind fuck and embodies everything I’ve loved about the digital art arena. It’s only now that the appropriate gallery for my work finally exists.”
The show, GIFTY 1, will be auctioned through the Foundation’s official website for just 24 hours.
