Ramona at “Physically Digital” a Pop-up NFT Art Exhibit by @NFT_Goat
The original 3D, multilayered “Ramona” BRANDED™ piece will be on display at Goat NFT Gallery from May 5 – 14 (along with its complimentary NFT). Together, they form 2 halves of the same story and bookend a digital art journey that is older than the Blockchain itself.
*Please note: The physical art is not attached to the digital art and is not for sale or included in the sale of the NFT.
One of a dozen 1 of 1 portraits from the YouNique NFT Collection
“Ramona” was one of 12 digital vector artworks created for a collection called BRANDED™. Each of these female portraits was printed on multiple layers of clear plastic and then set into custom frames. The show ran for 4 weeks in the Summer of 2008 at Supermarket in Toronto.
Years later, Ramona and her sisters have resurfaced. This time as NFTs of the same name. The YouNique NFT Collection picks up 14 years later right where the BRANDED™ show left off. This time as digital tokens steeped in Toronto art history.
Late Night Digital Art
Jimmy Fallon was the first television late night host to feature an NFT creator. Back in January 2022, Paris Hilton was a guest. She was there to promote her new NFT collection and discuss NFTs with Jimmy. They talked about their bored apes and then Paris premiered her digital collage with an audience giveaway.
Although not a big story at the time outside of the NFT community, one day digital art historians will look back on its importance.
Beeple was the latest digital art creator to make an appearance on the legendary program. Jimmy, (with some shout outs from the audience) challenged him to develop an original piece. This is the first of its kind. But I suspect, not the last.
