Acclaimed Ghanaian artist Kojo Marfo has announced the launch of a future NFT series, which will be released in April 2022 in partnership with JD Malat Gallery, a gallery that works with established and developing international artists.
According to a press release, the collection includes elements by Pablo Picasso, artefacts, and masks.
Growing up in Ghana, the artist became interested in art and visual culture through traditional sculptures, antiques, and carvings. Kojo Marfo sees art as primarily a tool for communication, allowing him to tap into a growing pool of ideas and creativity. His upcoming NFT collection is a natural extension of his work ethic, drawing attention to society’s constant development.
According to Marfo, NFTs are a way to reach individuals who are enthusiastic about art and may be prepared to invest in it. These strong ties will be represented through actual pieces in the NFT collection.
The collection was built on a foundation of 250 elements. To create different NFTs, they were dispersed using an algorithm. The collection is influenced by both history and the artist’s Ghanaian origins.
A portion of the revenues will be donated to a charity of your choosing. The artist wishes to assist children or people in perilous situations.
Marfo, who was born in 1980, now resides in London. JD Malat Gallery in the United Kingdom provided over 1,000 artists a platform to show their work, and Marfo’s work was highly praised. While JD Malat is his only representation, his NFTs may reach audiences all over the world.
