NFT pieces will be sold at an auction to be held on November 30th. All the money raised will be used for the restoration of the cultural heritage of Ukraine. This is the primary mission of META HISTORY — the largest charitable NFT project in Ukraine. The sale of Vesa and Zinaida will be the first META HISTORY's fine art auction. Earlier works by some prominent Ukrainian artists have already appeared in the museum collections. For example, the 2nd drop of the "Warline" presented the artworks of Waone Manzhos, Sestry Feldman, Danya Shulipa, and Irene Neyman. The museum also has successful auctions, among which is selling the NFT cup of the Eurovision for 500 ETH.
The art auctions are part of a plan to increase the scope and level of the museum's activities, which will be implemented jointly with the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine. The goal is to turn the NFT into a new world generator in place of what was destroyed by the war in Ukraine. Since it is in the area where art meets blockchain there are a lot of amazing founders, builders, investors, and creators who are willing to support the revolution of web3 and beyond.
Vesa Kivinen will provide for the auction one of his colorful and hypnotic pieces. He is the mixed media artist whose work might best be defined as "Western abstraction." He combines oil painting, body painting, and photography to create his imagery. The filmmaker, photographer, painter, and Photoshop artist, Vesa brings all of these skills to a new kind of expression. The technical process involves painting on canvas, body painting on his model, photographing the whole process from start to finish, taking more photos out in nature, and then combining all of those images in Photoshop as a collage. He is considered to be the leading early artist building the metaverse and NFT expansion, being among the first to enter the earliest stages. His art has been collected by hedge funds, exchanges, CEOs, and influencers. Among them are Charles Hoskinson, Charlie Lee, Dr. Marwan Al Zarouni, Saeed Al Darmaki, Tone Vays, Willy Woo, Adam Williams, and many others.
