London, United Kingdom, August 17th, 2023, ElmonX, has once again caught the attention of everyone following the NFT Sector with the news of their impending release of the spectacular Nathan Sawaya in collaboration with VeVe.
Digital collectibles platform VeVe announced an exclusive partnership to release three exclusive drops by famed artist Nathan Sawaya licensed through ElmonX, a platform that creates licensed contemporary, modern & impressionist NFT Art, next-gen collectibles and artifacts.
Nathan’s first series, dubbed “Transfiguration,” refers to the change of form of his work going from physical sculptures to a digital state, where the iconic bricks are not physical pieces, but instead digital voxels. This first series will also be extremely limited, with the three collectibles having only between 450 and 600 editions each.
Below is a brief description of the three upcoming drops:
- Red Reaching (Ultra rare – 600 editions)
- Original sculpture made from 10,298 bricks
- This sculpture depicts the torso of a figure with its arms raised above its head. The figure is made from red LEGO bricks. The sculpture is about metamorphosis and transition. It is unsaid whether the sculpture is rising from the loose bricks surrounding it, or sinking into them. This was the first piece Sawaya sold at his first solo gallery show.
- Green Torso (Ultra rare – 600 editions)
- Original sculpture made from 8,990 bricks.
This sculpture depicts the torso of a figure in green LEGO bricks. The figure is holding its own head separate from its own neck. It plays with the idea that much like the LEGO elements, the head could simply just snap on or off. It is unclear whether the head is being removed or put into place.
- The Writer (Secret rare – 450 editions)
- Original sculpture made from 3,120 bricks.
This sculpture depicts a figure in black LEGO bricks holding a larger than life yellow pencil. The figure is saying to the viewer “Let your big ideas flow. When you let your creativity loose, be it in writing, art, music or whatever, your ideas take on a life of their own. So take those big ideas and set them free.”
Collectors can purchase these officially licensed digital collectibles on Saturday, Aug. 19 at 8 a.m. PT for $50 (50 In-App Gems) exclusively through VeVe, available to download on the App Store and Google Play, or through the VeVe Web App.
