HypeArt has teamed up with FVCKRENDER to release the media mainstay’s first-ever collaborative NFT that takes inspiration from HYPEBEAST’s print magazine covers. Entitled ‘FVCK_HYPEBEAST//‘, the artist created a brand-new CG art featuring crystallized florals with ‘HYPEBEAST’ text imposed on the digital cover.
Frederic Duquette, aka FVCKRENDER, is the leading digital artist from Montreal known for his 3D loops of alien subjects to undulating forms inspired by architectural geometry. Duquette reinterprets HYPEBEAST’s iconic print magazine cover with elements from his metaverse from the last few years such as crystallized flowers, hands and chains. The flowers symbolize growth where the hands represent generosity while the chains recall the spirit of community and working together. When all of these elements are combined, the resulting animation is a magnetic force from an otherworldly realm that celebrates the still-evolving technology surrounding digital art.
This joint work signals the start of ongoing NFT partnerships between the publication and leading artists in the global contemporary art sector. HypeArt aims to launch more narrative-focused NFTs that tell in-depth stories between the collaborators in the near future.
This one of one NFT artwork will be available for bidding from October 29 through November 5 exclusively on HypeArt and listed on OpenSea. A reserve price of 1 ETH will be set for the digital piece.
