New artist L.A. Migiotto, and digital collectibles and virtual reality platform Terra Virtua, today announced a drop of eleven previously unseen celebrity images into exclusive non-fungible token (NFT) artwork.
With access to a body of work chronicling more than 30 years of celebrity culture, new artist L.A. Migiotto uses the vast expanse of the Lyons Gallery archive to draw on candid shots of icons from past and present. The exclusive NFT artworks feature famous faces including David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Beyonce, Madonna, Iggy Pop, Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey, Bono, Elton John, Britney Spears and Jay-Z, which will be auctioned at an online event.
The full collection is live now on the Terra Virtua marketplace.
Terra Virtua has created a digital platform which, amongst other functions, enables it to market and sell the content in a digital format. NFTs are a digital asset that exist on the blockchain, a public ledger that allows anyone to verify the asset’s authenticity and ownership.
Terra Virtua recently made history by securing the exclusive rights to Godzilla Vs. Kong, which were created in collaboration with Legendary, and was among the first-ever NFT drops to coincide with the release of a major film.
Gary Bracey, CEO at Terra Virtua comments, “This is an incredibly exciting partnership for us. Our partnership with Lyons Gallery to launch such an innovative new artist, L.A, Migiotto, is a great platform for us to showcase the breadth and quality of Terra Virtua’s digital collectibles and the incredible curated artwork that we’re building on the platform.”
