#9 Idiot by Sean Williams was collected by robness for $5,145

Idiot
Edition 1 of 1
Good art is many things: meaningful, passionate; a representation of the artist’s life and culture captured in a moment for the world to experience and process in their own unique way… Often times, though, ‘stupid’ is probably the best word to describe the energy behind what really gets people talking. Art like this usually pisses me off. And that’s what makes the story behind this piece even more dumb: Accidentally make a hole in your wall on Christmas morning, go viral on Twitter for it, after YEARS of planned, methodical work trying to do just that for ANY of my other work. Ha. Whether it’s slashes on a canvas selling for millions at Sotheby’s or a Banana taped to a wall at Art Basel for 120K – the strange things that pull at a Hümbans spirit and forces them to buy, to speak on art, or to REACT, never make sense, and it’s the traction that this piece received on Twitter that drives that point home even more deeply for me: an immediate perspective shift. Whether impactful, pretentious, or just plain fucking dumb, this piece not only perfectly encapsulates my 2020 as an artist, but it serves as the perfect capstone for a year of artistic discovery, growth, and understanding. Ahem* one might say “breaking walls” both conceptually, and now physically. It truly is a weird, wild, world. – “In this multidimensional, boundary shattering work, the artist interrogates our need, or perhaps desire, to be protected by the walls we’ve erected within ourselves and our society to keep us safe, or maybe isolate ourselves further.” [email protected] (Twitter) The Owner of this WEIRDWILDWORLD NFT will receive a 20″ X 30″ Giclée Art print with 1/4″ White Foamboard Mounting, printed on Torchon Paper, signed by the artist, as well as access to the digital RAW file & JPEGs of the piece

It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today.

#3 The Scapegoat by Hackatao was collected by perceptive for $17,166

The Scapegoat
Edition 1 of 1
“When there’s conflict, groups of humans tend to come together by rallying around the exiling of a scapegoat. The scapegoat tends to be an individual or group that is part of the group but easily stands out for some obvious reason. Exiling has evolved over time. In ancient times, stoning to death was a common form of exiling a scapegoat. Today cancelling people online is a more subtle form of the same phenomenon. We can all benefit from recognizing that scapegoating is wrong and our “rivals” are just humans too. Hackatao is a true pioneer of cryptoart and it has been fun conveying this message with them”. Nick Tomaino
