#10 Girl with a Pearl Earring – Reinterpretation by @grif was collected by @arlogo for $67,993

Girl with a Pearl Earring – Reinterpretation
Edition 1 of 1
Here in the re-imagining of ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ (Johannes Vermeer 1665), the flat oil painting becomes dimensionalized. We step through the looking glass and into the portrait, frozen in time. The camera explores a more intimate relationship with our subject, investigating the details of the cracking paint and subtle light across her face. The form of the girl becomes appended with a blooming floral arrangement, representing the passing of time with something that is timeless, nature. Part of the Equinox Collection

#9 Going Green by @grif was collected by @artoninternet for $76,761

TIME Is God Dead?
Edition 1 of 1
TIME Magazine, April 8th, 1966. Is _ Dead? is one of the most iconic cover designs in TIME’s 98-year history. Originally published on April 8, 1966, “Is God Dead?” was the first cover in the brand’s storied history to include only typography with no image and was designed for a story by TIME religion editor John Elson. As Elson wrote, “it is a question that tantalizes both believers, who perhaps secretly fear that he is, and atheists, who possibly suspect the answer is no.” The cover inspired countless angry sermons, 3,421 letters from readers and a lively debate at a time when 97% of Americans told pollsters they believed in God. This NFT is part of an exclusive series of three incredibly prescient TIME covers, including one of the most iconic covers in TIME’s 98-year history, and the first-ever cover designed exclusively as a NFT. The typography used on the 1966 cover was based on Bodoni Poster, designed by Chauncey H. Griffith in 1929. The bold contrasting strokes, strong verticality and easily recognizable serifs and ball terminals were perfectly suited for advertisements, posters and signs in the early 20th century. The typography on the two most recent covers needed to be hand drawn, as we could find no modern type foundry which has an exact interpretation of the one used on the original cover.

The first collaboration and creative union of the artists Skygolpe & Reisinger Andres.

TIME Is Fiat Dead?
Edition 1 of 1
TIME Magazine, Special NFT Edition, March 29th / April 5th, 2021. Is _ Dead? is one of the most iconic cover designs in TIME’s 98-year history. Originally published on April 8, 1966, “Is God Dead?” was the first cover in the brand’s storied history to include only typography with no image and was designed for a story by TIME religion editor John Elson. More than a half century later, in response to President Donald Trump and the truth, TIME’s April 3, 2017 cover asked “Is Truth Dead?” Four years later, amid the stratospheric rise of NFTs and adoption of cryptocurrencies, TIME returns to the stark black field and red bold typography to once again ask a provocative question, “Is Fiat Dead? Inspired by the moment, TIME’s Creative Director D.W. Pine notes: “The word ‘fiat’ isn’t necessarily a commonly used phrase in American culture. Truth be told, I had to look it up. But it affects every global citizen. And I love the idea that it’s meaning isn’t clear to the casual viewer – much like the crazy, lucrative world of NFTs.” This is an exclusive series of three incredibly prescient TIME covers, including one of the most iconic covers in TIME’s 98-year history, and the first-ever cover designed exclusively as a NFT. The typography used on the 1966 cover was based on Bodoni Poster, designed by Chauncey H. Griffith in 1929.

Edition 1 of 1
TIME Magazine, April 3rd, 2017. Is _ Dead? is one of the most iconic cover designs in TIME’s 98-year history. Originally published on April 8, 1966, “Is God Dead?” was the first cover in the brand’s storied history to include only typography with no image and was designed for a story by TIME religion editor John Elson. More than a half century later, in response to President Donald Trump and the truth, TIME’s April 3, 2017 cover asked “Is Truth Dead?” At the time, editor Nancy Gibbs wrote: “just like many said they believed in God in 1966, many today would say they believe in Truth, and yet we find ourselves having an intense debate over its role and power in the face of a President who treats it like a toy. What does he actually believe? Does it count as lying if he believes what he says?” This is an exclusive series of three incredibly prescient TIME covers, including one of the most iconic covers in TIME’s 98-year history, and the first-ever cover designed exclusively as a NFT.
