To raise awareness against atrocities against Ukrainian Children, 38 artists have collaborated to create a Unique NFT called ‘Mariupol.
It’s an interactive NFT; Mariupol is a living piece of art. It consists of 13 different layers, with each layer having between two to four unique states. The master owner of Mariupol can choose the final appearance from amongst these states.
Mariupol will be available for 14 collectors; one master NFT and 13 layers of NFTs. The bidding will be open to anyone, and collectible funds are for the donation of Voices of Children. This bidding will provide psychological support to child victims of war like Ukrainian Children.
Moreover, the NFT will be shown Non-Fungible Conference, and it will take place on April 4th and 5th in Lisbon, Portugal. The event will host numerous talks, panels, and workshops and exhibit artworks of more than 100 artists.
Contributors and Inspiration Through NFTs For Ukrainians.
The artwork is created under the supervision of The Guild. It is an independent and decentral artist-led collective. In addition to The Guild members, a contributing artist group had members from the Museum of Crypto Art and Non-Fungible Conference. Async Art also contributed to the creation of Mariupol with its dynamic NFT technology.
In addition, the artists who have done work for this NFT have given a significant influence was Picasso’s Guernica, where he expressed the horrors of the bombing of Guernica city in 1937. As a modern reinterpretation of Guernica, Mariupol also aims to encapsulate the brutality of war. Each contributing artist depicted their interpretations of the war, hoping it would serve as a reminder that we should not let history repeat itself.
Founder of Non-Fungible Conference, John Karp, commented on the purpose of Mariupol and said:
“Like everyone on this continent, and in this world, I am horrified by the images we are getting from Ukraine of innocent civilians being bombed once again. The horror, disgust, and pain force people to act.”
He further elaborated:
“It makes bystanders want to do something. I hope this artwork can be a testament to the power of community and collaboration and proof that, while there is still too much evil and suffering in this world, there is plenty of good lefts.”
Hopefully, Ukrainian children will get a fair share of what they deserve in the critical times of War.
