Highly regarded Ghanaian artist Kojo Marfo announces his own NFT series
Marfo's upcoming NFT collection is a logical extension of his work ethic
Ghanaian artist Coyo Marfo is delighted to announce his upcoming NFT collection. The collection will be minted throughout April 2022 in collaboration with J.D. Malat Gallery and borrow items from Pablo Picasso, artifacts and masks.
Works of art are a powerful tool to highlight social issues and offer different perspectives on sensitive issues. Kojo Marfo sees art primarily as a means of communication, which allows him to use growing creativity and ideas. Marfo’s upcoming NFT collection is a logical extension of his work ethic and underscores the current evolution of society.
For Marfo, NFT is a means of reaching new people, whether they want to invest or are passionate about the art world. Irreplaceable tokens are the next frontier of communication for artists and create a connection between the real and digital world.
The NFT collection, created by Coyo Marfo, will mean those strong ties to physical robots. The collection is based on a database of 250 characteristics distributed using an algorithm to create unique NFT. In addition, the work is inspired by the history and Ghanaian origin of Marfo. There are three important pillars in this collection:
Artistic vision: increasing the visibility of Marfo’s work through new connections
Charity: Some of the proceeds will be donated to a select charity. Marfo wants to help children or people who find themselves in difficult situations.
The combination of the real and digital world: NFT allows more people to experience Marfo’s artworks and get them if they want. In addition, immutable tokens can attract a new audience.
Kojo Mafo’s upcoming NFT collection was made possible by J.D. Malat Gallery. The gallery has allowed more than 1,000 artists in the UK to showcase their work, and Marfo’s work has been praised. Today, Marfo is exclusively represented by the J.D. Malat Gallery, but his NFT can reach a global audience.
Kojo Marfo wants to convey hope and understanding to all current and future collectors of his work. Take the time to think, sit, and think about the journey we call life.
More information about the upcoming Kojo Marfo collection will be announced on Twitter.
