According to the program’s website, the aim is to collaborate with up-and-coming artists and provide a “creative pathway for digital artists to further connect with the brand and their passionate community of collectors and connoisseurs.”
Adra Kandil, also known as Dearnostalgia and Moto (Monkeemoto) have been unveiled as the first two resident artists of the program, and things will kick off with the sale of two open edition and two limited edition NFT art sales on Sept. 6.
