The Museum of Modern African Art Gallery and Lifestyle (MOMAA), a platform promoting African artwork, recently launched a 30-day exhibition of modern African art without a Fungible Token (NFT). The exhibition, which will be MOMAA’s first NFT showcase, shows the work of Goran Pin, or the portraitist. Pin, a Croatian citizen, is an artist who “pushes the edges of the crypto art medium on multiple levels”.
According to a statement on the MOMAA website, the portraits’ Kings and Queens Collection will be the focus of this exhibition. The NFT collection contains the “first portraits of African kings embossed on the blockchain”.
The statement adds:
It is the first NFT collection of royal families from all worlds, and 30 out of 32 portraits from the Kings and Queens Collection are the first portraits of these people to be imprinted on blockchain at the same time.
As the statement indicates, the portraits of two African kings, King Letsie III and King Mswati III, will be included in the portraitist’s collection.
Meanwhile, the Declaration also praises Pin for choosing to combine “traditional art with crypto art”. While his work is “highly collectible”, MOMAA notes that the artist has nonetheless decided to “postpone auction sales of his entire Kings and Queens collection.”
