Digital artist Fvckrender, in collaboration with LVCIDIA and Fair.xyz, is introducing an evolving NFT, called FLUX, which will be exclusively available on the Base blockchain as part of Coinbase’s “On Chain Summer” event, beginning August 30 for 48 hours.
FLUX represents a remarkable fusion of art and technology, presenting a novel concept – 1 NFT that hosts a collection of 12 distinct artworks.
Over the course of each month, the ERC-721 token will visually transform to showcase a new piece by an up-and-coming artist, offering them a mechanism to expand their collector base.
Since its inception 10 months ago, Fair.xyz has facilitated creators in amassing over $10 million through primary and secondary sales through a track record of launching over 4,000 digital art collections and approximately 1 million mints.
Those who choose to engage with the FLUX NFT have the option to ‘lock’ their NFT to a specific artwork, effectively making the art piece a permanent display within their growing personal collection. This interactive and gamified experience challenges collectors to choose between cherishing the current artwork indefinitely or taking a chance with an entirely new masterpiece on the upcoming month’s artistic lineup.
The inaugural phase of this 12-month artistic journey is spearheaded by Fvckrender. His debut contribution to the FLUX series, titled “FLORAFENCE//,” sets the tone for the series.
Following Fvckrender’s lead, 11 additional artists have been carefully selected to present their unique art pieces. For NFTs that remain ‘non-locked’ by the end of the year, they will seamlessly revert back to featuring Fvckrender’s original artwork, completing the cycle.
A noteworthy aspect of the FLUX project is that there is no limit on the number of FLUX NFTs that can be purchased during the initial sale. This unique approach grants collectors the freedom to engage with and lock in multiple artworks over the course of the year, thus contributing to the dynamic evolution of their personal collections.
In an effort to celebrate and promote the participating artists, LVCIDIA’s digital platforms will shine a spotlight on each monthly artist. This spotlight includes an in-depth interview that will be turned into an editorial article, offering audiences valuable insights into the artists’ creative processes and inspirations.
Additionally, LVCIDIA curators Bonglo, Roger Dickerman, and Ryan McCue will lead exclusive live Twitter Space conversations with the featured artists, providing audiences with an interactive and immersive way to engage with the creators.
FLUX’s arrival on the Base blockchain marks a significant step forward in the NFT space, combining innovation, artistry, and community engagement to create a truly unique and evolving digital art experience.
