David Bowie’s ‘Bowie On The Blockchain’ Digital Art Project To Be Released Next Week

A new David Bowie digital art project, approved by the late artist’s estate, goes live next week.

The company is a partnership between Bowie’s estate, the OpenSea NFT marketplace, and Andrew D. Keller and Joaquin Acrich’s Web3 company We Love The Arts.

Bowie On The Blockchain, which launches on OpenSea on September 13, is billed as “NFT’s first multi-artist sale” bringing together the work of nine NFT artists.

Each artist, including Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, “created their own version in tribute to David Bowie and his influence on their artistic and personal identity,” according to a press release.

Tolokonnikova said in a statement about Bowie On The Blockchain: “David Bowie is the platonic ideal of an artist, energetic, passionate, imaginative, magnetic, putting art x curiosity x substrate above profit, always a magician and muse. I am in awe and always will be. David Bowie is my father.”

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale, which will go to Bowie’s estate, will be donated to the humanitarian organization CARE, for which Bowie’s widow, Iman, serves as Global Advocate.

In other Bowie news, the late artist will be honored next week with a place on the Music Walk of Fame in Camden, north London.

“David Bowie is a world player, one of the most influential people, and sooner or later we had to have him on the Music Walk of Fame,” Lee Bennett, founder of the Music Walk of Fame, said in a statement.

“It is our intention that this is the highest honor a musician can receive in the UK and beyond, and the unveiling of David’s Stone guarantees that legacy. We have big plans for the future, but for now , let’s celebrate one of the most famous people in music.
