Madonna is the latest star to get into NFT, but she’s doing it for a good cause
She is team up with digital artist Beeplea.k.a mike winkelmanwhich made headlines last year when one of his NFTswas auctioned by Christie’s for $69,400,000. The two created a three part digital illustration called mother of creation, which “explores the concept of birth via darkness and light in our modern world”.
The three NFTs will be sold on super rare on May 11 with a starting price of one dollar. All proceeds will go to three charities: The Children’s Voice Foundation, The City of Joy Foundation and The Black Mama Bailout.
The three parts of the job include mother of naturewith a flowering tree and new text by Madonna; mother of evolutionwhich features butterflies, lyrics from Madonna’s hit “Justify My Love” and original music by Igor Bardykin; and mother of technologywhich depicts how science can enlighten the world and presents the poetry of Rumi.
“When Mike and I decided to collaborate on this project a year ago, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to share my worldview as a mother and artist with Mike’s unique perspective,” Madonna said in a statement. “It was an incredible journey of building together an intellectual idea to an emotional story, giving birth to art.”
She adds: “Most importantly, we wanted to take this opportunity to help the mothers and children who need it the most right now.
Madonna and Beeple will be on SuperRare’s Twitter spaces on May 11 at 7 p.m. ET to discuss the project.
