Timeless NFTs

Crypto holders have been given the opportunity to purchase an exclusive limited number of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) taken from the work of legendary American landscape artist Thomas Kinkade. 

The NFT platform Featured by Binance has combined with Art Brand Studios to bring you an insider drop of 10 NFTs taken from Kinkade’s much loved The Spirit of New York painting. Art Brand Studios, the renowned organization that retains the rights to Kinkade’s works’, is behind the insider drop and has certified that the authentic source from Kinkade’s original oil painting is used. 

“Featured is proud to contribute to a vibrant and diverse NFT art ecosystem.” The CEO of Featured, Teck Chia, told us. “We are honored to partner with Art Brand Studios to feature such timeless master painters like Thomas Kinkade. We had a few of his paintings in my house when I was growing up. It’s fantastic to see the coolest tech product in the world, i.e. DeFi NFTs, being used to commemorate Mr. Kinkade. And this is just the early insider drop. We have even cooler NFTs coming up.”

The introduction of the work of Thomas Kinkade to the NFT space will send reverberations throughout the art world, as we may well see a shift from a market dominated by crypto-artists to representations of more traditional pieces.

Often termed as the ‘Painter of Light,’ Kinkade’s work retains huge respect and has inspired the creation of an entire village in Vallejo, California. The hugely popular American artist is well remembered by a generation whose homes housed his wonderful work. 

According to The Guardian, In a period of unparalleled success, between 1995 and 2005, there were over 350 Kinkade franchises throughout the United States, with a great many of his native California. 

The numbers try to but are never quite able to quantify the huge admiration many shared for the work of Thomas Kinkade, and this latest NFT drive is likely to inspire a great deal of interest.
