Rare Batman NFT Digital Art Series was sold for 540 Ether


NFTs will change the market for art workers forever, everybody knows that. Worldwide, more than $131 million worth of NFTs have been sold in the last few years, according to data from nonfungible.com.

A five-piece collection of Batman digital art was sold for a combined 540.86 ether on Makersplace, which set a new all time high for NTF in the art world.

The artwork was created by DC comic artist José Delbo and Trevor Jones, and it's made of sketches, painting and little animations.

The highest price was for Genesis which sold for 302.5 ethereum ETH, about $113,000, at current exchange rates.

Here's the description of the author:

José Delbo sent me his striking pencil sketch and powerful inked work, which I then interpreted in oil on canvas. I wanted to create a very painterly piece with obvious brush marks etc, but I was also aiming for a nostalgic feel, a kind of 1980’s superhero comic book look, the kind I grew up with.

My goal with this animation was to try to recreate, in part, the creative process that both artists went through with the visual information I had. I was able to showcase my painting process more accurately as I could take photographs of my progress throughout. Consecutive images could then be layered like brush strokes over José’s drawing to create the impression that this was one continuous artwork from pencil, to ink, to completed painting.

The representation of the line sketch at the beginning, then pencil/ink and lastly the paint layers being applied demonstrate both artists’ struggle for the right lines, tone, form, and colour until the work is finally completed. As the oil was still wet with each photograph the glare of my studio lights can be seen in the brush strokes. Eventually, the figure emerges and as it does, our hero comes to life, looking directly at the viewer -- but is he grimacing in approval or disgust? We will never know for sure as just before he can say anything, white paint is brushed across the canvas entirely and the process begins again. Only the bat is quick enough to escape.

Anonymous collector Maxstealth beated competition to buy the artwork: Maxstealth, who boasts a range of artworks in his NFT collection, had already spent more than $55,000 on another Batman piece titled “Who is the Creator 2.” The private collector was the biggest spender in the Oct. 17 auction.

The current record for non-fungible-token digital art is held by Matt Kane’s “Right Place & Right Time,” a piece that changes every day with the bitcoin price volatility, which sold for 262 ETH or $101,100 in September.
