On June 13th 2021, young digital artists worldwide made DIGITAL ART HISTORY by celebrating the first-ever #NFTCHILDRENSDAY! An incredible idea thought of by none other than 12yo Nyla the creator of the signature pieces Long Neckies and DJ Ugly Catnip.
The NFT Community parted the crypto sea and cheered on the digital arts made by young masterminds of all ages. For the first time, kid artists were given a voice and platform to show off their creations and claim their spot on this high NFT wave. This event has allowed us to find some of the youngest NFT creators in the world; a 9month old baby and 2 years old toddler.
NFTs are still an obscure concept to most. No one could have foreseen how the blockchain would change the game and rules within the art and the creative world forever. Digital artists have now taken the reigns and are calling the shots of their own accord.
But what will the future hold for blockchains in the creative space? It’s still too early to comprehend fully. One thing is for sure, traditional art distribution, book publishing and even copyright laws will take an unprecedented hit. NFTs will send shockwaves through countless industries as the tables will now favour artists and creators.
We all know that NFTs have changed the lives of the likes of Beeple, who sold paintings for a mind-blowing $69million. Then another surprise was the funky flying pop-tart cat which sold for $600,000! No wonder parents are rushing to pick up their kids from their after-school arts program (or slapping down their laptops after useless online schooling) to shove a paintbrush or Wacom pen in their hands.
Parents, this is the time you can now bank on your kid’s art stuck to your fridge. Go through that old box tucked away in your garage and mint the lot. You never know what will catch on. All bets are off. Anything goes. If Crypto Punk can do it, so can your kid!
The Metaverse is an exciting and unpredictable vast space where one could easily and happily get lost in hence why we have created 'NFT Kids Mag', the 1st and biggest NFT community and magazine for kids. Our mission is to provide a fun platform for children and creators of kid-friendly loveable art to showcase their works to the masses. This fantastic project is co-founded by 12yo @Gemeidon, a digital artist and an avid landscape photographer with over 450k views on Google maps.
To celebrate the 1st ever #NFTchildrensday, our team had the immense pleasure of creating some of the promotional material.
It was important for us to highlight the brilliant kid artists we have come across, so we put together this incredible mural...
