Trevor Jones’ EthBoy takes over London’s Oxford Street for exclusive NFT drop

Trevor Jones' EthBoy takes over London’s Oxford Street for exclusive NFT drop

Tomorrow, NFT lead artist Trevor Jones, who is based in Scotland, will release the next move of his innovative programmable art project.

Already a leader in the art world in terms of NFTs, he painted Ethereum Boy, a parody of Pablo Picasso’s Paul. As a tribute to Picasso’s creative genius, the picture depicts a Harlequin-clad man.

Trevor’s collaboration with Alotta Money 

Trevor collaborated with crypto artist Alotta Money and digital artist, producer, and DJ Don Diablo to create the ETHEREAL Collection, which established a new benchmark for a programmable Async Art project. This was the first drop in a ten-part series, and the intention was for the painting to change daily based on factors such as the price of Ethereum, gas fees, and Vitalik Buterin’s birthday, who created the Ethereum network and whose baby face appears in the painting.

Utilizing the programmable accessories layer, the experiment tracks Vitalik’s ups and downs in life. Every six months for five years, a new chapter is released as an NFT, making each animation approximately 182 days long. Tomorrow, the fourth segment of the project will commence, with world-renowned DJ Sasha performing as a guest musician.

To celebrate the partnership and Vitalik‘s birthday, EthBoy will take over the prestigious space in the windows of London’s Flannels, 167 Oxford Street, for a one-day exclusive of this one-of-a-kind art and music collaboration.

DJ Sasha says, “ Trevor was one of the first artists that I noticed and was inspired by when I first became aware of NFTs. After dipping my toe into the space with the LUZoSCURA and most recently the TEN drop, the chance to collaborate with Trevor came up – and of course, I jumped at it. I love the story that ETH Boy tells – continually documenting the events happening in this brave new digital art world. I wanted the audio accompanying the piece to capture the highs, lows and bittersweet turbulence of ETH Boy’s last 6 months. “

Collectors of previous Chapters in the series will also receive ownership revenue. All purchasers will receive a portion of the profits, demonstrating that they all have a stake in the future of Trevor Jones’s work. The owner of the EthBoy NFT will receive an artist-signed, limited-edition print of the original oil painting.

Trevor Jones is best known for his Bitcoin Angel painting, which is based on Bernini’s baroque marble sculpture The Ecstasy of St. Teresa. “In such a fast-paced and volatile space, having the opportunity to take the lead in an innovative, long term project with the late, great Alotta along with many of the biggest name musical artists exploring web3 is an honour and a privilege. Many in the web3 community think in terms of months rather than years and therefore this half-decade-long collaborative project will undoubtedly become a historic work of art and a grail for the 10 collectors/partners involved,” he said. 

The founder of W1 Curates, Mark Dale, explains, “Our digital exhibition space is a one-of-a-kind public art platform that aims to bridge the gap between digital art and traditional art. “Our digital exhibition space is a one-of-a-kind public art platform dedicated to bridging the gap between digital art and the traditional art world. Located in the prime location of Oxford Street, London, our site offers brand new state-of-the-art floor-to-ceiling digital screens, providing a unique interactive experience for the viewer. It’s an honour to bring this unique art and music collaboration to Life. This project is all about connecting people through music and art, and we want to share it with as many people as possible.”

Trevor is a classically trained painter with a degree in fine art. He has worked at the intersection of art and technology for over a decade, experimenting with QR code paintings and augmented reality (AR). When he purchased Bitcoin in 2017, it sparked a new concept for his artwork, resulting in his crypto-themed augmented reality paintings and his passion for NFTs in art.

His Art Angels podcast, in which he discusses digital artists from around the world, has also helped the artists he has chosen to promote earn significantly more money.

EthBoy NFT painting continues to rise with fourth edition

Vitalik Buterin in a harlequin suit is shown in a generative piece of art that changes every day based on data from the outside world.

In honor of the Ethereum co-birthday, a new version of EthBoy, a non-fungible token (NFT) that shows Vitalik Buterin in a harlequin suit, will come out on Tuesday.

Trevor Jones created the NFT collection and is releasing the fourth edition of his generative art in the style of Pablo Picasso’s “Paul as Harlequin.” The latest animated version, called TRANSCEND, was made with Grammy-winning DJ Sasha, and it will be shown on London’s Oxford Street.

Jones’ NFT is part of ETHEREAL

The NFT is part of a bigger collection called ETHEREAL. Jones worked with artists Alotta Money and DJ Don Diablo on ETHEREAL, and every six months for the next five years, NFT platform Async Art will release a new version of Ethboy.

Async Art lets people make digital art that changes over time and responds to outside data and stimuli. The painting changes every day because of things like the price of Ethereum, the cost of network gas, and more. Buterin’s birthday is on January 31, so the latest, one-of-a-kind edition is a way to celebrate.

In a press release, Jones said that the goal of the collection is to tell the story of Buterin’s life.

Jones said, “Many in the Web3 community think in terms of months rather than years and therefore this half-decade-long collaborative project will undoubtedly become a historic work of art and a grail for the 10 collectors and partners involved.”

Jones said that the NFT space has changed a lot since the first chapter of the collection came out. For example, there are now new digital art trends and the market is cold.

Jones adds there is still a demand for 1/1 art and artists, even though AI and generative art have been very popular in the past year and open editions have made a huge comeback. FTX’s failure has had an effect, but the NFT art space is still lively and interesting.

Jones and the artist Alotta Money made the first edition of EthBoy together in 2020. It sold for 260 ETH, which was worth $141,536 at the time.
