The premier marketplace for rare and authentic digital artworks, today announced the international footballing superstar and current A.C. Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimović, will be releasing his first ever NFT artwork, The Laws of Adrenaline: An NFT Collection curated with acclaimed Italian artists GionnyScandal, Hexaract, Manazza and Tresoldi. The Laws of Adrenaline: An NFT Collection will be released exclusively on MakersPlace beginning on March 24, 2022 at 6:00 PM CET.
The collection features original artworks curated by the world-famous, goal scoring legend who challenged artists to create works based on his latest autobiography, Adrenaline: My Untold Stories. Eleven quotes from his autobiography inspired these eleven artists in collaboration with producers ArtsLife, Wrong Theory, and ARTN to assemble this collection.
The collection includes fine abstract art from Hexeract and a portrait of a defiant Zlatan from rapper GionnyScandal. It also features an animated artwork that starts as a pencil drawing and morphs into a fearsome layover of Zlatan's imposing figure on that of his counterpart, the lion, by Manazza. The last piece in the drop highlights the many different facial emotions of the man himself featuring the colors of his historic club, AC Milan, by the artist Tresoldi. This drop will be the first of three through late June for The Laws of Adrenaline: An NFT Collection.
The first drop in the series will consist of one limited edition animation from Hexaract, one 1:1 image for private sale from GionnyScandal, and two open editions priced for fans, one animation from Manazza and one still image from Tresoldi, all curated by Zlatan Ibrahimović. If a collector purchases one of the open editions for each of the three drops they will receive one limited edition artwork airdropped as a bonus. This drop is structured as follows:
"Zlatan Ibrahimović is one of the most iconic and prolific athletes on the planet and we are excited to see him bring his passion and fervor to the NFT space," said Craig Palmer, CEO of MakersPlace. "We're very much looking forward to hosting the The Laws of Adrenaline series on MakersPlace, and truly enjoy being able to provide high quality artwork for art and sports enthusiasts alike by offering accessibility in purchasing NFTs from their favorite creators."
MakersPlace is the premier NFT marketplace for digital art. Launched in 2018, MakersPlace utilizes blockchain technology to facilitate the sale of authentic, original digital artwork, ensuring rarity and ownership for both creators and collectors. MakersPlace has emphasized accessibility since its inception and has attracted a large mainstream audience as the first NFT marketplace to accept both cryptocurrency (ETH) and non-cryptocurrency (USD) payments, which it facilitates through crypto wallet and credit card transactions, respectively. MakersPlace helped catapult digital art and NFTs onto the global stage, with the historic sale of Beeple's Everydays: The First 5000 Days for $69.3 million in partnership with Christie's auction house in March 2021 – the record price for any digital artwork.
