Renowned and respected feminist artist Lina Valentina is preparing to launch her first NFT series. Under the ‘No More’ banner, the collection will solidify women’s position within the Web 3.0 environment and denounce domestic violence.
“No More” Domestic Violence
Lina Valentina, one of the most prominent feminist artists, spoke in an interview with Cointribune about her NFT collection “No More”, which was designed to inspire courage for women who are still silent while facing such horrors.
The collection will include 7,777 unique NFTs, each representing a female face with the artistic touches that have made Lina Valentina famous (primarily the mouth and the open zipper).
It is on its way to becoming an iconic collection, much like the World of Women NFTs, which gained prominence by highlighting female artists in the web3 ecosystem.
Influencers such as Logan Paul, Alec Monopoly, and Gary Vee also bought NFTs from this collection, pushing this product to the forefront of the leading NFTs.
In fact over the last one month, the world of Women collection has been one of the top 20 most valuable collections generating $7.1 million in volume (3.26k ETH) with each NFT selling for an average price of 7.06 ETH ($15.3k)
Lina herself stated that she owned one of the NFTs that she bought for 8 ETH ($18,426) from the World of Women collection. Thus speaking about the about the unavoidable phenomenon that NFTs and art as a means of expression have been, Lina said,
“NFTs and art seem obvious, a new way for artists to express themselves and be heard. Many artists around me position themselves in the NFT sector.
Unfortunately there are still too few female artists in the field, only 5%. The “No More” series also aims to encourage women to invest in this booming sector.”
Furthermore, considering the potential of the “No More” NFTs, Lina Valentina outlined the stage-by-stage plan planned for engaging the community around the series.
As a first step, a digital gallery will be created in Metaverse, after which 300 lucky owners of a “No More” NFT will get the chance to receive a digital frame worth $800 to showcase their NFTs in the location of their choice.
The third stage concerns the strengthening of the bond between Lina and her fans. Owners of the NFTs will have the opportunity to meet the artist at a special exhibition at The Cool HeArt Gallery in Los Angeles.
Last but not least, in the fourth stage the NFT project will also take on a charitable aspect, as 10% of the income generated by the drop will be donated to Safe Horizon, an association that assists victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
NFTs bring a change
While Lina intends on bringing revolution in social matters with NFTs, Ukraine achieved the same by bringing a revolution in war aid.
After Russia invaded Ukraine, sympathy and support for the latter country came from all corners of the world. A huge chunk of this support also arrived in the form of cryptocurrencies.
To bolster that effort, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization – Ukraine DAO launched a fractionalized NFT flag of Ukraine, broken down into 3,271 individual units which managed to generate $6.75 million in war aid.
Thus, NFTs will become much more than just collectibles provided they are designed and developed accordingly.
About Lina Valetina
The name Lina Valentina is synonymous with the artistic scene across New York and Los Angeles. Lina has created various impactful art on walls, from New York to Brooklyn. Furthermore, her works can be found in the most prominent contemporary art galleries in Los Angeles and on the covers of INKspired and GoodweekendMag and more. Additionally, Lina’s collaboration with Adidas in 2018 is still fresh in people’s minds.
Lina Valentina uses painting and other art forms to encourage women to speak out against domestic violence, a pressing matter even today. She borrows elements from Salvador Dalí and her favorite music, creating some interesting artwork capable of kickstarting a meaningful conversation.
The NFT collection, dubbed ‘No More,’ follows the same path as Valentina’s paintings and other artwork. It is a tribute to women who suffered from domestic violence and decided to denounce it. Additionally, the collection will offer courage and hope to women who face this abuse but remain silent about it. ‘No More’ will feature 7,777 unique NFTs representing a female face.
On her upcoming collection, Lina Valentina said,
“NFTs and art seem obviousa new way for artists to express themselves and be heard. Many artists around me position themselves in the NFT sector. Unfortunately, there are still too few female artists in the field only five percent. The ‘No More’ series also aims to encourage women to invest in this booming sector.”
The collection will serve several utilities as the project unfolds, including the following.
- Creating a digital gallery in the metaverse to promote works by Lina Valentina and other artists promoting beneficial causes
- 300 ‘No More’ owners will receive a digital frame valued at $800, bringing the digital artworks to the real world
- A special exhibition for fans to meet Lina Valentina at The Cool HeArt Gallery in Los Angeles NFT holders receive preferential prices on physical works being exhibited
- Donate 10% of the income generated by the ‘No More’ drop to the Safe Horizon association, helping victims of domestic violence and sexual assault
The upcoming ‘No More’ NFT collection by Lina Valentina combines strong utility with a clear message and has the backing of a renowned artist. It may become the next major iconic collection sparking important conversations regarding a topic that is often avoided. Additionally, Valentina plans collaborations with famous personalities, with more information to be revealed in the coming months.
