After sportspersons, rockstars, film stars, and celebrities, globally famed 3D artist Gal Yosef is the next to join the NFT mania. Yosef recently launched his Meta Eagle Club NFT collection backed by the internationally acclaimed Eden Gallery. 

Art, Artists, and NFTs

Over the last year, the NFT mania triggered by prominent names like Snoop Dogg, Grimes, and others has been crucial in pushing new artists on the NFT train.

Gal Yosef is another well-known name in the 3D art and NFT community. The artist has been behind the Crypto Bulls Society collection which was sold out soon after the launch and generated over $50 million in primary sales and market auctions. 

Furthermore, Yosef has worked with Justin Bieber, DJ Steve Aoki, and others. The artist has been behind the unique NFT project created through collaborations with celebrities that got sold at Sotheby’s for $214,000. The most recent collection by Yosef will feature the artist’s well-detailed, life-like cartoon-style avatars. 

Additionally, Meta Eagle Club features a digital art world named Galyverse. The first collection in the Galyverse spans 12,000 captivating eagle avatars. The Meta Eagle Club aims to merge upscale art with community building, exclusive physical gallery events, and an evolving artistic vision.

The collection could also support NFT collectors by bringing physical artwork to Eagle avatar owners. That process is made possible with the help of Eden Gallery and its NFT studio RNSNC. 

That said, the collaboration with the internationally acclaimed Eden Gallery could be a crucial turning point in the NFT space helping art galleries merge with the crypto-verse. 

NFTs Taking Over The Art World

As NFT projects from critically acclaimed artists are taking center stage. It is notable that the year 2022 began on a high note for the NFT space.

In the first couple of days of the year, multiple Grammy award winner Marshall Bruce Mathers, better known by his stage name Eminem, had joined the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) after purchasing one of the NFTs for 123.45 ETH ($452,000), as reported in a previous article. 

More recently, popular actress, Lindsay Lohan, joined the Superfandom team as an adviser and announced the launch of her ‘experiential NFTs.’ Soccer star Neymar Jr. had also acquired two BAYC NFTs, joining other popular celebrities including Paul Pogba, and DJ Khaled in acquiring NFTs.
