Crypto-Pills by Micha Klein
August 27, 2021 @ 12:00 am - September 30, 2021 @ 11:30 pm
Internationally renowned artist and digital pioneer Micha Klein has announced the release of his first-ever limited NFT collection, comprising 10,000 unique avatars dubbed ‘Crypto-Pills’.
Crypto-Pills are inspired by Klein’s iconic ‘Pillman’ character, conceived at the height of 90’s rave culture and popularized further by Eminem when featured as a digital backdrop to his Anger Management Tour (2000).
Each algorithmically generated Crypto-Pill is stored on the Ethereum blockchain and represented by a highly detailed, 3000px resolution character featuring any combination of 37 categories and 504 traits, creating a hierarchy of rarity.
Crypto-Pills is the first major NFT avatar collection to be launched in Hong Kong and the artist’s first major project in Asia.
Crypto-Pills will drop at 23:11hrs (HKT), 27 August 2021 on Crypto-Pills.com for 0.07 ETH each, with the identity of each character to be revealed at the time of minting.
Klein will donate 5 percent of all proceeds to Save The Children, aimed at benefiting disadvantaged children worldwide.
Klein is considered one of the world’s foremost digital artists, with a career spanning over 30 years in digital art and works that grace the collections of major institutions in the U.S. and Europe.
CryptoPills’ digital drop will be accompanied by a physical showcase at Start Art Gallery, the first physical crypto art gallery to open globally (K11 MUSEA, Hong Kong, 27 August – 30 September 2021). This will form part of Start Art Gallery’s inaugural exhibition.
