Billelis &“The Graveyard”: sacrifices have been made!


Just in case you missed it, here is last week’s interview with Bilelis, where we had the opportunity to explore the details of “The Graveyard”, his latest drop on Nifty Gateway.

 

 

Billelis is a digital artist based in the city of Edinburgh, creatively addicted to dark imagery and adorned artistry that leads him to spend countless hours experimenting, learning, and expanding his artistic skill set. All activities, that brought to life his personal style can be best described as a dark, yet elegant, romantic fusion.

 

This week “The Graveyard” took its collectors on a journey from death and decay to life and immortality as a symbol of the perfect cycle of life and death through 50 unique artworks spread out under four tiers of life: Immortality, Life, Decay, and Death.

Tiers, only accessable to those willing to sacrifice their most treasured pieces from Billelis’ previous collections.

Needless to say, sacrifices have been made…for the price of something extraordinary in return.

 



Meat broke the Internet with Diewithmostlikes’ “we were greeted”


“our future is tainted meat and perpetual receipts. our savings is our savior. our nails find familiar wounds. and seek salvation in collapsing wood. our climax is an unreciprocated orgasm.” 🥲🥩

This week meat broke the Internet with Diewiththemostlike’s “we were greeted”.

On August 17th, the piece was sold to collector rosesvault and marked as sold for 30,000 ETH for a value of over $55m within CryptoArt’s system, positioning it as the most expensive NFT artwork sold to date, right behind Beeple’s.

A sales, that had all of us screaming out of excitement.

Unfortunately, it turns out that in the end, there was a bug in the system and that the piece was actually acquired in $RARE and not in ETH, so not the second most expensive artwork YET…but either way, we’re always here for the meat and are loving it. Iconic. Congrats to Diewiththemostlikes!
