Iconic. Essential. Mr Buterin stands out as one of the major works of the French artist 0xec6d0. Fundamental element of the "5 Satoshis", Mr Buterin stands as an unparalleled pictorial element, paying homage to the founder of Ethereum: Vitalik Buterin.
Exchangeable for 60 “Mr Buterin” NFTs or available for purchase at €350,000, this work remains a myth. Exceptional in its scope. Exceptional by the NFTs generated, Mr Buterin is one of the artist's 5 major paintings. Neon pink, powerful, kept in a safe somewhere in France, few have seen it IRL, may have the opportunity to approach it, and perhaps possess it.
More than a work of art, a quest for those who will try to accumulate at least 60 of their generated NFTs, to perhaps own it. Like Manzoni, 0xec6d0 offers an unparalleled offer: 60 against 1 real, or €350,000.
Mocked, criticized. This work, as irrational as it may be, remains a departure for the artist, a basis on which other projects, as large and as powerful, will be grafted. Also viral. A legendary object that only art collectors will understand and perhaps own one day.
For fans of the artist or art enthusiasts: Here we find heavy body Liquitex, Sennelier pastel and a Lefranc Bourgeois primary yellow. The red tape is still there. The fish is still there for this artist who claims to be Christian and conservative. 3 small circles which materialize the thinker at 0xec6d0. An essential set of techniques and symbolism specific to the artist.
"I'm not particularly a fan of Vitalik. I'm not a fan of anyone else. But I recognize genius. Avant-gardism. When we were having drinks at a friend's house at 11 o'clock in the evening, gushing about the generalization of 720p Youtube and 3G, he was already thinking about what came next. Scalability and smart contacts on the blockchain.
I often pay tribute to him. People like him are rare. By definition precious."
