In a private chat of MakersPlace platform users are discussing a collector under the nickname 888: they say he buys almost everything. Nobody knows anything about him. But there is an assumption that Elon Musk himself is hiding under the nickname 888. Some users have a different theory. It could be 888 Holdings PLC, a public company which owns several popular gambling brands and websites. But there is no confirmation of our theory yet. We suggest not to guess, but just to look at some of the works acquired by 888. By the way, this user owns Beeple’s THE 5000 DAY SELECTS.
Is 888 account owned by B20.Metapurse.Fund? Don’t know.
But today B20.Metapurse.Fund published the next information: “There is infinite upside to art. The first public art project of the metaverse, B.20 redefines the experience and ownership of art. B.20 bundles The Beeple 20 Collection – one of the most historic and valuable art projects in the NFT (non-fungible token) space – along with the VR monuments it lives in. The ownership of this bundle has been fractionalised into the B20 tokens. The bundle itself is immutable, unless bought out entirely, by anyone with the requisite DAI and B20 tokens. The experience will remain open. The ownership – in part or in full – is yours for the taking”.

“Hack” for the pleasure of discovering what’s hidden under the skin; “Tao” for Yin and Yang, their creative dynamic balance. Their very unique style, the combination of an extra detailed drawn part and a colorful painted flat style, makes them stand out at first glimpse. The harmonious and continuous flow of drawings, at times recalling the graffiti art in the play of fluxes and connections, finds its “cage “and home in the very defined pop borders and figures, resulting in a uniform visual whole.
A self-taught 3D artist from NYC currently based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. “I’m 35 years old and began learning 3D at 27. Before that, I was an unsuccessful insurance salesman and a pretty decent construction worker. This journey has been quite a trip and I’m extremely grateful that I am able to do this. My style of work gravitated towards taking familiar subjects and “abstractifying” them, while telling a story through relevant objects, and keeping the subject alive. For my portraits, I immerse myself in the character by absorbing every piece of content I can find about them. They become the center of my life for a good period of time”, – writes Alex.

Katy Arrington: “I’ve made art since I was a kid but had a very tumultuous relationship with it all of my life, battling life-long procrastination, until one day I decided to quit it completely.

I’m very proud of the work in this gallery that I created since I gave art another shot and very glad I didn’t give up. Welcome! Please enjoy :)”
