The Artist Series is a collection of CryptoKitties inspired by creatives in the blockchain ecosystem. Our first Artist Series release features four CryptoKitties by Momo Wang, a multiple award-winning and internationally recognised illustrator based in Beijing.
Momo Wang, who is a contributing artist thanks to our partnership with Animoca Brands, is the creator of the highly popular Tuzki character, a black and white line drawing of a bunny that is one of the most recognised characters in China and used widely across various instant messaging platforms. Over 40 million Tuzki stickers are sent daily on Facebook and WeChat!
The Momo Wang collection features four avant-garde cats inspired by DADA ballet costumes that each possess an authentic take on the genetic makeup of a CryptoKitty. A second look at any of these cats will reveal something you did not see previously. A direct challenge to our very own Doc Purr, Momo Wang channeled their inner Mad Scientist to redefine the meaning of genetic mutations.
Momo’s first CryptoKitty, Catterina, will be a Special Edition sold in a limited run of 100 exclusively priced at $100 and available on Nifty Gateway. You can purchase these Kitties with your credit card on May 14th at 4:00pm Pacific Time.
Nifty Gateway is a platform for collectors and artists that allow the exhibition and trading of rare artworks.
Half of all proceeds from this sale will go to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada to help communities impacted by Covid-19 by providing safe access to food. Your support will help lessen the burden on these nation-wide networks dealing with the increased demand due to illness, closures and job disruptions.
The 1 of 1 Momo Wang Exclusive CryptoKitty will be unveiled once all 100 Special Edition Kitties sell out. This CryptoKitty is purrfect for any rare art collection.
If you’re addicted to breeding, there are two incredibly special Momo Wang Kitties reserved as Fancies to breed to your heart’s desire. The first of the pair will be breedable starting from May 23rd for a limited time.
