Murakami and Hublot Collaborate
Famous contemporary artist Takashi Murakami and luxury watch brand Hublot have announced their fourth joint artist project, which will include thirteen new NFTs and thirteen unique timepieces. This marks their third collaboration since January 2021, demonstrating their commitment to using new forms of artistic expression to bridge digital works with the real world.
Limited Edition Watches
Hublot plans to showcase twelve luxury watches at Watches and Wonders 2023 in Geneva, while also making them available online on their website. Access to the online auction is exclusive to owners of at least one of the 324 NFTs that were issued in April 2022 as part of the third collaboration between Murakami and Hublot, including those from “Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Back” and “Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow” models. In addition, anyone interested may collect an NFT on OpenSea until sales commence in Geneva in early April this year.
The thirteen upcoming unique NFTs will be inspired by Japanese video games and TV shows from the 1970s, along with “Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black” designs. Through this project, they are aiming to reward collectors of the first NFTs with an exclusive approach.
New Forms of Artistic Expression
Murakami shared his thoughts on partnering once more with Hublot: “When my collaboration with Hublot was announced, we made it known that we would be adopting new forms of artistic expression…we are now imagining new ways of accessing contemporary art.“ They are continuing their past projects by offering collectors a chance at owning these limited edition pieces through both physical and digital means.
Takashi Murakami and luxury watch brand Hublot have created a one-of-a-kind collection featuring thirteen unique NFTs linked to thirteen limited edition Classic Fusion watches for customers all around the world to appreciate both physically or digitally – a perfect melding between traditional watchmaking craftsmanship combined with modern artistry expressions!
