Art Blocks Next Curated Drop Is From Maya Man
Art Blocks officially revealed its next curated release: FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT by Maya Man.
The collection is expected to go live on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 1 p.m. ET.
Maya Man is an internationally-recognized artist with works displayed at SOOT Tokyo, Vellum Los Angeles, Power Station of Art Shanghai, Times Square, and Feral File. Her work has also been featured in America, Forbes, Refinery29, Dance Magazine, and others, according to her personal website.
"[A] great project and different than Art Blocks usual aesthetic, this project will push collectors to break out of their norms," the curation board said. "FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT is an innovative addition to Art Blocks' Curated Collection and is reflective of Maya Man's artistic style and voice. The phrases are clever and niche, and the aestetic is simple and identifiable. The project transcends code to become something more."
"Genius," the curation board continues. "[We're] very drawn to the strange playful basis of this work. FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT is a real work of contemporary art. This project is unique and is an interesting response to our current time, even more so with the culture adjacent to the movement we are currently experiencing with NFTs and crypto."
Sample outputs of the project are available on Art Blocks' website here.
