Grimes releases her debut NFT collection 'WarNymph' on NG!
Grimes, a multi-hyphenate artist, is well known for her music and visual language. She has taken form as a simulation combining gamer fantasy, anime and manga, science fiction, apocalyptic omens, and anachronistic fashion among other genres. Her most recent series of artwork, WarNymph, is realized with her collaborator, Mac Boucher.
WarNymph is the Goddess of Neo-Genesis. She battles the destructive force of obsolete ideas and systemic decay that threatens the future. She embodies the power of perpetual regeneration that manifests in a state of infinite infancy where she sheds her old skin of corruption.
The first of her kind, WarNymph is a digital entity spliced from a pixel DNA of the organic human, Grimes. Merging the raw images of a photogrammetry scan, enunciating her iconic tattoos, with a retopologized mesh that was sculpted, modelled, and morphed into a variety of forms before being permanently sealed into the body of a baby angel, a cherub. She exists in the liminal state of the virtual world, a Grimes narrative universe, within an alternate history of mythology and the infinite fragments of the future. She is a pioneer in the rapidly expanding metaverse.
Grimes, with the WarNymph project, explores the fluidity of identity in the virtual age: the ability to create, augment, and splinter ourselves into unlimited avatars, create boundless worlds, and build rich, complex lore.
In this first limited edition NFT release, WarNymph is presented in her earliest visual form and will continue to evolve as part of a broader, Oth3rkin universe.
A percentage of the proceeds from the WarNymph NFT sales will be donated to Carbon 180, a NGO dedicated to reducing carbon emissions.
