Miami, Dec. 7, 2021 — Hangry Animals launched its star-studded entertainment nonfungible token (NFT) franchise on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 pm, creating the world’s first AR painting to be minted into an NFTduring Art Basel Miami. The launch included a live performance by LA graffiti artist and Belcastro founder Tylor Kenyon at a VIP yacht party.
Kenyon created a live painting of a yet-to-be-released Hangry Animal character, using a pair of state-of-the-art, RealMax 100 augmented reality (AR) glasses and AR drawing software that allows for inputs by hand gestures onboard the evening yacht cruise for the Art Basel Miami Beach show. The artwork was then paired with a Hangry Animal and minted into an NFT by veteran creator of crypto projects Coinburn.
The event, in cooperation with Live AR Events and Miami Swim Week, marked the ﬁrst instance of an artwork created live in an AR environment and minted into an NFT at Art Basel Miami. Kenyon also used the AR glasses to draw a Kitty Kat Coin emblem and the Graffiti bear from his own collection. All of the AR artwork was put up for auction.
The NFT was bundled with the AR headset used to create the painting and six other NFTs to be auctioned for the beneﬁt of IRL elephants and people. The auction for the NFT was exclusively for the attendees of the yacht party.
The net proceeds of the auction will go toward caring for 30 of the world’s remaining 800 Sumatra elephants living in Bali with the Mason family who rescued them from the devastation of deforestation 25 years ago. SaveBaliElephants.org, SavingGanesh.org, and Unity Learn will all benefit from the event.
The VIP evening cruise was hosted by the Belcastro Group Yacht Series and the creative team of Live AR Events, which collaborated with the owners of Miami Swim Week™ The Shows.
