Contemporary artists and Metaverse pioneer Philip Colbert will be minting his NFT Collection “The Lobstars” on April 10th 2022, for 0.77 ETH. Colbert has nurtured a global following with his Lobster persona. With yearly sales in the multi-millions, Colbert’s hyper pop paintings and sculptures have become something of a worldwide art phenomenon. His work is in leading museums and private collections worldwide.
His first 1/1 NFT (The Cryptofixtion) sold on super rare for 26ETH, and recently, he sold The Lobstar Genesis NFT and a matching portrait at Bonhams Auction house in London for $60,000. Colbert also launched his city Lobsteropolis in June 2021. It remains the most prominent art world in Decentraland.
After creating Lobsteropolis, taking the project to the next level became clear. It was time to build the community. Hence, The Lobstars, the citizens of Lobsteropolis.
The 7,777 generative NFTs will serve as entry into Colbert’s Lobster world as holders become citizens of Lobsteropolis, an ever-expanding art experience. That will blur the lines between reality and digital!”
Colbert has worked with some great projects to build up a hugely engaged community of art, popular culture and Web3 enthusiasts with the first opportunities to mint, followed by public and art gallery waiting lists.
There will be a party planned in Decentraland on April 12th 2022, to celebrate the mint and welcome our new citizens.
The Lobstars” will be available for mint on April 10th 2022, for 0.77 ETH
