Fewocious

Fewocious is one of the most successful digital artists creating Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).  [1][19][20]
In June 2021, a collection of NFTs by Fewocious sold for $2.16 million at auction house Christie's. The collection was inspired by the 18-year-old artist’s experiences as a young, transgender artist. He is the youngest artist ever to be featured by Christie's. This sale brings his total NFT sales to over $20 million.[10][11][17][18]

As of April 2021, Fewocious is the third highest-selling NFT artist, following Beeple and Trevor Jones.[9]

Career

2020

Fewocious, who began his career by selling his artworks, emerged as one of the most successful stars of a new digital art movement driven by Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) creation.

In March 2020, Fewocious learned about Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) when he was offered $90 to sell one of his digital pieces as an NFT. He sold their first NFT through SuperRare. The NFT, called "She Makes Me Feel Alive," sold for 10 ETH on September 24, 2020 (about $6,000 at the time of purchase). Then in early November, Fewocious achieved a big sale: $25,000 for "Moment i Fell in Love". More five-figure sales followed soon after, including "The Modern Prometheus," which sold for 35 ETH (about $20,863) on December 2, 2020.

Fewocious again made crypto headlines In December 2020, when an "NYC Skyline" NFT piece commissioned by the co-founders of blockchain hedge fund Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano, and Jason Williams, fetched $21,350 at auction being sold to Scot Wingo. It was his first commissioned artwork on Nifty Gateway, the NFT marketplace backed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss.[12]

2021

In January 2021, Fewocious' "Growing Up...I'm Scared" drop on Nifty Gateway earned him $370,000.[12]

Fewocious x Two Feet

In February, four collaborative NFTs launched by musician Two Feet and Fewocious have generated more than $1 million in Nifty Gateway’s largest auction of 2021 at the time. The auctions were organized by Illumino, an NFT-focused firm. Illumino was put together by the LA-based management agency Keel, crypto VC firm Framework Ventures, and Bruch Projects - the NFT arm of Manna Ventures. The NFTs went live on Valentine's Day, beginning with one-of-a-kind 3D renditions that were sold to the highest bidder. The one-of-a-kind renditions included "Crowded City" and "A Peak In My Head" - works composed collaboratively by Fewocious and Two Feet that sold for $150,000 and $158,888 respectively. Two other collaborative works were made available for open auction at a set price of $999 each, allowing unlimited purchases of the NFTs to be made during the auction. In total, 383 editions of "CryptoCaster" and 324 editions of "City Hand" were minted, generating roughly $382,600 and $323,700 respectively.[16]

Fewocious x RTFKT Studios

On March 6, 2021, his NFT art brought in $3.1 million in seven minutes via his collaboration with the virtual sneaker brand RTFKT Studios that was sold on NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway. Each virtual edition of the Fewocious x RTFKT drop came with a physical pair of shoes. The artist told Content Commerce Insider:[13]

“I had never seen a shoe drop on Nifty, not on the scale that we did it. I’ve seen smaller ones, but I don’t know if any have ever come with physicals like this.”

In March, his NFT "The Everlasting Beautiful", that combined animated art with sound, was sold for $555.000 to the crypto investor and influencer Jason A. Williams on Nifty Gateway.

Fewocious x Christie's Auction

In June 2021, a collection of five Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) by Fewocious sold for $2.16 million in a sale hosted by auction house Christie's. The collection titled "Hello, I’m Victor (FEWOCiOUS) and This Is My Life" consisted of five lots and closed on June 30, 2021. Each lot represented a different year in the artist's life, from age 14 to 18. “Year 1, Age 14 - It Hurts to Hide” tackles the artist's formative year as an artist as they began to question their gender identity. “Year 2, Age 15 - My Mama’s Dream" tackles the struggle to become one's self in spite of parental wishes. “Year 3, Age 16 - When a Child Feels Lost” represents the year Fewocious realized he needed art as an escape. “Year 4, Age 17 - His Name is Victor” marks the year he started minting NFTs, and “Year 5, Age 18 - I Taught Myself How to Fly" stands as the year he took off flying as an independent. The collection consisted of digital NFT videos paired with physical paintings.[4][17][18]

Aside from being the youngest artist ever to be featured by Christie's, Fewocious became the first artist to crash their site - when the sale first went live on June 23, Christie's site collapsed as it was inundated with traffic potential buyers. Rescheduled for two days later, the auction went live on June 30, receiving bids from over 20 collectors. Buyers had the option of paying in Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC). Shortly after the sale closed, Fewocious tweeted, "at a loss for words right now. thank you so much to everyone for making me feel so loved, believing in my art and believing in me, it means the world."[14]

Upon request, Fewocious will deliver the physical painting to the collector in a custom suitcase, Christie's said in a statement, “an ode to how he transported his earliest drawings and paintings when leaving behind his past in pursuit of a brighter future.”[15]
