Collaborative drops will bring Edwin’s impassioned celebrations of black culture and excellence to a broader global audience
Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Wee-Cig International Corporation (OTCMarkets: WCIG), a company focused on identifying and growing top tech companies in emerging markets, today announced that its controlled subsidiary dba, “EZ365”, has added Nigerian artist Crixtover Edwin to its growing roster of artistic talent. The company’s EZ NFT division, which provides diverse opportunities to invest in the NFT space, will work with Edwin to bring his stunning portraiture to a broader global market of investors and collectors.
The collaboration will bridge the physical and digital art worlds by auctioning Edwin’s physical paintings paired with their one-of-a-kind NFT counterparts. The timing of the first drop will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Based in Lagos, visual artist Edwin’s colour-rich portraits celebrate women of color, black excellence, black culture, and love, with a depth of passion and talent well beyond his 25 years. His near-realistic portraits breathe life and soul into his subjects. When celebrating black pop icons, Edwin’s work creates a conversation where emotional connection and creativity meet cultural identity.
“My goal is to emphasize a spiritual connection and relationship with my subjects. I offer passage into their lives, existence, feelings and aura by portraying their beauty in their natural state; a place where they are being themselves unapologetically,” said Edwin.
Borne of a generation deeply immersed in technology, NFTs were a natural progression for Edwin’s artistic expression and connection with the art world. His recent self-directed foray into the NFT world has yielded incredible results in a short period of time, creating buzz around his talent, style and meaningful portrayal of black excellence, well beyond Nigeria’s borders.
“I’m excited to harness EZ NFT’s infrastructure, network and global reach to enable Crixtover Edwin to build on his momentum and success,” said Russell Korus, EZ365 Founder and CEO. “With his incredibly unique, mature and impassioned style, Edwin’s potential is unlimited. I anticipate we’ll be seeing his name among the top-tier artists in both the NFT and traditional art worlds soon. Don’t wait on this one.”
