Artist Matt Gondek is set to launch NFT versions of custom-painted baseball bats in the collection titled ‘Fight Club’. Gondek is a rebellious and destructive artist who once melted Homer Simpson. The collection pre-sale for Fight Club goes live on August 18th, officially launching in September.
The ‘Fight Club’ Collection
The ‘Fight Club’ collection by Matt Gondek is of NFT versions of baseball bats. They are being used as a metaphor for the deconstruction, bright colors, and punk rock elements. These are elements that are prevalent in Gondek’s work until now.
The NFT is a photograph of the physical bat, which you can also receive. Each physical bat is hand-carved with spikes installed, paint applied, and grip tape wrapped by hand. They are different, with their uniqueness coming both from the organic nature of their creation and the deliberately designed color and pattern variations.
Each Fight Club NFT can be burned for physical correlation, or the owner can retain the NFT and instead receive a print that is hand-embellished and signed by Matt Gondek. Physical bats will arrive signed and numbered, and the final number of remaining physical bats will be determined by how many NFTs are burned.
A series of events around the drop apply, which you can see on the MakersPlace marketplace where the NFTs will be launched.
