About Fewocious’ Record NFT Sale
On August 19, capital6529 paid a whopping 350 ETH for “The Sailor” NFT by Fewocious.

Its description reads, “i don’t know what’s ahead and i can’t be certain. moving onward and upward, my friend… at least im trying.”
After the sale, 6529 Tweeted, “Bringing a @fewocious into the 6529 family has been a very long time in coming.”

Who is Fewocious?
Victor Langlois, popularly known as Fewocious, is one of the most successful NFT artists in the space. A queer artist, he has been making art since he was 13 and first entered the NFT space in 2020. He was the youngest ever Christie’s artist. In fact, his NFT auction with Christie’s a year ago saw the site crashing!
Notably, his Christie’s auction of “Hello, I’m Victor (FEWOCiOUS) and This Is My Life” fetched $2.1 million. The collection documented the artist’s difficult childhood and his journey as a transgender. Later, he sold a 1/1 NFT and physical artwork at a Sotheby’s auction for $2.8 million.
