He’s one of the most prominent crypto art creators and collectors. Now he has now won over even more fans with a decision that will empower others to follow in his footsteps. Simply put, Oficinas TK has announced a chunk of earnings from the sale of ‘Bad Flavour’ will be donated.
The rare X-COPY original work was bought by another collector, The Architech, for 515 ETH (around $1.83 million). The majority of that fee will now be given away to artists Oficinas TK represents on his TCBA Collection. It’s a philanthropic move that you can’t help but admire.
Why did Oficinas TK Donate From His Sale?
Ultimately speaking, as more and more people turn their attention to producing crypto art the need to support up-and-coming artists is only going to increase. Just look at the physical art world, where the number of practitioners far outweighs revenue streams.
“I had to sacrifice one piece that would generate a meaningful amount of ETH to distribute between the artists… but many of the artists I chose for the collection are ‘underdogs’ and the general audience is yet to recognize their greatness,” TK told NFT Plazas.
Making matters even more impressive, TK approached X-COPY before making the sale. This is because he wanted the original artist’s approval. The sign of someone with a strict moral code who wants to give back in a legitimate way, no doubt.
Who Is X-COPY?
X-COPY is one of the original crypto artists, and was on the scene from the very beginning, with a SuperRare presence when the platform first launched. Recently, we’ve been learning a lot about other, newer names in crypto art. These include African practitioner Osinachi, and comic book ace Jose Delbo. Meanwhile, the Untamed Elephants NFT collection is currently on the hunt for a new artist to help add female editions.
