NFT collectable platform VeVe have today announced they will be releasing official Medicom Banksy NFTs.

VeVe had told their community to expect an artist partnership announcement of huge magnitude this week, but nobody was expecting the legendary graffiti street artist Banksy.

The news was played on a private screen at this years LA Design Convention and can be seen on the tweet below.

VeVe CEO Dan Crothers was due to give a presentation on an updated VeVe metaverse style showroom and commented that “Banksy will be hard to top” confirming the footage is real and they really have secured a partnership with the biggest independent artist in the world.

The cerebrum behind the VeVe app is Alfred Kahn- licensing hall of famer, responsible for more than $25 Billion in retail revenue including Pokemon. An expert in licensing, branding, digital media and marketing, Alfred plays an integral role in securing licenses for the VeVe platform, and this has included Disney, DC and now Banksy.

Although the input from Bansky is still unknown, history tells us this will won’t be a normal NFT Artwork project and to expect the unexpected. We already have clues in the video with wording such as ‘NFTs all gone’, ‘made by the fans’ and ‘will you be ready?’. The video shows this will also be a partnership with Medicom Toys, who create real life Banksy statues.

Banksy, from Bristol, England is an anonymous British graffiti artist known for his antiauthoritarian art, often created in public places. His identity remains unconfirmed and the subject of speculation. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have appeared on streets, walls and bridges throughout the world.

The VeVe community were delighted with the announcement.

MoonBoi Sam Ellis took to Twitter to write “Did #veve just announce Banksy?!? Mind blowing!”

Collector YoJoe said, I am in shock right. VeVe actually got the man, the myth and the legend: Banksy. I am in awe of this companies ability to land IP.”

We look forward to seeing this story unfold and learn more about Banksy’s involvement and what is planned. It is worth noting that Banksy has often criticised large IPs such as Disney with works like ‘Dismal Land’, and he might not be coming in peace! Either way, WE CAN’T WAIT!

At time of writing you can download VeVe from the App/Playstore and they have also recently released a web app version of their platform here.
