Hong Kong-Based Crypto Billionaire Artist Allan Banford and #legend to Launch NFTs on OpenSea

Crypto billionaire and NFT artist, Allan Banford, joins forces with #legend, Hong Kong’s leading omnichannel pioneer to launch six hybrid NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in celebration of the magazine’s 6th anniversary. The NFTs, which are six unique cover art of the #legend magazine, will be released on OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT platform. This marks the first Hong Kong magazine to tap into the realm of digital art.

Through this NFT series’ bright and contrasting colors, the collection aims to invoke joy and excitement for all during times of escalating tension and uncertainties. The owners of the NFTs will receive a signed copy of the magazine of the corresponding cover art by the artist. Each release reflects the creative, inquisitive, and daring spirit of both the artist and #legend.

As a Hong Kong resident, Allan Banford‘s visionary career extends beyond the realm of fine arts as he was the first to initiate an art crypto sale of blockchain. His painting The Lonely Star sold in 2013 for 25,000 or the equivalent of nearly US$1.1 billion today. Banford‘s vision is to develop the Artiverse, or ‘art metaverse’, which is a virtual art space where artists and creators can showcase their NFTs, live performances, and beyond. The launching of the project is an inaugural step to actualizing his vision.

“The #legend NFT covers are 100% mathematically perfect digital artworks from the art series Digitalism created by an algorithm I’ve developed that decodes characters or number combinations into 20 million-pixel colour sequences depicted on a rectangle or square format,”
Banford explains,

“It’s clear that art has evolved very quickly in the digital era, making this new alternative a new chapter that challenges creativity and motivates investment.”
“We believe this first cover art collection sets a new standard for publishing,”
says Anne Lim, Co-founder and Publisher of #legend magazine.

“We are excited to share #legend’s first-ever NFTs with Allan Banford in our 6th-anniversary issue.”
For the first phase, sales for the six digital art pieces, priced at 1 ETH () per piece, launches on 1st of March, on Opensea. Visit https://bit.ly/AllanBanfordxlegend for a virtual tour. More NFT projects with #legend are coming soon in the next phase.
