Victor Langlois, who is popularly recognised as FEWOCiOUS started selling his work two years ago. Nevertheless, this week, in a limited 24-hour period, he sold approximately $20 million in NFTs. This is Nifty Gateway’s third highest-ever sale.
A total of 5000 buyers took advantage of the 24-hour period to purchase digital paintings of FEWOCiOUS signature style, which appeared to look like tiny paint blobs of vibrant colors.
Langlois is currently creating a digital universe or metaverse-style world, which is known as FewoWorld. The current highly successful sale of the “Paint Drop” artwork is only the start of great things to follow.
The artist says more details will be released about his metaverse-like world FewoWorld, which consists of little NFT characters called “Fewos”. Langlois states that each of his paint NFT will be associated with a select number of “Paints” that make up FewoWorld. The funds will be used to explore ways Langlois can increase creativity at FewoWorld, such as hiring more team members.
Painting parties will continue to be held by the artist, in which he will offer collectors of his NFTs the opportunity to paint any subject of their choice. FEWOCiOUS “Paint Drop” sale has created a solid foundation to build something better and bigger. So far, Langlois has made sales of approximately $50 million worth of art in the period of a year.
