The Artist

Another commissioned piece was also made for the fine art dealership, Cook and Becker. This was one was based on the video game Dark Souls (also licensed) and is called “Artorias of the Abyss”.

The Work

The details on all his pieces are borderline scary!

Secondly the theme behind all his pieces on the surface is fantasy mixed with darkness and possibly death but it goes deeper than that. You can feel the “unholy” vibe emitting from his pieces. His pieces remind me of a “dark” religion or cult in a fantasy world or universe. Statues and sculptures that could easily be found in chapels or “unholy” grounds.

Thirdly he is trying to express destruction through creation, hidden in the fine details. This can be observed in his NFT genesis piece covered below.

NFT Debut

The genesis piece “The Alchemist” on Super Rare
Fun fact, this piece is made out of 700 individual pieces.

Nekro has dropped his second ever NFT on Super Rare as well called “Piety” which has already generated some traction, with the highest bid at 4 ETH (at the time of writing this post). Another masterpiece in my opinion.
