Life and Death is the first NFT work to be sold for millions of dollars by animator DeeKay Kwon.
CozomoMedici, a popular Twitter account among NFT investors, said that he bought the animation for a million USD or 310 ETH. This is 20% more than the most expensive NFT photo that DeeKay Kwon has ever sold. According to Fortunelast September, American rapper Snoop Dogg announced himself as the owner of the account Cozomo Medici.
“Sometimes a piece of work is born to show you the power of art, to move your heart and move your soul. That’s why I feel it. Life and Death is a typical work of the time”, wrote CozomoMedici and said that offering a price of one million dollars was for the author to not refuse.
DeeKay Kwon’s animation depicts the life cycle in 30 seconds, from the moment a person is born to the moment he dies. “My feelings are mixed, of course, I’m undeniably happy. I’m grateful to people who praise my work even when I’m still doubting myself,” the photo’s author said. Life and Death (life and death) share. However, DeeKay also said that now in the development of NFT, people are too concerned with money instead of art. “That’s not what I want the NFT to be. It always needs to be about art first.”
