Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch painter who committed suicide was among the greatest artists ever. Let’s say he had access to NFTs.
He was not recognized until two years before his tragic death, indicating the very unjust nature of the art market that was filled with dogmatic critics.
Art dealers and collectors also must be blamed for Van Gogh’s death. Van Gogh himself was suffering from multiple mental disorders and this ignorance exacerbated his situation.
What if he had appropriate tools to circumvent those critics, sell his artworks and receive the tribute he deserved.
Unfortunately, NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) were not invented during Van Gogh’s lifetime.
Van Gogh could easily mint an NFT on the blockchain, representing the starry night , the potato eaters or bedroom in Arles.
And then he was able to release his NFT on an online marketplace. Guess how many ordinary people would buy the NFT? I think hundreds of thousands of people across the world became holders of Van Gogh’s NFT.
By using NFT tokens, Dutch painter could: eliminate art dealers , create various markets for his works and receive royalties forever.
He was born too soon, you know and we cannot take him back to life to show him, more and more NFTs are created from fractions of his artworks and each fraction is purchased at huge prices.
RIP dear Vincent …
