Tristan Eaton recently entered the NFT space with a series of works titled EMMA. The acclaimed SoCal-based artist is back with a follow-up, aptly called the Generative Electronic Museum of Metaverse Art (G.E.M.M.A).
G.E.M.M.A mixes Eaton’s hypnotic art with collaborative software to produce a randomly created retrospective of the past two decades of his work. Starting on January 12, 5000 unique pieces, each priced at 0.1 ETH, will be made available. Similar to past work, which has injected humor in TrustoCorp fashion, Eaton created fake cereal boxes, each of which held a G.E.M.M.A. NFT for the lucky finder. The boxes were planted at grocery stores across five major cities over the past few weeks, leading to a creative approach to bridging the gap between reality and the metaverse.
In a statement, Eaton noted:
“For every painting I make, I normally start with the simple portrait. I then assemble a giant pile of visuals into layered, storytelling collages. From this stage, the painting can go in a million different directions. In real life, I will only see one of these many possibilities realized into a final work of art. The result is the equivalent of a painted puzzle, with each image, color and collage element doing it’s work to create a unique, one of a kind composition. With G.E.M.M.A., I can now see what happens when those thousands of other possibilities are realized. It’s like witnessing a multiverse for paintings. This project will live on for a long time with many surprises and bonuses for those who join the Generative Electronic Museum of Metaverse Art!”

Additionally, there will be four quarterly events enabling holders to burn their G.E.M.M.A. NFT in exchange for a 24” x 24” signed, one-of-a-kind giclee art print of their image, creating a deflationary supply in the digital collection. Check out the link here to inquire more.
