Eric Waugh is one of the most recognized and collected fine artists in today's global art market and has sold well over 45,000 original works in the past 30 years. Waugh is 100% self-taught and was a professional graphic illustrator and product designer before becoming a painter in 1988. Waugh's artwork has been acquired by thousands of major corporate and private collectors worldwide. Eric also takes his remarkable creative abilities on-stage, painting LIVE to the beat of the music to such notable celebrities such as, The Jacksons, Cheryl Crow, The Fray, Donna Summer, The Pointer Sisters, Boy George, Tony Bennett and many more. Waugh also created the Guinness Book record for "The World's Largest Painting on Canvas by one artist". The painting entitled "HERO" took over 5 years to complete and was 41,400 square feet.
Waugh is now looking to expand his art into the digital world through NFTs and New World is able to provide a platform and marketplace where Waugh's non-algorithmic collection, Kitty LittrzTM can thrive in an augmented reality ecosystem. "I knew if I was going to get into the NFT space, I wanted to put everything I had into it. I wanted to put my hand on every NFT I create. No Algorithms here. I am creating art like an artist should and New World is the perfect platform to showcase my work," says Waugh.
Each of the 2,022 pieces is made one at a time and each piece includes an animated digital NFT, a 1 of 1 physical print along with a certificate of authenticity. "We're excited to have Waugh join New World," adds Michael Vasile, COO of New World. "Having an established artist of his calibre will only bring more mainstream adoption of Web3."
The NFT component of the artwork will come with a variety of utility features to enhance the inherent value of both purchasing the NFT but also holding onto and staking the NFT thereby increasing ongoing value through passive rewards. Waugh's Kitty LittrzTM NFT collection is set to be released later this year.
