“Celebrity portraits have the power to mirror and shape our cultural zeitgeist,” said David Christopher Lee. “Selling this work as digital collectibles celebrates the impact of these timeless icons while preserving these moments in pop culture history on the blockchain.”
As a portrait photographer and producer, David has worked with many celebrities and big brands such as Richard Branson, Lady Gaga, Cadillac, Lexus, Qatar Airways, Aman Hotels. David’s work has been published in major magazines such as GQ, Vogue, Instyle, People, Teen, Men’s Health, Departures and many more.
The NFT collection will be linked to unique opportunities for the collector. Digital collectors can purchase a self-portrait by David Christopher Lee that is linked to a photo shoot with the master photographer. Throughout the month of June, four celebrity digital collectibles will be linked to access to four different portrait classes taught by David Christopher Lee.
Collectors of four David Christopher Lee celebrity portraits will also receive an invitation to an exclusive Hollywood celebrity red carpet event through a partnership with Hollywood film and television producer and actress Darcy Donavan. This event is tied to multi-million dollar films produced in conjunction with #CryptoQueen’s own NFT project, StarDawgs. In exchange, collectors who have one of Darcy Donavan’s exclusive “Director” StarDawgs NFTs will receive an hour and a half with David Christopher Lee.
“In both of our respective projects, we offer intrinsically valuable NFTs supported with incredible IRL tools. Through this partnership with Illuminate, we showcase NFTs that open educational, professional and personal doors,” said Darcy Donavan.
Established artists Peter Halasz, Saxon Chang, Sari Esserman and George Mullen will also participate in the Illuminate.art launch and will release several artworks. Klaus Moeller will also provide access to images in his digital archive of iconic celebrity photos.
These portraits kick off the launch of Illuminate.art. Unlike NFT platforms that are like an Ebay or Instacart for artists, Illuminate is an executive talent management service for experienced artists who understand the importance of having a digital presence and virtual community. Illuminate works hand in hand with artists with a range of services including social media creation, PR and gallery placements. Illuminate guarantees that the physical and digital artworks complement each other and build brand value and recognition for the artist.
Illuminate’s software provides a smooth sales experience for the customer. Illuminate is one of the rare NFT platforms that offers customer service while also having a highly accessible platform for new NFT buyers, including a Venly wallet upon registration. To further improve customer satisfaction and reduce a barrier to entry, Illuminate absorbs the cost of gas when minting an NFT for the customer.
Illuminate is a subsidiary of RialtoSOFT, which provides businesses and non-profit organizations with a highly accessible platform to buy, sell and trade NFTs. Understanding the flood of NFTs in the market, RialtoSOFT strives to help individuals and organizations stand out in the NFT market while curating their own collections and maintaining their brand integrity.
