To help Ukrainian children, the NFT created this one-of-a-kind piece of art.

38 artists came together to create 'Mariupol,' an interactive NFT, to bring attention to the heinous crimes against children in Ukraine.

Mariupol, as an interactive NFT, is a living work of art. It is composed of 13 distinct layers, each of which has between two and four distinct states. The master owner of Mariupol has the option of selecting one of these states as the final look.

Mariupol will be available to 14 collectors in the following configurations: one master NFT and 13 layer NFTs. The auction will be available to the public, and all proceeds will benefit Voices of Children, which provides psychological help to child conflict victims.

The NFT will be featured at the Non-Fungible Conference, which will take held in Lisbon, Portugal on April 4th and 5th. Numerous discussions, seminars, and workshops will be held during the event, which will also feature artworks by more than 100 artists. Mariupol will be featured on a huge screen at the event's center stage during the event.

Contributors and the Source of Inspiration

The Guild, an independent and decentralized artist-led group, oversaw the creation of the artwork. Along with members of The Guild, a contributing artist group included representatives from the Museum of Crypto Art and the Non-Fungible Conference. With its dynamic NFT technology, Async Art also contributed to the creation of Mariupol.

According to the artists, a significant inspiration was Picasso's Guernica, in which he conveyed the horrors of the 1937 bombardment of Guernica city. Mariupol similarly tries to portray the brutality of battle as a modern reworking of Guernica. Each contributing artist illustrated their perceptions of the war, in the hope that it serves as a lesson to avoid repeating history.

Founder of Non-Fungible Conference, John Karp, commented on the purpose of Mariupol and said:

“Like everyone on this continent, and in this world, I am horrified by the images we are getting from Ukraine of innocent civilians being bombed once again. The horror, disgust, and pain forces people to act.”

He further elaborated:

“It makes bystanders want to do something. I hope this artwork can be a testament to the power of community and collaboration and proof that, while there is still too much evil and suffering in this world, there is plenty of good left.”
