Even though previously reticent in an NFT collection that never came to fruition, illustrated and A-list actor who left Hollywood Jim Carrey has finally launched its first NFT. Dubbed ‘Sunshower’, the 1/1 asset is currently available for auction on SuperRare, and is on offer for 46.6 ETH (or roughly $56,900).
Sunshower is produced in collaboration with another Hollywood figure david bushel, who is famous for producing movies like Deception (2008) and Dallas Buyers Club (2013). He is based on Carrey’s physical painting of the same name and is accompanied by an original voiceover from the man himself.
Created directly from tubes of acrylic paint, the artwork’s aesthetic depicts Carrey’s face within a distorted yet vibrant compilation of colors and large blue raindrops. The image is dynamic, with its final form surfacing a few seconds after a black-and-white title screen introduces the artwork.
The 1/1 NFT auction ends at 8pm BST on June 14and a portion of its final price will be donated to Feeding America, a network of nonprofit food banks.
Speaking about his NFT effort, and after leaving the ‘spineless’ Web2-centric ecosystem that is modern Hollywood, Carrey had this to say: “I had just begun to experiment with bringing my art to life through simple animations. When the NFT world opened up. For me, there could never be enough new places to create.”
