EZ NFT, Digital Artist James Suret Launch Animated Warhol/Marilyn Tributes on MakersPlace

September 28, 2021 GMT

Digital Artist’s 3D Reinterpretations of Warhol’s Sunday B. Morning Prints Evoke Themes of Love and Death

Las Vegas, Sept. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Wee-Cig International Corporation (OTCMarkets: WCIG), a company focused on identifying and growing top tech companies in emerging markets, today announced that its controlled subsidiary dba, “EZ365”, is launching two James Suret pieces for auction on MakersPlace, one of the world’s leading digital art marketplaces. The pieces were developed in collaboration with the company’s EZ NFT division, which provides diverse opportunities to invest in the NFT market. 

The two 1/1 works by UK-based digital artist Suret are being auctioned as part of EZ NFT’s Renaissance 2.0 initiative – offering unique opportunities to invest in iconic physical art pieces and the uniquely commissioned NFTs inspired by them.  The pieces were developed for Renaissance 2.0’s initial launch,  The Marilyn Collection, which brought together five of today’s hottest modern-day artists to create unique NFTs inspired by Andy Warhol’s Sunday B. Morning prints of Marilyn Monroe.

Dark and emotive, Suret’s artwork leverages 3D and 2D techniques to create digital sculptures and illustrations that depict emotionally engaging scenes. His work has been included in books and magazines worldwide as well as his self-published art book  Love, Death & Kisses. More recently, Suret has channeled his talents into the creation of digital art as NFTs – often vividly juxtaposing the themes of love and death.

“I cannot think of anyone who embodies the combined themes of love and death more so than Warhol’s muse, Marilyn Monroe,” said Suret. “Reinterpreting his prints of Marilyn through the Renaissance 2.0 collaboration was an incredible opportunity to pay tribute to one of the most adored film legends of the modern age, the world’s ongoing fascination with her untimely passing and her incredible ability to live on in film, art and popular culture.”

Suret’s  Eternal Marilyn  showcases Monroe in vivid and glamorous gold and black tones – as beautiful and memorable in death as she was in life. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, this NFT will be sold alongside the original Warhol print that served as Suret’s inspiration. In addition, the NFT also comes with a physical Infinite Objects display.

Macabre Marilyn  offers a different take, in the form of an animated 3D Monroe in metallic rose and blue. This piece also comes with an Infinite Objects display.

“Extraordinary and compelling, these animated James Suret works will greatly appeal to today’s digital art enthusiasts,” said Russell Korus, EZ365 Founder and CEO of Wee-Cig. “These uniquely commissioned pieces embody Suret’s incredible talent for emotive 3D design in stunning tributes that are must-have additions to any growing NFT collection. Getting an original Warhol print and NFT display is just icing on the cake.”
