The Art of Giving is a special collection that aims to raise aid for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (RCRC).

Nft Collection Visual 1200x728 1

The Art of Giving is a special collection that aims to raise aid for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (RCRC). This exclusive collection features artworks by Crypto.com and 33 artists, where 100% of the primary sale proceeds from the drop will be transferred to the RCRC in support of the victims of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. 

In these perilous times, it comes as no surprise that several of the artists have chosen to convey  messages of love, hope, and peace in the art pieces they have gifted for this cause. 

Psychedelic artist Ugonzo Art created customised PsychoMolly #Peace and PsychoKitty #Peace specially for this collection, and both are bearing the words on their outfits. Before experimenting with NFTs, Ugonzo earned a reputation for his surreal murals and trippy pop culture portraits – garnering a 100,000-plus social media after gaining celebrity attention.

The same message is also sent by the AlphaPeace collectible, a sentient robot designed by accomplished 3D artist Travis Ragsdale who has been making 3D art and animation for nearly 15 years. “The primary inspiration behind this AlphaBot was peace and unity. We are all one human species and we should stick together to help lift others up. We believe that if we are in a position to help people in need, then we should do so, to the best of our ability. Our heart goes out to all of those affected by this, and we are hopeful that if we all work together, we can make a real difference in the lives of all the people in need,” the artist shared.

Ali Jardine, a pioneer of iPhone art who gifted the hope+feather art piece shared that “Peace, freedom, hope, and love inspired this piece.” Other art pieces in the collection that reflect the same theme of peace and love include the Serenity Lion by Crypto.com, Red Sun by Fran Rodriguez, and A Ray of Sunshine by Rank SSS.

We spoke with some of the artists about their work and there is a common motif–using the power of art to spread positivity while supporting those in need.

“With the rising tide of destruction sweeping the world, we tend to feel powerless. And this feeling becomes overwhelming if we don’t see the opposite happening: a creative wave that transforms the world. We, creative people, can collaborate for balance and hope, and it is our duty to continue creating and seeking to bring some kind of light that opposes the chaos of our days.”

Igor Martins, creator of Bonds NFT

“Helping people can be done in multiple ways and I’m convinced art is one of them. Through this drop, I wanted to give my support alongside other great artists with one of my art pieces.” 

Senbenito, creator of Retro Gaming NFT

“I am trying to do something, in my small way, about this heartbreaking situation. In my day-to-day life I am a healthcare professional and I know what it is like to suffer for someone you love or something you care about. As in my work I am making myself available for refugees who have come to my city, having the opportunity to be able to do something as an artist as well seems natural.”

Neontenic, creator of Neon Prince NFT

“Innocent people are needlessly suffering and if there’s any way to help, we have to try. It’s more than money, it’s support and ultimately love, and these times highlight our need to overflow with love when there’s clearly overflowings of the opposite spilling through the streets of homes just like the ones we live in.”

Koanye, creator of HALO NFT
