Blondie and crypto art pioneer duo Hackatao announce their collaboration and the release of the first in a series of animated digital artwork, “Hack the Borders,” on August 6th at 6:30 pm ET – click here for a preview teaser. This unique artistic partnership connects the two very different art scenes from which their creators have hailed – it is a present day manifestation of the punk rock movement, fittingly in the form of crypto art.
Released through the digital art online auction platform Nifty Gateway “Hack the Borders” nods to one of the greatest art pioneers of all time, Andy Warhol. Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry and her friend Warhol created an everlasting cultural moment with the Commodore Amiga in 1985, as Debbie became the subject of his very first digital portrait, an image that is just as significant today as it was then. 36 years later, Hackatao and Blondie have joined forces to create their own one-of-a-kind artwork, which will drop on what would be Warhol’s 93rd birthday on August 6th; coincidentally S from Hackatao’s day of birth as well.
The NFT will be released on August 6, 2021. Visit Nifty Gateway’s website for updates and buying information. Nifty Gateway is committed to being a carbon negative platform; click here for more information on how they are accomplishing this.
