Zlatan Ibrahimovic dominates against defenders on the football pitch and now he is moving to conquering the virtual world as he drops his second NFT collection.
The 40-year-old veteran will be releasing his second NFT collection: The Laws of Adrenaline this Thursday, May 12 at 6:00 PM CET exclusively on MakersPlace, the premier marketplace for rare and authentic digital artworks.
Inspired by his autobiography, Adrenaline: My Untold Stories, the collection features artwork by top Italian artists Davide Petraroli, Esklator, and Giovanni Motta. The collection includes both animated and still images, and any collector who buys at least one open edition in each of the three Zlatan Ibrahimović NFT drops will receive a unique gift.
A triptych of artists and their works is set to illuminate the international marketplace specializing in NFT, which accepts both traditional payments (credit cards) and cryptocurrencies. Davide Petraroli with his superb digital painting "Project Zeus-Zlatan" condenses all the sensitivity and determination of the Swedish phenomenon into a refined compendium of virtual brushstrokes; the singer Esklator, fresh from his success at the last Sanremo, with an intense chromatic score called together in the work "Nel pallone", a crucible of restlessness and digitised desire; the virtuoso, and by now master of the NFT field, Giovanni Motta: "An Untold Story: Go Ramingo" is the video parable of a little Zlatan who delves into the meanders of memory to discover the mystery of life.
The artists through their different styles and backgrounds have created heterogeneous and varied artworks, representing the different facets of the human dimension of an indomitable and mocking champion.
By writing his "Untold Stories" Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to share his life experience. Zlatan is also a passionate art collector and by joining this project he plays an active role in the creation of the first NFT collection taken from a book, thus adding a prestigious artistic touch to better depict his walk of life. Zlatan's personal story speaks about love, happiness and the future and is, therefore, a story that speaks to everyone and belongs to everyone.
The project, created in collaboration with "Corriere della Sera", ArtsLife, Wrong Theory, ArtN and G-Lor, is part of the project launched by "Corriere" last September in the world of digital art.
Craig Palmer, CEO of MakersPlace, said the following about the NFT drop:
“We are excited to continue our partnership with one of the world’s premiere athletes, and now successful art patron, Zlatan Ibrahimović.” said Craig Palmer, CEO of MakersPlace. “March’s drop was not only a sellout, but GionnyScandal’s sale received a winning bid of 20ETH. Ibra’s fans can enjoy new artwork from Giovanni Motta, Eskalator and Davide Petraroli.”
