For those who follow the career of Marcelo Bonfa closely, it is not news that in addition to being a drummer and composer, is also a talented visual artist. there are times, Bonfá is dedicated to the visual arts and the platform Kickoff Music – specialized in blockchain – presents works with 10 copies for each collection of NFTs.
The fans who follow urban Legion know that some of the covers and inserts of the band's albums were illustrated and created by Bonfá as, for example, ‘Music for Camps’ (1992) and 'Another station' (1997).
About digital arts, he reveals that he has been working with the theme since the end of the 90, when he met the computer 'Amiga', from Commodore brand. “It was a platform that was ahead of Apple and Microsoft. The Commodore already offered 16 millions of colors in the palette; e o PC, didn't even work with four yet. And I started to make some digitization drawings there”, says the artist. Since then, Bonfá follows this revolution and, despite displaying some of his work on his website and Instagram, now was the moment chosen to gather an unprecedented series around its first exhibition.
Bonfá took care of its own curatorship and selected 12 illustrations and an autographed poster where each item is loaded with its respective certificate of authenticity on the blockchain. The technique used to make these images is hybrid. Sometimes it has its origins on paper and then the artist photographs and starts a process that goes through his favorite digital programs., like Procreate inside iPad Pro. “Until I reach a result that pleases me, there are many passes through my gadgets”, highlights.
When purchasing an NFT, the buyer will also take the original file of the work in high resolution and/or the screen already printed, framed in material chosen and signed by the artist himself. Marcelo chose to present them in the physical world with methacrylate printing (40 x 70 cm), a form of finishing where an image is embedded between two acrylic plates and that simulates the light of the gadgets where the images were created. This process does not require a frame., carrying only one profile on the back, so ready to hang on the wall.
