A new David Bowie digital art project endorsed by the late artist’s estate is set to launch next week.

The venture is a partnership between Bowie Domain, NFT Marketplace OpenSea, and Web3 company We Love The Arts by Andrew D. Keller and Joaquin Acrich.

Scheduled to launch on September 13 on OpenSea, Bowie on the Blockchain is being billed as “a one-of-a-kind multiple artist NFT sale” that will bring together the work of nine NFT artists.

Each artist, including Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, created “their own unique takes that pay homage to David Bowie and his influence on their artistic and personal identities,” according to a press release.

Tolokonnikova said in a statement on Bowie on the Blockchain: “David Bowie is for me a platonic ideal of an artist, charismatic, passionate, imaginative, magnetic af, he always puts art x curiosity x subversion over profit, a magician and a muse. I am in awe and the always will be. David Bowie is my father.
