A watercolor drawing of Melania Trump’s eyes – “Melania’s Vision” – will be auctioned as an NFT before December 31.
In her first public initiative since leaving the White House almost a year ago, former first lady Melania Trump is announcing the launch of her own NFT platform and the drop of her first digital collectible – a watercolor drawing of her eyes, called “Melania#s Vision.”
According to Mrs. Trump, her NFT platform aims to combine her passion for art and raising funds to help “our Nation’s children fulfill their own unique American Dream.”
However, the exact proportion of the profits to be allocated to her Be Best initiative has not been specified. “I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative,” Mrs. Trump said in a statement.
Part of the description of the NFT drop reads: “Melania Trump’s personal journey has been enlightening; from Slovenia through Europe and into the United States of America — including as First Lady. The beauty and hardships of individuals, majestic landscapes, and profound architecture have entered her lens and remain in her heart.”
French artist Marc-Antoine Coulon curated the limited-edition watercolor artwork, and it’s now available for 1 Solana (the equivalent of about $150), together with a voice recording in which Mrs. Trump states her vision to “look forward with inspiration, strength, and courage.”
Bids for the NFT will be open until December 31.
Her platform will release new NFTs in regular intervals on her website, MelaniaTrump.com.
Excited for this new venture, which combines my passion for art and commitment to helping our Nation’s children fulfill their own unique American Dream. #MelaniaNFT https://t.co/XJN18tMllg pic.twitter.com/wMpmDDsQdp
