title. Budgie

Year: 2020

Collection: Trauma

Acrylic, decoupage, ballpoint pen, marker

50x70cm

When I was about 7 years old, my grandmother crushed my budgie with her indoor clogs right in front of my eyes.🦜

An accident for sure, but still traumatic, and my first encounter with Death. ☠️

 

“Budgie” is the first painting in my new collection dealing with the crossroads between Absurdism and Trauma.

If you are interested in acquiring this piece, I’m happy to supply additional pics, and answer any questions about my process etc.

To purchase the original one-of-a-kind canvas, please see my Shop!

This is also available as a 1/1 edition NFT, here.

If the canvas gets sold first I will burn the NFT file and remove from the blockchain.

However, if the NFT sells first I'll either torch the original canvas (I will send the buyer a video of it); or just remove the canvas from the market and keep it for myself and vow to never make it available for sale. If you buy the NFT the choice is yours!

A third option - incase you'd want both the canvas and the NFT - is: I'll ship you the canvas, remove the NFT from the blockchain, and then you, as the only owner of the original, would be able and allowed to mint your own NFT of it.

So many options lol..
