Non-fungible token (NFT), collections have been launched by many famous people, but some compilations of NFT have included luminaries who died. NFT collections include legends such as Jerry Garcia and Kurt Cobain, Muhammad Ali (Muhammad Ali), Tupac, Elvis, and many more. This Saturday, Ethernity and Bruce Lee’s family will be dropping the renowned martial artist’s first NFT collection dubbed “The Formless Form.”
‘Be Like Water Making Its Way Through Cracks’
Bruce Lee, a popular American and Hong Kong martial artist, instructor of martial arts, filmmaker star and philosopher is very well-known in pop culture. Lee is known worldwide for his style of martial arts and his roles in many feature-length films about martial art that were made during the early 1970s.
On January 8, 2022, the Bruce Lee Family Company and the NFT protocol Ethernity, will be dropping Lee’s first NFT collection. Lee’s NFT compilation aims to “commemorate the life and legacy of the martial arts pioneer, philosopher, and global action film star,” Ethernity’s press statement explains.
According to the announcement, the NFT collection was “ inspired by Bruce Lee’s philosophy and teachings.” Furthermore, the artwork stems from artists such as Bosslogic, Raf Grassetti, and Anthony Francisco. “My father believed in honest self expression,” Shannon Lee, the chairwoman and CEO of the Bruce Lee Family Company and the One Family Foundation said. Lee’s daughter continued:
We’re honored for the opportunity to collaborate with these extremely talented artists whose artistic expressions will help continue to spread the positive message of Bruce Lee’s philosophy and teachings to the world in an authentic way.
‘Absorb What Is Useful, Discard What Is Not, Add What Is Uniquely Your Own’
Bruce Lee NFTs feature a variety of celebrities and stars who are remembered in non-fungible token artwork. During the first week of May, The Jerry Garcia Foundation, launched the first NFT auction featuring the late Grateful Dead guitarist’s art.
That same week, Ethernity partnered with Muhammad Ali Enterprises (MAE) to launch the first Muhammad Ali NFT collection, and never-before-seen Muhammad Ali artwork transformed into an NFT was auctioned by Sotheby’s at the end of July.
At the end of April 2021, never-before-seen photos of Kurt Cobain’s iconic last photoshoot were converted into an NFT collection. In mid-December, Makersplace revealed the first NFT collection based on Tupac Shakur’s most well-known jewelry pieces.
Ethernity founder and CEO Nick Rose said that Ethernity looks forward to providing Bruce Lee lovers with NFTs. “We thrive off exploring opportunities for newly expanded worlds of important individuals, and an incredibly influential figure like Bruce Lee is a perfect fit for our great ambitions and endeavors,” Rose said.
Ethernity’s executive also added:
We can’t wait to give Bruce Lee’s fans new ways to celebrate his life’s work, towards which our team shares so many fond feelings.
