This week, Sun Mu will release a selection of NFTs! According to his official website, the artist will launch ten NFTs on May 29th via OpenSea. The project will be centered on his existing artworks and painting, as well as installation pieces. In collaboration with motion graphic designers and blockchain planners, he has recreated his NFT art.
NFT artist Sun Mu escaped North Korea
Sun Mu majored in art in North Korea and worked as a propaganda artist. In the late 90s, he defected via China, Laos and Thailand before settling in South Korea. He has been a full-time artist since he graduated from a highly regarded South Korean fine arts school. The artist from North Korea has released an amazing NFT collection.
His art reflects his upbringing and is reminiscent of North Korea’s socialist propaganda art with a pop art twist. Sun Mu’s art expresses a strong critique of the North Korean government and uses humor and wit to highlight this.
Some of the works will be auctioned, and others as multi-editions at a single price. They are on sale to the public until June 28th.
North Korean hackers linked to Axie Infinity robbery
The North Korean government is very aware of NFTs, and in fact, the FBI believes they are behind the $625 million Sky Mavis, Axie Infinity hack. In a statement, the FBI said, “Through our investigations, we confirmed Lazarus Group and APT38, cyber actors associated with [North Korea], are responsible for the theft.”
However, the blockchain is permanent, and Sun Mu’s images for his NFT collection will show this period of North Korea forever on the blockchain.
