Ringo Starr’s Original NFTs In ‘Creative Mind Of A Beatle’ Online Auction

Ringo Starr’s digital artwork will be sold off in an online auction next month under the title The Ringo Starr NFT Collection — The Creative Mind of a Beatle. It is a member of the group’s first NFT collection.

Starr’s animated paintings will feature on the nonfungible tokens, which will be auctioned off to fans on June 13 at Julien’s Auctions. A “custom-made drum composition recorded and played” by the well-known musician will also be on offer.

Each buyer will also get a signed 25″ x 25″ canvas print by Starr, as well as access to join him on an exclusive virtual tour of his digital gallery experience and “virtual hang,” RingoLand, by private invitation following the auction. Spatial.io built this for online, VR, or mobile use.

The pieces include his unique animated artwork, and the drum composition is Ringo playing to the beat of each NFT’s moving graphics. They have a particular audio/visual theme of Ringo’s time with The Beatles.

In a statement, Ringo says:

“I only ever wanted to be a drummer yet you never know where a new idea or path will lead you. This new technology is so far out it’s inspired me and I loved creating these NFTs combining my art and my music. Who’d have thought I would be spreading Peace and Love in the MetaVerse.”

The Julien’s Auctions listing notes:

“Starr’s visionary artistic and musical styles take center stage in these striking digital paintings, adding the title of NFT original artist to the beloved pop culture icon’s ever-growing, multi-hyphenate body of work.”

The auction will feature a total of 20 NFTS in four different sets of works. Proceeds will benefit the artist’s Lotus Foundation charity, which assists families suffering financial difficulties, supports initiatives devoted to the social welfare and health of people in various places, and provides grants to help youngsters complete their education.
