Rima Kallingal was also in news because of her NFT
Rima Kallingal was also in news because of her NFT artwork name “The Insurgent Bloom”. Non-Fungible Tokens or NFTs have become popular especially among digital creators. The one-of-its-kind cryptocurrency asset is being increasingly used by artists since it is non-fungible and irreplaceable by another identical item. The latest artist to delve into the NFT market is Malayalam actor Rima Kallingal. She recently launched her genesis NFT project with a digital artwork in the ethereum based NFT Marketplace, Foundation.
The auction for the artwork commenced on October 17 and ended on October 18. The highest bid was offered by @barthazian, who bought the artwork for 2.75 ether, which is worth $10,263.03 (Rs 7.73 lakh).
Rima shares, “During COVID-19, when we had a lot of time to understand what is happening in this parallel digital universe, there was this whole cryptocurrency world that opened up. Although it sounds confusing in the beginning because of the jargons, I’ve been looking at the investments and came across NFTs. From early YouTube videos to the first tweet, it opens up many possibilities for artists. I am constantly looking for new media to explore; so I jumped right at it.”
Drawing parallels to OTT revolutionizing cinema during the pandemic, Rima states that NFTs open a plethora of opportunities for artists. “It is amazing how it is possible to sit in Kerala and sell your artwork to a bidder from the US. The value of artwork also grows exponentially over time and even after the artwork is sold in an auction, artists get a royalty for a lifetime,” she says.
Rima states that 50% of what the artists make out of NFT will be used to support movies made by women. “I am also looking at reinvesting in the NFT community and buying art made by women there as well,” says Rima.
Social media users and digital artists familiar with the world of NFTs applauded Rima’s efforts. Politician Shashi Tharoor also heaped praises for her initiative. “Remarkable initiative by @rimarajan (the Malayalam star Rima Kallingal) to digitise her first NFT and a stunning one it is too! Way to go Rima!”
