Jim Carrey has a second NFT masterpiece is now available on SuperRare, raising much buzz in metaverse circles. The prominent actor and celebrity has also committed some of the proceeds to those devastated by natural disasters.
Jim collaborated with his daughter, Jane Carrey, on the multimedia NFT Goon in Moonlight. The digital art, created in partnership with Big Head Club, showcases Jim Carrey’s abilities as a painter, writer, and computer animator. In addition, the NFT has stunningly enigmatic backing vocals from the actor’s daughter. The ‘Goon in the Moonlight’ sculpture is up for auction until Thursday, with a reserve price of $50,000 or 29 to 30 Ethereum.
SuperRare announced the drop via a tweet on Tuesday with John Crain, SuperRare co-founder and CEO, who is beyond excited about Jim Carrey’s second drop on the platform. He went on further regarding Jim Carrey as a visionary artist and performer, saying it is incredible to see the evolution of his artistic career.
The Canadian-born actor is well-known for his roles in comedies such as Dumb and Dumber, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Truman Show. After retiring from the acting and movie industry, given the buzz surrounding NFT art, it was inevitable that the celebrity would enter the NFT art scene.
According to Carrey, Goon in the Moonlight is about lost love. Jim conveyed his heart behind the NFT after minting it on Monday, saying that it symbolizes the emotions of being in the inescapable romance of moonlight, where the Goon is fated to retract from the nostalgia of lost loves and the agony of remorse that can reshape any of us into something horrific in our mind. Jim Carrey’s second non-fungible token appears more vintage than his first.
Jim Carrey is very well-known in the realm of fine art. Over the previous decade, he has shown his work to critical and artistic acclaim. However, lately, he has sparked debate in certain circles for his politically charged paintings and sketches of Trump and his associates. “I’ve been both fortunate and cursed in this life with a strong imagination and a burning desire to share my quirks and inspirations with you,” he tweeted in June. Sunshower is the name of this small mood booster. “I hope this NFT does for you what it did for me.”
The Goon in Moonlight is Carrey’s second digital art release, after Sunshower NFT in June, and was developed in collaboration with filmmaker David Bushell. It is inspired by his picture and boasts a piece that has attracted collectors from many corners of the world. At the auction, the first art NFT received 21 bids and sold for $105,000 to a South Korean animator and director residing in New York. The veteran actor and artist is known for his donations and has engaged in charity work. For his two NFT masterpieces, he made sure that others would also benefit from the success of his NFT.
Feeding America is a nonprofit with over 200 Food Kitchens throughout America, receiving a portion of the revenue from the inaugural NFT sale. And, for this second edition, a portion of the revenues from the digital artwork sales will benefit José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit established to assist feed victims of calamities.
