Stencil Tongue is a collaboration on a new art series available in Quidd that gives users the option to mint digital collectibles as NFTs. This collection continues Szabotage’s creative journey into the metaverse.
This collaboration with Quidd pushes Szabotage’s iconic stencil language firmly into the metaverse while enticing the audience to uncover a unique narrative through the collectible metagame. Szabotage, the first Hong Kong Street artist to mint NFTs, takes a keen interest in words and verbal language, yet tells stories through his signature stencil imagery. Through his symbolic visual poetry, he expresses double meanings, cult language, plays on words, Cockney rhyming slang, popular sayings and polar opposites, offering a new perspective and meaning to the status quo.
The Stencil Tongue collection marks the first time Szabotage, whose NFTs have sold for the equivalent of more than US$10,000 each, will offer digital art accessible to anyone, whether crypto native or not, through Quidd’s marketplace and its ability to let users buy items off-chain and later seamlessly mint them on-chain.
The first two sets in the Stencil Tongue collection invite collectors to unlock randomized combinations of stencils to create their own stories through the artist’s individual stencils, with the order and contents of the draw changing the interpretation and meaning each time. The extremely limited, serialized Print Series of the Stencil Tongue collection digitally delivers Szabotage’s own stylized combination of his unique stencil language. You can view the whole collection below.
This is the only piece in the whole collection the makes use of all twenty stencils! Like an Agatha Christie novel, Miss Trust tells us that you can never trust those all around you with the face surrounded by dangerous things, like the anchor weighing you down, the birds picking at the eyes, the megaphones badmouthing and all the weapons all encased in a facade of butterflies.
