If you think Emmanuel Shiu’s artwork looks like something you would see in a movie, you’re right! He’s done work for some of the biggest recent movies, and now he’s expressing himself through tokens he’s minting on the Ethereum blockchain.
Some of Emmanuel Shiu’s tokens feature moving and audio elements, so to fully appreciate this artist’s work, you’ll need to click through the images in this article and visit these pieces on SuperRare.
Into the City
This token which was minted on March 9th, 2021 has a futuristic dystopian vibe, and has some big name brands like HP, Playstation, and Lexus in the advertisements we can see over this city bustling with activity.
The Ethereum Queen
Digital art collectors who appreciate Emmanuel Shiu’s works have likely already seen his genesis token, minted February 23rd 2021, featuring the Ethereum Queen herself, in all her glory and confidence, posing in front of a giant physical Ether coin. The fact that this piece is Emmanuel Shiu’s genesis piece and features a representation of the blockchain that it’s been minted on is already exciting, but when you couple that with the fact that the image is just hella cool, you get something that may attract significant secondary market attention, if it ever does become available.
The futuristic starship looks like it has all the technology that decades ago we were told we would already have by the time this token was minted on minted on February 25th, 2021.
A giant physical Ethereum symbol spins calmly in this token minted on March 5th, 2021, while this futuristic city looks highly technologically advanced, we don’t get a dystopian vibe like in Into the City, and, while this is just speculation, it seems like it’s possible for humanity to benefit greatly from a city like this existing, albeit only in the Ethereum blockchain.. for now.
