George Boya is an analogue collage artist making a transition to digital space. Using his 15 year body of work as material and new digital tools he creates new narratives and animations as a bridge from the art of the past to the art of the future. He is inspired by science fiction narratives, fascinated with the technological inventions and dreams of future worlds.
These tokens feature some pretty awesome animation, so to fully appreciate them you’ll need to click through the images and visit them on SuperRare or MakersPlace.
Knight of the Cloudy Skies
The First of the enigmatic Astral Knights is the oldest and wisest of the nine heroes. Though few in number, they are an ancient clan, and their mode of war blends spirituality with a unique mastery of technology. KCS is a deadly fighter, able to harness the power of the wind to bring swift and silent blows to any who dare oppose her.
This token was minted on
August 24th, 2020. Thoth the Keeper of Secrets
The second collage/animation of the Kingdom series and one of my favorite artworks. The scribe of Gods is a curious scholar and responsible for recording the lives of people from birth to death. The original handcut artwork was created back in 2006 and now is given a new life through frame animation.
George Boya gave me a gif that shows the full painting that this token, minted on
August 8th, 2020, is derived from.
Spice Must Flow
This token, which is an homage to Dune, was
minted on September 10th, 2020. Glorious Ammon
Glorious Ammon is the first artwork of the collage/animation series A Kingdom in Pieces. Created in analogue form in 2006 and digitally animated in 2020. Ammon is opening a dialogue about the similarities of Christian religion with the ancient Egyptian one. Sometimes Zeus and others God Almighty but always a strong father figure adapting through history and always remaining the same.
