Otha Davis III, known as Vakseen, is coming to MakersPlace this week with a special NFT series that is being billed as “Legends Only. Los Angeles”.
The series will feature eight of Vakseen’s powerful paintings. The artworks honor the Los Angeles scene and celebrate the cultural icons of Los Angeles and the importance and worldwide influence of Los Angeles pop culture. Each piece depicts a different influential L.A. icon, from the 1980s to the late 1990s.
Vakseen is a self-taught museum exhibit artist and a multi-platinum music executive, producer and songwriter. Not only did he produce hit records, but he also carved out a significant and prestigious space for himself in the art world with his vaunted pop style.
His art has been exhibited by Spectrum Miami/Art Basel, Adidas, Vans, BBC World News, HBO’s Insecure, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, City of Los Angeles, 825 Gallery, Abend Gallery, Baton Rouge Gallery, and Soho House in London, just to name a few.
