A new NFT marketplace aiming to bring traditional artists into Neo’s NFT ecosystem is launching on Monday, Feb. 14. The platform will kick off with the sale of a collection by Zhenchen Liu, a renowned artist whose works have been shown in prestigious venues all over the world.
The Mega Oasis marketplace is designed to offer collectors access to unique NFTs made specifically for the platform. It is targeted at both existing NFT collectors as well as art lovers who haven’t yet ventured into the blockchain world.
The first NFT series for sale on Mega Oasis, Meta Panacea, is based on an existing collection of physical art pieces, Panacea, created by Liu.
Liu is a Chinese artist who works in Paris and Shanghai. He has studied at the school of Fine Art in Shanghai, the National Superior school of Arts in Nice, and the Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts in Tourcoing. Liu’s pieces can be found in various museums throughout the world, including Grand Palais, Petit Palais, and Centre Pompidou in Paris, Reina Sofía National Art Museum in Madrid, and the Museum of Natural History in New York.
Additionally, his videos have been screened at festivals such as the Locarno International Film Festival, Oberhausen International Film Festival, Festival de Clermont-Ferrand, among others. Liu’s work predominantly focuses on the postmodern urban experience through moving images and video installations.
