Troy Cassar-Daley has released a collection of 8 paintings titled Back On Country. Whilst an acknowledged art painter, this is Cassar-Daley's first NFT release. These paintings are only available as NFTs.
What is an NFT, you ask. Well, it stands for a non-fungible token. NFTs typically contain references to digital files such as photos, videos, and audio, and can be created by anybody. The ownership of an NFT can be transferred by the owner, allowing NFTs to be sold and traded.
Cassar-Daley is a proud Gumbaynggirr/Bundjalung man who comes from a long line of storytellers, and his passion to pen stories about this land and what lies at the heart of it has been a driving force in his career. This is now reflected in his new paintings.
On the NFT drop, Cassar-Daley says, “I’m thrilled to be working with Serenade and ArtizanX on my release of my Back On Country painting series. These paintings have been inspired by moments in time, and connection to people and country. Being able to make this series available via NFTs provides another medium to share my art and stories.”
Max Shand, founder and CEO of Serenade, adds, “It’s an incredibly proud moment for Serenade to be working with an Australian great on this continuation of Gumbaynggirr/Bundjalung storytelling. At Serenade, we believe in bringing fans closer to their favourite artists, and what better to achieve this than sentimental, nostalgic storytelling, presented through unique and beautiful artworks.”
