Tristan Eaton has teamed up with CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) to release an NFT to help with the refugee crisis in Ukraine.
Eaton is most known for his toy creations and street art murals, but he is also a graphic designer and illustrator who has discovered a new way to express himself.
This time, Eaton intends to combine technology and art for a worthy cause.
Eaton has partnered up with CORE to release a rendering of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the slogan Слава Українi (“Glory to Ukraine”) on OpenSea on April 19 for 0.1 ETH in an edition of 500. Collectors who have 10 or more NFTs will receive a limited-edition autographed print.
Next week I’m partnering with @opensea & @CoreResponse to raise money to help with crisis response on the border…stay tuned for more info! April 19th @ 12pm PST!!! pic.twitter.com/W7Hmz5ZATq— Tristan Eaton (@tristaneaton) April 15, 2022
CORE will receive the proceeds from the NFT sale, which will be used to support the organization’s continuing relief activities, which include monetary assistance and emergency relief supplies.
“Like most of the world, I’m horrified to see what’s happening in Ukraine right now. My heart goes out to the thousands of innocent people fleeing their homes because of a senseless war. The way I’ve made change in the world is through my art. While sitting half way across the world I felt helpless but compelled to act and create.” – Tristan Eaton
