The Chi Modu Estate partners with NFT platform LTD.INC to develop a collection of iconic hip-hop musicians’ portraits. Dubbed “The Chi Modu Trinity Collection,” it includes photographs of Nas, Mary J. Blige, and Method Man, depicted by Chi Modu. Each portrait comes in 7 editions.
Additionally to the NFTs, holders will receive NFC-infused physical prints. Printed on museum-grade archival fine art photographic paper, the artworks are also cryptographically signed by The Chi Modu Estate. NFT ownership grants access to exclusive content and the possibility to access the private “Chi Modu NFT holders” community.
The proceeds from primary sales will be used to support young adults and children in the art sphere.
“Chi Modu believed art should be accessible to everyone, and he owned the rights to his work so he could continue to share it with the communities that inspired him and his subjects,”said the Manager of the Chi Modu Estate, Sophia Modu.
Nigeria-born Chi Modu was an iconic photographer that called himself a documentarian photojournalist. Modu specialized in hip-hop photography, and his portfolio includes such renowned artists as Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and Easy E.
The artist has photographed a total of thirty covers for Source Magazine, where he worked as the Director of Photography. Modu’s works are often featured in films, documentaries, and commercials.
“The Chi Modu Trinity” is not the first NFT collection featuring Modu’s works. In 2021, he released several non-fungible token photographs on the NFT marketplace Rarible. Unfortunately, two months later, the photographer passed away.
