Fantico, a digital licensed collectibles platform, focusses on curating assets in the fields of cinema, sports, art, music and other valuable collectibles. The platform has now introduced digital collectibles of renowned musicians such as Pratichee Mohapatra & Alisha Chinai.
Music is more of an emotion. It’s a feeling that gets you in the grove as soon as you hit play. Be it any mood or blues it drives everything away and lifts your spirits. Even when you are watching a movie or a series, it seems incomplete without songs which fit situations and background scores which make the experience even more intense. Without music there would be a complete void within us. This is the magic that musicians have brought to our world. And now, there is a chance to connect with these musicians directly and to own a precious piece of their art through digital collectibles.
Abhayanand Singh, Group CEO and Co-Founder of Vistas Media Capital said “Fantico provides a platform to own rare artifacts and collectibles for music fanatics. Musicians are essential to the world of Bollywood and hence we introduced this curated selection to open a universe for fans.”
These collectibles are not only digital but are also backed by original physical assets as showcased on the platform. Below are the details of the items:
FOOT FETISH BY PRATICHEE MOHAPATRA
“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art” – Leonardo Da Vinci. This series is Pratichee’s expression coming to life in primary colours using an ink pen and acrylic paints. The art doesn’t aim to represent the outward appearance as much as what it signifies inwards and has given Pratichee positive energy and calmed her down.
After winning India’s first-ever reality show “Popstars”- a nationwide talent hunt, Pratichee Mohapatra became part of the immensely successful pop band “VIVA”. A lesser-known fact about her is that writing and painting are some of her hidden talents and one can see her work on her personal social media page. Pratichee believes creativity cannot be limited to one art form and wants to expand and express herself in different mediums.
GAIA; MOTHER AND CHILD; YELLOW DREAM BY SUCHITRA KRISHNAMOORTHI
Suchitra Krishnamoorthi is a noted Indian actress, writer, painter and singer having trained in India, London and New York. She has exhibited her paintings in galleries across India and around the globe.
Falling in the boundaries of representative arts and abstraction, Suchitra’s art is an expression of her feelings reflecting faith, love, fervour, devotion, zeal, rebirth, eroticism, freedom, flora, and fauna.
