Visual artist Amber Marie and Klepto Bear are ready to take the NFT world by storm through art and nostalgia
With the increase in NFTs this year, many artists are eager to join the latest movement, including visual artist Amber Marie. Amber has used her artistic knowledge to create a project that showcases her gifts and brings nostalgia to the holders. With its NFT, Klepto Bears, it will definitely take the world by storm.
Based in Las Vegas, Amber, like many of her peers in the local body art community, was on the rise when the global pandemic halted her progress. Eager to venture into other forms, she found herself at Graffiti Mansion, where she met Arman Izadi and Danny Lorden, who saw a great artist with the potential to thrive in the world of graffiti. The duo took her under their wings, teaching Amber how to empty spray cans as an art form.
Amber decided to delve into the digital platform with her knowledge of traditional arts, especially the NFT industry. When creating the first collection called Klepto Bear Club, she chose the bear as a line representation of a gift her grandmother gave her when she was five years old. A treasured possession, the teddy bear has become a symbol of the childhood imagination that tells of the bear’s adventures and all that he has been through. Izadi gave her support by donating $ 100,000 to Klepto Bear Loot Boxes to move the project forward and bring her closer to achieving her dream.
The Klepto Bear continues to respect Amber’s style, projecting a wealth of color with fine details like texture and intricate lines inspired by iconic movies, comics and games that bring the imagination to life and provide a feeling of nostalgia. Painted with peaceful backgrounds apt to guide the eyes to character and shapes, two-dimensional Klept bears are reminiscent of the nostalgic child in all of us, representing modern life layered on the treasures of our past.
“Klepto bears are the face you see in a crowd,” Amber described. “A reason to pause and say, ‘I’m sure I’ve seen you somewhere before?’ How many toy boxes, how many teddy bears litter the history of each of us? How many treasures, how many relics, once loved, have gone into the ether?
While the NFT is designed to bring nostalgia, Amber and Klepto Bears are also giving Klepto Bear owners $ 100,000 in prizes from their collection in the NFT Vault. However, the vault will not be opened until the milestones have been reached. Prices include items such as iPhone 13 for Mint # 1000, iPadPro for Mint # 2000, LG TV for Mint # 3000, PlayStation 5 for Mint # 4000, Xbox X for Mint # 5000, Macbook Pro for Mint # 6,000, Versace Robe for Mint # 7,000, LV Backpack for Mint # 8,000, Rolex for Mint # 9000 and Tesla for Mint # 10000. In addition, Amber Marie also promises to complete insane challenges. After reaching project milestones, Amber will take a face pie, cook dinner for the crew, have them decide on a temporary tattoo she will have, eat a Ghost Pepper, have a real Klepto bear on the Vegas Strip. . Hand out QR codes and paint the city streets with Klepto Bear art using the lessons Izadi and Lorden gave him.
