KRYPTO KALASH - THE EXCLUSIVE 1 of 1 AK47 NFT
Soldier turned Sculptor; London-based Bran Symondson uses AK47 as his medium, turning arguably the most dangerous weapon in the world into art. Bran sees these weapons as a blank canvas, transforming the weapon from fear and loathing to beauty and intrigue. The inspiration to take the most iconic and devastating weapon in the world and create artworks with them came from Symondson’s tour with the special forces in Afghanistan, where Afghan soldiers and the police would decorate their AK47s with flowers and stickers.
The acclaimed sculptor’s pieces have been bought and collected internationally from the renowned artist Jake Chapman through to Elton John and the Prince of Bahrain. To bring his collection into the digital age Symondson has been working on his new and most exciting creation to date KRYPTO KALASH. This one-off piece will be auctioned as an original artwork, print, and as a digital file, with the NFT certifying authenticity.
Excited by the growing art world NFT trend, digitalising his work and for the first-time using cryptocurrency in art, KRYPTO KALASH reflects analogue currency merging into a digital formation. Using a deactivated AK47 captured from conflict in Afghanistan, the artist has hand cut the detailing from real American dollar bills and then meticulously infused green money-like cryptocurrency logos such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin masterfully embellishing the rifle.
