ArtMonkees is the first of two planned collections. This first collection is designed by recognized artist Andre
Holzmeister. The second collection will be a collaboration of artists from around the world.
ArtMonkees team drew inspiration from Dunny from Kidrobot and other toy arts to make the collection. Find all the info here.
Set in the year 2322 the collection depicts an important scene; Earth is a human-free planet. The humans left
when the environment no longer seemed survivable and sought refuge in space stations orbiting Jupiter’s moons. Their absence caused the Earth to naturally regenerate itself, reversing the effects of human
destruction and allowing life to thrive once more. One such life form is the ArtMonkees; a unique species of
ape intent on not replicating human mistakes.
To start, the limit of the collection will be decided by the community; only 5000 ArtMonkees will be available to
mint, a number that is both achievable and exclusive. However, once ArtMonkees are available to mint, people
will have only 1 week to grab one. Any left after this point will be ‘burned’ and removed from circulation,
benefiting all ArtMonkees holders by decreasing supply. Burn date: Jan. 30, 8 PM UTC.
The price point is appealing, with a price of 0.3 SOL. The ArtMonkees team saw that other projects are flawed
in their thinking, by charging their members incredible amounts of money just to make the founders rich. We
want to make our ArtMonkees accessible to anyone. The team is also actively helping people who want to
have their first NFT experience and don’t know where to start.
Even more, utility can be found after mint, with ArtMonkees holders having access to the ‘MonkeeVerse’ which
acts as a communal virtual space for ArtMonkees holders. The MonkeeVerse will host puzzles and contest for
holders to have fun. There will also be an AR Instagram feature to display the collection. ArtMonkees holders
don’t have to worry about the collection going dry either, as 2.25% of all secondary sales will be pumped back
into the collection in the form of marketing, always keeping the collection in the eyes of the public.
