Its name may not mean much to you if you are not a fan of pop art. However, Jayet is already part of NFT history, with a first collaboration more than successful in the context of the launch of lucky duckies. The artist has made a name for himself in the very closed circle of art and visual artists. Very well known for his bear, symbol of his works, Jayet has already had the opportunity to carry out collaborations in emblematic places. We can notably cite the esplanade of the MUCEM in Marseille, the intercontinental or even very well-known galleries.
Jayet: from pop art to NFT, the evolution of an original artist
Jayet is a visual artist of the pop art movement, which is gradually evolving towards the NFT world. He arrives with a new collection “ Floating Bears» and a drop of type «Tryptic Numeric Physics“. But then, what is all this?
The triptych actually consists of a variation of the same work on three supports. The first is a sculpture in the physical world. The second is a hologram that features a bear trapped in a physical frame representing a holographic 3D version of the same sculpture. Finally, the third medium is digital and allows you to simply transport the work in your smartphone or tablet.
You now know what the concept ofTryptic Numeric Physics, that Jayet was the first artist in the world to achieve it. It integrates perfectly with that of the NFTs, since collectors will have an NFT which will act as a certificate of authenticity for the sculptures and the version on holographic support. A work that the artist undertook in order to adapt to the evolution of new technologies. The latter came to interfere in the world of art with the recent surge NFT.
The artist has always been fascinated by bears: from a very young age in comforters, in treats, but also in the collective imagination. It is therefore quite naturally that he opted for the bear as the emblem of his art.
Jayet is an international 3.0 artist, specializing in sculpture, NFT design, holograms, paintings, sculptures… Today, he is the first artist to have put this type of triptych on sale.
French plastic designer, his story begins with a bear, an iconic animal rocking the childhood of many children. The Jayet bear represents both gentleness and power. He is unique in the world: biface, wink on the tails side, wide-eyed and smile on the front side, his arms wide open. He is like Janus the “god of transitionswith two heads, 2,000 years old. The difference ? The bear smiles at the future with his wink. And why two sides? The first side represents the bear amazed by the world around him with round eyes, wide open. The second represents that of José Garcia, with his lucky and benevolent wink.
The largest bear in the world is located in Marseille and measures more than 6 meters. With its orange color, it does not go unnoticed if you are passing through the Marseille capital.
From 2022, Jayet will launch a new NFT catalog in partnership with Cointribune, Cointelegraph and Metakira, notably at the famous Peninsula Paris.
An exhibition is also being prepared at the Carreau du Temple from May 2022. The opportunity to reveal a 35-tonne, 5-storey project that he is designing: a huge Rooster exclusively for the Rugby World Cup and the Paris Olympics in 2022.
But, beyond its more traditional creations, Jayet is launching a new NFT collection entitled “Floating Bears ». A very organic movement towards NFTs given the artistic career of Jayet, who emancipated himself late as an artist. In a recent interview, he thus declared that during his studies, he had learned sculpture with a hammer, awl, chisels with points and steps. Today, he uses more modern techniques, similar to those of Jeff Koons for example.
“I draw, then I refine with graphic designers, 3D specialists, resin, and painters. It’s a lot of great meetings, exchanges and work. To turn the idea into action, a large team is needed. And it should expand, because I make bears in concrete, in wood, in marble, in stainless steel and also in bronze, and holograms. »
The opportunity to position yourself on the NFT collection of an artist who is not at his first attempt and who, on the contrary, is gradually taking the steps to embrace the NFT revolution.
