On July 22nd, NYC-based photographer Omar Z. Robles drops the ‘Vida’ NFT piece on KnownOrigin. This is the first piece that drops within the “…del Agua” NFT collection.
“The collection was created during my recent trip back to Puerto Rico, my home country, after almost two years of not being able to visit family and friends due to the COVID-19 crisis. It took a lot out of me to be able to make this trip happen. The pandemic left in me a crippling fear of crowds. I had to prepare mentally and emotionally for months in order to be able to even consider boarding a plane again. Returning home to see my nieces and nephew again became my new north and focus to overcome that fear” – says the artist about his NFT piece.
Normally, Omar Z. Robles photographs dancers in urban settings. However, for this series, he went to the place “where he truly finds himself, the water”.
‘Vida’ NFT artwork is an Edition of 1. And it’s really amazing!
