Jasti is one of those artists who suddenly decided to put their talent to good use and try to make something completely new in the NFT community. Considering this is still a new and unexplored metaverse, everyone has a chance to become well-known artists these days.

Victor Langlois

To say that Victor Langlois or FEWOCiOUS is different would be an understatement because this 19-year-old artist from Las Vegas changed the way we look at NFTs. It’s one of the most inspirational stories where childhood trauma was transformed into relatable art pieces and later sold as NFTs on all major platforms.

Known for artistic, colorful, and identity-focused work Victor Langlois earned over $26 million on NFTs alone and he even had pieces sold at auction via Christie’s and Sotheby’s. This revolutionary approach to digital art attracted a lot of attention and buzz, so Victor took the chance to expand to the metaverse.

FewoWorld is a new NFT project where “paint” owners get to participate in the specialized and artistic metaverse, with different perks and options. The platform even has unique characters planned in the near future, so this metaverse could compete with some well-established ones such as SandBox or Decentraland.
