American actor, film director, musician, screenwriter and producer Johnny Depp (Johnny Depp) also draws. The world learned about it in January, when Depp announced the sale of unique NFT tokens for 11,111 of his own paintings. Among them were mentioned portraits of his friends and people who inspire the actor.
The collection of paintings in the NFT format was called Never Fear Truth (“Never be afraid of the truth”).
After a high-profile divorce and trial with actress Amber Heard, Depp lost several roles in Hollywood. In November 2020, Depp was deprived of his role in the third part of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The artist explained that warner Bros. studio decided to break the contract with him, so he will no longer play Grindelwald. And then the cryptocurrency market opened its wide embrace for the disgraced Depp.
However, the trial with Heard, which lasted almost two months and ended this week, can return Depp to his former glory, and still bring some (or a lot) of money. In addition to being awarded $10 million in a libel case, NFT’s Never Fear Truth collection jumped in price after the court ruling was announced.
NFT from the Never Fear Truth collection today sells at a minimum price of 0.52 ETH (about $ 944). Prior to the trial, the collection did not grow too much in price after the minimum price peaked at 1.64 ETH on March 11. However, success in court has drawn attention to Depp and now his many fans can enrich him in this way.
All token buyers will have access to johnny Depp’s closed community on the Discord platform, where they will be able to work together on creative projects.
Anyone will be able to purchase digital copies of portraits of Heath Ledger, Tim Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando and Hunter Thompson, Depp himself, as well as his daughter Lily-Rose Depp, the dog Mu and the actor’s fictional character Banniman on the www.neverfeartruth.com website. Each lot is a ready-made portrait, created according to the original works of Depp, and then decorated and additionally animated.
A quarter of the proceeds from the sale of NFT money Depp will transfer to charitable purposes. The actor plans to support children’s hospitals in Los Angeles and London, as well as transfer funds to the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation and the Gonzo Foundation, created in memory of the writer Hunter Thompson.
