Visual Artist And Musician Jimmy Edgar Doesn’t Feel Immense Potential For Music NFTs 



The year 2021 saw great hype around NFTs. The crypto winter however this year negatively affected sales of NFTs. But its decentralized nature continues to attract various artists. Recently, Jimmy Edgar, musician, and visual artist, said NFTs being intangible is not necessarily a bad thing. 

Edgar has collaborated with various known artists in the music industry such as Charli XCX, Miguel, Machinedrum, and Vince Staples. Edgar has even remixed Lady Gaga’s popular piece “Babylon.” Edgar has now delved into NFTs. 

On August 11, Edgar is launching an NFT collection dubbed OXYGEN. It has 13 artworks that dabble into the viewer’s conception of the liquid, air, immaterial and consumerist symbols of adulthood. A press describes Jimmy’s artwork as “Through a metaphysical process that Jimmy coins ‘digital condensation,’ the imagination solidifies as literal objects.” From 11 August to September 11, the NFTs will be showcased in a solo exhibition at the Vellum LA NFT gallery in L.A. Sinziana Velicescu and Alice Scope organized the exhibition.  

The earlier collection by Edgar, OBJECTZ, and OPTIONZ, similar to his collection OXYGEN, also had punchy color gradients, surrealist physicalities, and 3D-rendered images. The art pieces were also inspired by artist Jeff Koons.

Talking about his artwork, Edgar says the viewers will always find humor in them along with a pinch of sarcasm. Edgar’s first NFT venture dates back to early 2021. Looking at his friend getting excited about NFTs and their potential, Edgar wanted to try out and implement the idea immediately into his visual art. 

Meanwhile, music for Edgar is like unseeable sculptures. Sharing his views in an interview, Edgar says he always looked at “music as sculpting in a way.” Music, Edgar explains, is immaterial in a way that we can just hear and feel it, but can’t see it. Edgar is skeptical about musical NFTs. He doesn’t see the same potential as visual art in them or the current NFT applications for music.
