Sci-Fi Art Anthology Brings Bold Artwork as a vIRL® NFT to Auction on WAX
Nostalgia and wonder strike hard and fast with Sci-Fi Anthology’s 60-year lineup of retro art derived from some of the greatest classic Sci-Fi books, movies, magazines and radio shows throughout history.
Now is your chance to own an ultra-rare 1-of-1 NFT and a one-of-a-kind fine art print when the Sci-Fi Art Anthology brings a stunning auction to WAX on December 8, 2021.
Own A Piece of Art History
The Sci-Fi Art Anthology collection kicks off with an ultra-rare 1-of-1 entitled “A Story of Days to Come” via a vIRL NFT WAX Digital Auction. The piece was originally from H.G. Wells’ All Seeing Eye Amazing Stories published in April 1929.
Within the piece, the famed author predicts what the future may look like, including the first-ever idealistic glimpse of moving sidewalks — “people movers,” as he liked to call them. Wildly enough, many of his off-the-wall ideas came to fruition.
Bringing the futuristic scene to life, Artist Frank R. Paul brilliantly illustrated “A Story of Days to Come.” The image bursts with pigment, displaying a set of staircases descending into the subterranean transports, while a glass-screen advertisement projected on the side of an office building illustrates the latest in women’s fashion.
In the 2000s, this iconic artwork was brought back to life by a team of digital artists after being commissioned from the famed “Ackerman Collection” (curated between 1910 and 1970). It’s a piece of art history you don’t want to miss out on.
This is only the beginning, keep your eyes peeled for more auctions to come!
