The First Official Artwork On The Moon

The First Official Artwork On The Moon

Selenian has teamed up with Spacebit and Astrobotic in association with NASA CLPS to send the world’s first official artwork and a five-series Charitable NFT Collection to the Moon – the first official art mission in history, scheduled for 2022.

The first official Artwork entitled ‘We Rise Together – with the Light of the Moon’, created by contemporary British Artist Sacha Jafri, will be placed on the Moon with the help of Selenian, a pioneering company that specialises in the curation of art in space, and Astrobotic, a commercial space company, in association with NASA under the Commercial Lunar Payload Services initiative known as NASA CLPS. The landing site will then become a world heritage landmark preserved forever.

The Artwork will be revealed to the world in a press conference next week. Jafri has used an aerospace grade aluminium gold plate as his canvas in order for the Artwork to be fully resilient to the lunar conditions and to last eternally on the Moon.

Jafri’s original work will be placed on the surface of the Moon triggering the release of a five-series NFT Charitable Collection. The original work will rest in the solitude of the Moon, emanating energy back to Earth. Five NFTs will launch to commemorate each stage of the mission – from the rocket launch entering the stratosphere, the Earth circumnavigation, the Moon sling-shot, the Moon landing and the legacy of the eternal artwork on the Moon.

In addition, 88 unique Hearts that fly to the Moon as part of the painting, will be released to the world as the Jafri ‘Moonheart NFTs’.

Jafri’s piece ‘We Rise Together – with the Light of the Moon’ will be placed alongside NASA scientific payloads, along with other instruments and technologies.

Recently, Jafri’s work The Journey of Humanity, a charitable project – which holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest painting on canvas – became the second most expensive painting ever sold in auction by a living artist when it fetched $62 million US dollars in March 2021. Jafri has raised more than any other artist in history for charitable foundations and has received a United Nations Award for humanitarian work.

The Mission also sees the launch of Jafri’s Cryptonaut Series – 10,000 Cryptonauts derived from Sacha Jafri’s original drawings to be announced before the launch.

Jafri’s commitment to humanitarian work continues as part of the mission, with a percentage of the funds raised from the Moon mission pledged to charities that focus on four major issues of the world today – Equality for All, Sustainability, Education and Health.
