Hefty Art has announced it’s association with the Estate of MF Husain to bring exclusive artworks and lauded paintings of Maqbool Fida Husain, to its NFT platform. The collaboration is oriented towards fostering the legacy of India’s finest painter to live on in digital forms. MF Husain Estate and the Hefty Art are all set to announce the first set of NFTs of the legendary painter’s art piece dubbed ‘Fury’. Therefore, Hefty Art, an initiative of Hindustan Talkies and Hungama, are bringing MF Husain’s most celebrated works to the NFT space.
Several Indian celebrities have delved into NFTs as the sector continues to gain immense traction. From Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth to Salman Khan, Yuvraj Singh, and other industry stars, the NFT space has seen a slew of newly launched collections of digital content.
As India takes a step closer to adopting digital assets after years of wavering on its stance, with plans to tax proceeds of crypto at 30% and a proposed digital rupee, the Indian crypto-economy could witness a wide boost. Both intend to leverage this new development to unleash new horizons in the crypto space and art markets worldwide. The Hefty Art will establish its platform as a premier and industry-leading NFT marketplace curated to bolster the era where a wide variety of art forms will transition into the blockchain ecosystem.
