2️⃣ Block 2 – project introduction by speakers
First set of questions to introduce the project!
Q: Can you please introduce yourself and tell us how you became the artist you are today
A: Hello my name is Lina Valentina.
I am a contemporary artist and I currently live between Los Angeles and New York.
I have dedicated my work to women’s causes.
When I was 14 years old, I immigrated with my parents to Spain before moving to the United States a year later.
It was during these very disruptive changes that my grandmother, who had remained in Russia at the time, passed away suddenly.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend her funeral and say goodbye. That day I made a promise to her in my heart: to make her name known through artworks dedicated to the women’s cause
Q: Can you tell us more about your partnership with Safe Horizon
A: Safe Horizon is the number one foundation in the US for helping victims of abuse and discrimination. It’s a foundation that I have supported for many years and with whom I exchange a lot about domestic violence. It’s an honor to create an artistic project in collaboration with such an important foundation.
We agreed to pay them a percentage of the royalties that we will receive because I want the people who own my NFTs to see a part of their investment help many people on a daily basis.
Q: Can we have more information about the collection
A: It will be a collection of 7777 high-quality 3D NFTs featuring my famous “No More” mouth dedicated to women’s causes which I’m known for. It represents this mouth that makes the choice not to be silent on a daily basis. I think it is very important that people who suffer from domestic violence, harassment, or discrimination do not lock themselves in silence. I have wanted since the beginning with my art to denounce all this violence and try to give the courage to all these people to express themselves, the NFTs are just a new way for me to express my art and share it with more people.
No More is a varied collection representing exclusively women of all horizons. I decided to dedicate my project to the violence towards women because it is what I underwent and what I fight daily but No More also aims to encourage all people undergoing violence to have the courage to express themselves.
3️⃣ Block 3 – question from ICO Speaks team ask me anything with NoMore
Questions from ICOSpeaks team!
Q: Can you tell us more about the holders event that will happen at the Cool HeArt Galery ?
A: It will be an event where every person owning a No More NFT will be qualified to participate.
It will be as you said at the Cool HeART Gallery in Los Angeles. Holders will be able to meet me and some of my artist friends and celebrities. We will display some of the NFTs in the gallery with NFT digital display frames together with some of my physical art. We will also hand over the first cheque to Safe Horizon live.
Q: Can you tell us about the metaverse gallery and what’s the process to be Part of it?
A: No More aims to create a metaverse gallery for artists and projects that fight for a cause we stand for, we didn’t choose the metaverse where it will be yet.
To be featured in our metaverse gallery, there will be a form to fill that our team will review. This gallery will bring together all the projects that fight for a cause and share our values on a daily basis in order to bring them visibility.
Q: Can you tell us what are your guys next major priorities in 2022?
A: Our major priority for 2022 is to make this project known to as many people as possible to really impact and help as many people as possible through my artworks and with the help of Safe Horizon.« No More » aims to give confidence to millions of people by not feeling alone in their suffering. It’s time to stop being silent.
We hope this project will also give women the desire to be more present in the web3 environment, and highlight artists that fight for a cause through our metaverse gallery
