Thyssen National Museum in Spain teamed up with the Olyverse platform to mint its own NFTs to be a unique collection featuring masterpieces of Van Gogh.

Thyssen and Olyverse will turn Van Gogh’s artworks into digital assets to be displayed in the metaverse. Each NFT will represent a stunning original artwork for Van Gogh. The collection is considered limited as only 100 NFTs will be available for purchase on Telefónica’s NFT marketplace news.

This will make Thyssen the first national museum in Spain to do a such mint, especially for a well-known artist like Van Gogh.

The owners of Van Gogh NFTs will have the chance to showcase their digital artworks on blockchain-powered screens through collaboration with tech giant LG.

In this regard, CEO of Olyverse Carlos Grenoir said: “By democratizing access to art through NFTs, we hope to enable individuals to experience Van Gogh’s works in a new way. Our metaverse serves as a platform to exhibit and explore these digital masterpieces, offering an immersive and enriching experience that transcends traditional museum boundaries.”

The Olyverse Platform is a decentralized stars club, which aims to bridge the gap between celebrities and their fans in an innovative way using Web3-based technologies, such as NFTs. Through these NFTs, the fans can interact with stars through different activities and take part in experiences in the metaverse.

The platform also hosts other celebrities like Turkish actor Kerem Bürsin, former FC Barcelona defender Carles Puyol, and Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky.

In March, the Metaverse Arts Museum, the first NFT Arts Museum in the world, announced its official launch on The Sandbox to showcase immersive NFTs and gather creators, artists, collectors, and the blockchain community with the goal to offer support to innovative projects and NFT artists from the MENA region.
