XXIMI Web3 Art Labs is honored to explore the theme: HEALING with NFT Photographer Fiona Aboud and NFT Artist-Web3 Founder Maxximillian sponsored by NOWHERE Metaverse.

“Brazilian-American artist Fiona Aboud lives and works in East Harlem, NY. She creates images that help us envision more nurturing relationships with others and ourselves. Aboud’s humanistic style addresses economic empowerment, identity, human rights, and racism. In addition to her artistic practice, her mission is to empower artists worldwide in the web3 space to develop financial inclusion that has not been possible in the traditional art market.

Her project for Sports Illustrated on Amputee Soccer players in Sierra Leone in 2007 inspired the documentary “The Flying Stars.” The film and sale of her prints has raised thousands of dollars for job training and community support for Amputees in Sierra Leone.

Aboud’s work has been published in Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, New York Magazine and has been exhibited in both the US and Europe. She is collected by organizations such as Microsoft and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio.

During the pandemic, she refined a method of combining portraits using both a digital and physical process. The images are blended into a textured, tactile physical plate that accentuates the materiality of the photographic object. The more the viewer’s eyes parse these images, the more the portraits fuse into a new idea.”

We are honored to share space with Fiona as she speaks about her selected photographic works in the drippiest metaverse we’ve ever seen with time for Q & A after all art has been presented, followed by an open mic opportunity to riff on our favorite topics: blockchains, NFTs and Web3.

We hope you'll also enjoy A mesmerizing musical star portal performance designed to delight you with healing frequencies from your metaverse host, NFT Artist XXIMI Web3 Art Labs Founder Maxximillian.eth.

Musical Star Portals is an audio visual NFT series designed to delight the mind and elevate any mood. Musical Star Portals each have as their beginnings a real life starry night sky which Maxximillian then uses animation and video special effects to direct the motion of these stars into magnificent portals that come into and through the visual experience in sync with the sweeping strings of modern classical music and the huge cinematic build-ups of movie scores, the musical compositions of Maxximillian.eth—that’s me!—swirl around the listener in a sonic experience that can be felt as if the frequencies themselves caress the listener before transcending into an unknown vapor, to reform again in another time and space as you, and me, or as another iteration of stars.
