When Lisa Buyer heard the NFT art market is a not so "meta-diverse" industry, she decided to do something about it.
Before the launch of the first Female Disruptors Virtual Summit in January 2022, Buyer and her 19-year old daughter Kennedy were working on a Female Buddha inspired acrylic paintings project. Part of a painting and mediation course taught by Whitney Freya. The mother/daughter team started the paintings as a way to spend time together in a creative way before Kennedy went back to college.
“When I started learning more about the NFT space and web3, I thought it was the perfect way to roll the artwork into an NFT collection with utility as part of the Female Disruptors Virtual Summit," said Buyer. "It was almost like it was meant to be!"
Women account for just 16% of the NFT art market, according to a report published by the research firm ArtTactic this week.
The story behind the artwork
"This is a collaboration with my 19-year old daughter Kennedy Carbert. Thanks to a painting and meditation class we took last summer by Whitney Freya. Together Kennedy and I created these Female Buddha pieces using acrylics on canvas. Then we magically created NFT digital babies.
