The Ape Souls NFT is a collection of 7,345 hand-drawn NFTs painted on canvas using acrylic. The Souls are built with 100+ Artistic Traits and live on the Solana blockchain. The Ape Souls is a community-driven project produced by CiCKartworks and showcasing artworks by CiCK (The artist behind PicaLions, DISOBEYPUNKS, Fake Banksy Punks, Punkedups, and ElonMonst).
The team’s prior collections have been deployed on Polygon and Ethereum, and the ape souls will join the Solana universe. The Ape Souls NFT Collection is not linked with or related to Yoga Labs or BAYC, and the crew is completely opposed to their attitude and ideology.
Statement from the Ape Souls NFT Artists
When I (CiCK-lead artist behind this project) first read that article about the hidden fascistic idea behind BAYC (*BYAC creators have used many secret fascistic symbols on their NFTs, you can find more info on Google), I was so enraged that I made a promise to myself that I would do everything I could to fight them.
The Metaverse is a world without colors or borders, which is why I fell in love with it so much that I resigned from my day job as a filmmaker and spent my 24/7 for about a year generating over 55k NFTs with my team; in this space, making it more like a home for my family and me, which is now over 14k 3 Our home is the Metaverse, and now those fascists believe they can install their wicked ideals in this realm as well! which WE WILL NOT ALLOW! So I’ve chosen to channel my rage into a protest.
We feel that as long as someone believes he/she is superior to other humans because of race or genetics, we won’t have much difference with apes; therefore, I’ll work with the ape notion as long as I ensure that everyone in the Metaverse and the globe can hear our protest against any fascist.
So, if you’re a BAYC fan, I apologize for disappointing you… We are outraged spirits who wish to return those fascists (BAYC) to their rightful place, the ZOO! Join us in making the world a better place, and it’s time to make a difference with our spirits.
Ape Souls NFT Utilities
- The team has introduced CiCKstake, which allows every holder to receive one free item from the following collection; thus, when you mint or purchase from its NFTs, you are purchasing a golden ticket that allows you to access NFTs indefinitely!
- The team admires its community and artistic taste, so why not honor that crazy spirit by giving them paintings forever?
- Inspired by Andy Warhol’s art factory from the 1960s, the team decided to create the first art factory in NFTs. Thus, they made their things so inexpensive that everyone could mint and join their family. We feel that a strong community is essential.
So far, we’ve built two factories: PicaLabs and Fake Banksy Labs.
