With the growing interest in owning a variety of digital assets, many artists and designers have moved beyond the boundaries of reality and technology to create NFTs as a form of digital representation.
One such artist who has succeeded in this technological phenomenon is CH Pulgarin, the owner of the exciting new NFT project RICH KID $ CLUB. This is a digital art campaign consisting of 7,424 creative NFTs of characters called “ANT’S”. This project represents the values of fashion, collaboration, and work ethic.
CH Pulgarin was born in Los Angeles but grew up in Medellín, Colombia. At the age of 16, he returned to the United States, settled in Atlanta, and made a name for himself in his pop art scene. Through his art, CH Pulgarin has integrated references to urban fashion trends and multiculturalism since his childhood in Colombia and his teenage years in Atlanta. Currently, the famous celebrity who bought his work is J. Includes Balvin, Juanes, Maluma and Karol G.
The spirit of his art comes from CH Purgarin’s “change, want to change, and need to look different.” In terms of tangible art, he re-evaluates the old art he received from antique dealers by painting on them to change their beauty. It is a story that one person’s garbage is another person’s treasure. These works of art symbolize the added value of CH Purgarin and cite him as an artist.
With the move to technology, CH Pulgarin continues to take advantage of this artistic perspective of wanting to change things through NFTs that go beyond traditional canvas. RICH KID $ CLUB was an idea that came to fruition among a group of friends when NFTs were talked about, but the people who created them weren’t from a traditional artistic background. The lack of artists in the space is another driving force behind CH Pulgarin’s passion for translating his creativity through these digital assets.
That said, one of CH Pulgarin’s greatest inspirations for his art stems from his desire to be an inspirational figure for Colombian children. He sees RICHKID $ CLUB as a long-term project, but CH Pulgarin wants to use it as a way to support young people by encouraging them to pursue art. CH Pulgarin is committed to providing the necessary resources for children in the Colombian town of Copacabana through a social initiative named Lil’Ants.
CH Purgarin’s works in tangible and intangible art are based on three values. His first value is his mission to change how Colombia is often associated with the history of the drug. CH Pulgarin wants to change this story by emphasizing the success stories of Colombian artists, athletes, musicians and other public figures. The second value is rooted in a culture that creates a world of hope, innovation and collaboration by strengthening self-expression and self-love. The final value is to work like an ant. This is anthropomorphized by the “ANT” character used in the upcoming NFT, and shows that you can really realize your dreams by working hard.
