NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s New York reports the results from its latest online auction of NFT artworks made by the celebrated and prolific 18 year-old transgender artist FEWOCiOUS, presented as part of Christie’s Pride program. Hello, i’m Victor (FEWOCiOUS) and This Is My Life realized USD $2,162,500, closing today after competitive bidding from more than 20 collectors.

A coming-of-age story told through art, the series Hello, I’m Victor (FEWOCiOUS) and This Is My Life consists of five new, unique NFTs, each lot accompanied by a physical painting and never-before-seen doodles and diary entries. The deeply personal and poignant work speaks to his personal experiences as a young artist making a gender transition between the ages of 14 to 18—from Victoria to Victor.

Noah Davis, Digital Art Specialist at Christie’s, said, "I couldn't be more elated for Victor. He went all out on this project and bared his beautiful soul for the world. I hope his success shines bright for other young creative people who might be struggling with similar issues of identity and acceptance."

Marking another important moment for the growing digital art market, the collectors of FEWOCiOUS’ work sold at Christie’s will have an opportunity to meet the artist in-person. FEWOCiOUS will personally deliver the physical painting of each 1/1 auction piece, along with the archival pieces, in a custom suitcase to each winning bidder around the world—an act that is symbolic of how he transported his earliest drawings and paintings when leaving behind his past in pursuit of a brighter future.
