Vivian Ng Suet Yuan’s first NFT work will be published. The artwork will be auctioned on the NFT marketplace OpenSea. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Women’s Aid Organization (WAO).
Known for his cheerful and lively art, Ng for the first time created a work that he calls the “negative emotion” theme.
The 29-year-old artist Ng explained how he socialized during the pandemic and where he got his inspiration while creating the work:
