Upstart Film Collective is proud to present the private works of famed New York City muralist, Arnie Charnick, available now for the very first time as a collectible NFT. Subject of the award-winning SXSW 2018 documentary Getting Over and the 2019 short film The Muralist, Arnie Charnick has been on the art scene in New York for 50 years. He has created multiple murals for the world-renowned Veselka Coffee Shop in the East Village, including the famed Veselkhiarascuro. He recently completed a three-panel mural of Times Square in the lobby at the Hotel Edison.
Now is your first opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind digital copy of the private works of Arnie Charnick. Here we present Roz & Joe from 1993. A hand-drawn color pencil sketch on paper, this work is a portrait of the artist's parents, Rosa & Joseph Charnick. This NFT includes an unlockable high-resolution 600dpi TIFF scan of the original sketch, suitable for printing for a personal collection.
The original physical version was destroyed, and this is your only opportunity to own the authentic NFT direct from the artist's estate. No copyrights are transferred with this NFT, and physical reproduction of the file is limited solely to the buyer's personal collection.
