Drop n.02 has landed
Visionnaire NFT 2° drop will be a phygital art experience: a physical bust carved in Carrara marble and a unique NFT.
After the 1° teaser on Foundation with 3 NFTs, the vision for this 2° drop is to create a singular and one-of-a-kind piece of art in opposition to the ever-evolving and massively reproductive space of NFT art.
This 2° drop tells the unique story of the union between traditional art and the NFT, combining craft, quality and digitalization.
The life-size bust, inspired by the capitonné leather typical of the furniture world, decodes antiquity by bringing back to the contemporary the careful study on the contrasts that made the work famous: softness and hardness, virtual and physical, past and future.
Combined with the marble statue, Monaghan created a surreal 3D animated video where an alien-like spacecraft reveals the sculpture in a Baroque environment.
“The bust is confronted by a fiery red panther, a symbol associated with the ancient Greek god Dionysus and notions of chaos. The Olympian deity Apollo, a symbol of aesthetic perfection, appears to vanquish the beast and restore order to this dream-like world”.
Our partners for this project include sustainable blockchain Palm NFT Studio for minting and 4ARTechnologies, a marketplace that also provides security and protection for the art and collector.
DROP NUMBER 01
Launched on Foundation in March 2022
In this baroque vignette, the iconic Apollo Belvedere is re-imagined with capitonné, a luxurious furniture-like skin. This rendition of the famous bust is a study in contrasts between the virtual and physical, in a futuristic yet classical interior environment.
Surveillance Allegory is a surreal combination of soft fabrics, baroque architecture, and surveillance equipment. Contrasting the past with an uncertain future, the work poses the question: “How do we envision tomorrow?”
The Art of Vaporwave
Nostalgia and the history of digital art come together in this baroque homage to the Vaporwave aesthetic. The Apollo Belvedere is present between different dimensions, as the connecting protagonist of the digital art landscape.

Digital Artist | Graphic Designer | Animator
The American visual artist works on the relationship between physical sculptures and 3D animation. Drawing on a variety of sources like art history and video game subculture, Jonathan is an early adopter of NFTs and he has been using the bitcoin blockchain to authenticate his digital artworks as early as 2013. Since then, he has been active in the cryptoart space, including being featured in the launch of crypto.com’s NFT platform. After his exhibition at the Sundance Film Festival, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Monaghan found in Visionnaire the perfect partner to reimagine the masterpiece Apollo del Belvedere.
