French artists Mrzyk and Moriceau have recently released a collection of 100 NFTs to art lovers across the globe, and will be donating over 10% of their gross profits to breast and prostate cancer research at Paris’s Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus.
French duo Mrzyk & Moriceau began building a tight-knit community of passionate art lovers in October 2021. The community has united on a Discord server, where they have shared their passions for art, music and all things M&M. The first public sale (outside of whitelist) of Mrzyk & Moriceau’s digital art sold out within 18 hours, and has since seen the community hold on to their NFTs, strengthening the project even more.
Since the birth of this ever-growing community, the artists and members have expressed a desire to donate a portion of the funds raised to cancer awareness. The community actively chose Gustave Roussy as the benefactor, with equal donations made to the breast and prostate cancer research divisions.
The donation will be made on 1 March in the amount of 1.5 Ethereum going toward breast cancer research and 1.5 Ethereum going toward prostate cancer research, for a total of 3 Ethereum.
It is with humble hearts that Mrzyk & Moriceau along with the No Falafel Today community offer these donations, and all those behind the project aim to continue providing donations from future NFT releases to impactful organisations, to be decided upon by both artists and art owners.
“Seeing Mrzyk & Moriceau move into the NFT space has been a great journey. The artists have been very open-minded towards the process and testing new opportunities that come with it. Having an extremely committed fan base and the willingness to donate to such a great cause is where the magic happens. We hope this will help pave the way for more traditional artists who have not yet taken the leap into NFTs and also promote the idea of using this industry to do good” – said Geran de Klerk, founder of the partner agency KINGLY|CLARK, leading the project.
About Mrzyk & Moriceau:
United by drawing since they met at the Beaux Arts of Quimper in France, Mrzyk & Moriceau probe at our unformulated fantasies, and translate them into a ‘tonic’ in an ever-growing universe. Their style is recognized by soft, round, elastic shapes with a dominant use of black and white and a whole lot of humour underpinned with assumed frivolity.
The artists have amassed a following of over 280,000 fans on instagram and collectors from all corners of the globe.
The duo are represented by Air de Paris Gallery.
