When did you start getting into NFTs?

I only started getting into NFTs in December 2021 as I wanted to promote my art globally. I believe that moving forward NFTs, are the future for artists! It helps to make one’s artwork exclusive and more appreciated.

What inspired you to launch the Not That Rich Asia (NTRA) NFT collection?

My inspiration is derived from my growth! I was a young boy, not well-to-do, but worked hard to eventually live my dream of being a digital artist. I hope that this NFT collection serves as an inspiration to all young Asian boys to not give up on their dreams and dare to dream big!

Where did you get inspiration for your work from?

I got the inspiration for my work through collaborating with different artists and clients in my art studio. Working with these creative people helped me hone my own art style and eventually apply it to the NTRA collection.

Moving forward, what direction will the “Not That Rich Asia” (NTRA) NFT collection be taking?

The Not That Rich Asia’s (NTRA) NFT Collection is currently in phase 1, with 100 unique hand-drawn NTRA boys on the Polygon Chain! There will also be 10 exclusive legendary NTRA boys. Moving forward I am open to more collaborations as well as giving the NTRA community special perks and utilities.
