Jim Carrey Launches Sunshine NFT Auction
09 Jun 2022    

By Eva Arajo (Web correspondent)

In a recent article we mentioned how Jim Carrey had bought his first NFT artwork. Since then he got another one but the news today is that Jim launched his NFT's collection on the website SuperRare.

SuperRare, is an NFT marketplace specifically for digital artwork. The platform has coordinated over $300 million in "CryptoArt" sales since 2018.

Currently his art piece in auction is called "Sunshower". The press release says: "Originally a painting, Sunshower is an animated NFT that transforms the artwork into a self portrait with a cascade of color accompanied by a thoughtful and uplifting perspective written and voiced by the artist."

Jim now spends many of his days drawing and painting, and Sunshower is the culmination of many years spent trying to digitize his work for Twitter followers and fans. He produced the animation in association with filmmaker David Bushell.

The piece was originally created with acrylic paint tubes on canvas that Carrey then scraped away, leaving an imprint of the colors. "In that way, creating Sunshower was a thrilling collaboration with chance, a long climb to a daring cliff dive," Carrey said. "The narration is a celebration of our communal light and those quietly exquisite moments that happen for us all."

Jim Carrey's auction will begin at 12 p.m. on June 9 and start at $1.

A very importat note is that a portion of the proceeds will benefit Feeding America. Feeding America is a United States-based nonprofit organization that is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies.

Jim Carrey took to Twitter to promote his new project:

Jim Carrey's talent is unique and we are excited to see more of it and know it will help a very noble cause.
