Multi-platinum Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Ozuna and renowned French sculptor and visual neo-pop artist Richard Orlinski have partnered to release an NFT collection on Rarible, facilitated by Zytara Labs.
Ozuna, one of the world’s most popular singers and Latin Grammy award-winner, made history earlier this year by becoming the first Latin Recording Artist to drop an NFT collection. Richard Orlinski is always eager to discover new forms of art, and enters the digital NFT world with this collaboration. These upcoming digital art pieces—a collection titled ‘El Oso & Wild Kong’—are inspired by Orlinski’s art work, most notably his iconic sculpture the Wild Kong, and Ozuna’s famous Teddy Bear logo.
