Michiel Baumgarten

Michiel Baumgarten has been drawing since he was a child. Cars, monsters, super heroes, his family; if he had time to draw, he was drawing. As a child he had a dream: to become a ‘real’ illustrator . This dream has come true!

Since 2007 Michiel has worked as a professional illustrator and has grown a lot to become the illustrator he now is. He still has a lot of fun making illustrations on a daily basis. That could be for a campaign for a client, but he also likes free work, which gives him a lot of energy and ideas for other illustrations. These last years Michiel has (also) become a specialist in drawing for animations.

How will our #nft drops work?

Minty Art Collective will promote its first members, who are professional illustrators & artists with a track record of success. Each member of Art Collective will create 4 digital artworks. Each artwork will be airdropped separately.Art #1 will always start with the lowest reserve price.

Why Art Collective?

Minty has always worked as a place, where professional illustrators got connections with art buyers and designers. NFT’s opened new possibilities for artists, however, with two big problems.
First, the market of nft is growing daily, with new art pieces added every second. Lack of curation, makes finding artwork harder everyday.
Second, are barriers, both based on marketing power and technical resources. Ethereum gas fees, in combination with wallet requirements set an economical & technical barrier for majority of extremely talented illustrators.

We have created Minty Art Collective precisely to fight this problems, by inviting verified artists to our collective and opening doors for them by minting their very first artworks with our Minty Art Collective fund and later use the proceeds from the sales to kickstart their own #cryptoartist careers.

Patron membership, both for bidders and owners

While we will only publish a scarce amount of quality artworks, we still want to be open for collectors to join.
Therefore, along with succesfull buyers, also every bidder will be invited to MAC as a Patron.

Each patron will have priority access to new art auctions by Minty Art Collective members, plus, will be invited to help form a foundation for new Art Collective DAO.

NFT giveaway for bidders

Each bid can be eligible to join NFT giveaway contest. Follow @tasteminty, bid on artists artwork and retweet it with hashtag #mintynft.

NFT giveaway contest is launched automatically for each artist separately, after at least three artworks by artist have been sold in auction.

Bidder, with most bids on all artworks by artist, wins free NFT.
