One-year-old NFT Artist Becomes the First Toddler to Raise Money for Charity through the Blockchain

A New Zealand toddler is set to become the youngest artist on the blockchain to raise charitable donations through NFT auction.

At 16 months old, Klementine has produced three unique works of abstract art. Each of these is available for purchase via auction on the popular NFT platform, OpenSea.

Klementine’s father uploaded each of the pieces to the site in the hope that funds could be raised for three local charities that have played a role in Klementine’s life – Starship Child Health, St John Ambulance and Royal New Zealand Plunket Trust.

“Each of these charities has been an invaluable part of Klementine’s life”, he explained. “It would be wonderful for us to be able to give back to these amazing organizations”. The pieces are vibrant, colorful and impulsive, a unique reflection of a child’s mind, something which Klementine’s father believes makes them unique.

“These pieces are truly one of a kind”, says Klementine’s Father. “With kids as young as Klementine, there are no rules when it comes to painting. There is little consideration of technique or composition, they paint exactly what they feel in that moment”.

This concept lends itself perfectly to non-fungible tokens – something which is 100% unique and can never be recreated.

In conjunction with these 3 auction pieces, which start at 0.25 ETH, there are also 15 additional minted pieces taken from the original works available at a 0.15 ETH (approximately $500) fixed fee. One of these pieces has already sold, giving Klementine the title of the most expensive NFT ever sold by a one-year-old.

The winning bidders of the auctions will be a part of internet history, owning artwork from one of the youngest NFT artists of all time.

Auctions for each piece end September 22. The entire Klementine’s Abstract Creations collection can be viewed here.
