Good news, Friends fans… you now have the opportunity to take home memorabilia from the infamous series. No, really! Contemporary pop artist Burton Morris’ debut NFT collection, The Art of Friends, is accepting bids until June 7!
Over the show’s ten seasons, Friends featured a dozen of Morris’ original artworks, including behind the notorious couch in Central Perk! In a statement, Morris shared: ‘The future of these iconic works are now in the hands of the fans that made Friends one of the most beloved series in television history’.
‘I remember the day my sister called to tell me she saw an actor on a new television show called Friends wearing a tee-shirt featuring my artwork of a big hitter baseball player. The actor was David Schwimmer (Ross), who wore it during the taping of the third episode’, he added.
Morris went on to explain that he linked with the show’s creators who wanted to feature his art on set. 25 years later, collectors and fans can now own and immortalise the show’s influence through The Art of Friends for generations.
Anyways… 11 pieces will be auctioned as an NFT, including Coffee Cup, King Kong, Lady Liberty, and more, with bidding beginning at $100. Big Hitter, the iconic work that launched Morris’ legacy on Friends, will be available as a limited edition NFT at $150.
And if you’re unfamiliar with NFTs, you can acquire, trade and re-sell them using a platform called Etherium (ETH)!
