NFT PROJECT DANKBOTS DIFFERENTIATES ITSELF WITH A FOCUS ON COLLABORATION AND A ROSTER OF SOUGHT-AFTER PARTNERSHIPS TO BACK IT UP.
DANKBOTS — a PFP project of algorithmically generated Block Shaped Bots living on the Ethereum blockchain — is already one of the most anticipated NFT drops of 2022, minting Tuesday April 12th.
With a muted palette and clean, minimalist art, DANKBOTS has caught the eye of leading NFT artist, JACK BUTCHER, who referred to the art as “classy”. The minimalist refreshing aesthetics alone are not the only element drawing such immense interest in the upcoming NFT drop.
Founder of DANKBOTS, BRENDAN TADLER says “The artists involved believe in our thesis for the Fine Art Community and our future plans for the project. We support emerging artists by collecting their work, funding their projects, and collabs to support a higher level of Art for the NFT community. We are looking to provide the opportunity for new artists to be found, supported, and celebrated with access to leading artists in the space. A collaborative community for both emerging and established artists.”
Sharing the belief that the best outcomes are from open discourse and collaboration, DANKBOTS places an emphasis on working together, supporting camaraderie and community, and the spirit of empowerment within the NFT Art world. On a mission to educate the broader community of PFP enthusiasts and collectors about NFT Fine Art and Artists, DANKBOTS has put together partnerships with some of the most influential and respected names in the space. The result is a World Class roster of artists and cultural icons collaborating with DANKBOTS. Each artist has put their own spin on a DANKBOT, creating highly-sought after 1 of 1s that will be incorporated in the upcoming mint. Notable names include, MR. OIZO, NICOLAS SASSOON, EBOY, PIXELORD, JACK BUTCHER (VISUALIZEVALUE) and ROZWELL. See below for the full list of collaborating artists.
Not only do these collaborations enrich the project, but they enrich the community of artists too. By elevating more fine art in the marketplace and leading by example, DANKBOTS inspires and encourages a more supportive future. With a focus on collaboration and education, DANKBOTS will prove to be a pivotal project in setting new standards for NFT PFPs.
Full list of the Iconic Collaborations involved in DANKBOTS genesis drop:
MR OIZO. Quentin Dupieux. Born in 1974 in Paris. At age 12 he began creating short films and music. By 19, he sold a short film to a French TV channel, and by 23 a campaign for Levi’s with his iconic character Flat Eric and the classic electronic hit Flat Beat. He has written, directed, shot, and edited 10 feature films — 5 in the US, 5 in France, all featured major film festivals (Cannes, Sundance, Sitges, Venice, AFI, to name a few) — 7 studio albums and an incalculable number of EPs and remixes. Oizo jumped into the NFT scene a year ago, still alive, kicking and inspiring.
NICOLAS SASSOON. A Franco-Canadian artist using early computer graphics to create a wide array of pixelated forms & figures, moiré patterns & architectural structures.

His work has been exhibited in numerous art institutions, including the Whitney Museum of American Art (US), Vancouver Art Gallery (CA), Victoria & Albert Museum (UK), Centre Pompidou (FR), House of Electronic Art Basel (SW), MU Eindhoven (NL), Chronus Art Center (CN), the Berlin Fashion Week (DE) and the New-York Fashion Week (US).
