Boy George is one of the first artists to join forces with Crypto.com's upcoming NFT platform to release exclusive art and music-related content.
According to a press release, the 'Karama Chameleon' hitmaker will release exclusive content using "technology to combine his talents of music and visual art, bringing together animated and still versions of his own paintings together with his iconic songs."George said: "I think life turned me into art. My role models were both artistic types and hard-working types. I've painted myself and others. I have painted myself into a corner. I love metaphors and mystery and crypto sound like klepto so that makes me a crypto maniac. Art is like a partner? Can you live with it? Digital art is a new emotion and it can be very musical.

As well as the Culture Club star, the likes of the hip-hop veteran, 'Hello' hitmaker, respectively, and 'Sea Shanty King' Nathan Evans, are also collaborating with the invite-only platform, which launches on Friday (26.03.21).
