Swappable Is Live: 1st NFT Drop From World-Renowned Artist Jani Leinonen

TrustSwap is excited to announce the launch of Swappable, a user-friendly NFT interface featuring exclusive drops from world-renowned artists and celebrities!

Opening Drop by Jani Leinonen!

Today, we are pleased to unveil the opening drop on Swappable created by renowned artist, Jani Leinonen. The artist’s first-ever NFT portrays his signature piece ‘Things You Own’, a one-of-one animated artwork created exclusively for release on Swappable.

The 3-day auction is now live and will conclude on Friday, August 27th at 10am PST. You can view and participate in the Jani Leinonen NFT drop here.

Jani Leinonen is known for his provocative and playful works criticizing capitalism and consumerism. Leinonen was propelled to fame after his infamous kidnapping of a Ronald McDonald statue from a restaurant in Helsinki, where he posted videos online threatening to “decapitate” the clown if McDonald’s would not answer questions about its ethics.

In 2016, Leinonen was awarded the Finland Prize by the Ministry of Education and Culture, which is given in recognition of a significant career in arts. Jani’s works can be viewed in museums as well as private and public collections around the world.

Jani transformed the Stalla Madulain gallery, a 500 year old barn close to St. Moritz, into a “Chapel of Remorse”. His most acclaimed artworks are currently featured in the 5-star Dolder Grand hotel in Zurich alongside more than 10 of his most prominent creations on permanent display.

A common pattern of his work is turning overly familiar images upside down, planting them in a context we are unaccustomed to, taking a stand against the superficial view of life dominated by the very modern, corporatist idea of ‘positive thinking’.

You can find out more about Jani’s artistic career and his first NFT artwork, ‘Things you own’, in this article.
