Keira Chaplin creator of Cryptochaplins, took time out from her hectic life to talk about her new NFT collection. Cryptochaplins which is now available on Rarible, aims to highlight social and environmental issues with the Superhero ‘Kiera’. The first collection tackles education and will help fund the building of schools in Africa.
Part 1. Biography
Who are you? Where are you from?
I am Kiera Chaplin, born in Northern Ireland, raised in Switzerland until 16 and then moved to the US for 20 years.
What is your background?
My background is mainly fashion and entertainment. I started modeling at 16, then did some acting and producing in my 20’s. Additionally, I also worked a lot with brands designing capsule collections and I also help with my family brand (Charlie Chaplin, I’m his granddaughter).
What type of Digital Art/NFTs do you create?
I’m the creator of Cryptochaplins. These NFTs are 888 unique collectible cards created with the aim of supporting important causes close to my heart. The main character “Kiera the Hero” (a manga alter ego version of myself) will take on the many issues that are threats to our future.
What made you start creating NFT Art?
Basically, the more I do the more I can see the universe of Cryptochaplins taking shape, and then the motivation is endless! To create a community of like-minded people who are interested in art, entertainment and philanthropy is very exciting. This is the beginning of a big adventure. The sky’s the limit!
Part 2. Focus on Artwork
What makes your NFT Art unique?
The NFTs are created in partnership with various non-profit organizations and brands. These Brands already support or wish to proactively get engaged in spreading awareness about, and taking a proactive stance against burning ecological and social issues.
Each partnership brings to life a new set of 8 cards, which are auctioned on Rarible marketplace.
The NFT owners automatically become Members of the Cryptochaplins Universe. This grants them access to one-of-a-kind virtual experiences and other benefits. These include special offers from partnership brands and organizations, as well as updates from the non-profit partners.
Purchasing the cards helps “Kiera The Hero” to save the Future.
What skills and techniques do you use? How long does it take to create your Art?
I use the same character but change her up for each series. This first series is about education and to help the Desert Flower Foundation build schools in Africa.
Therefore, I have her doing different classes. After spending a lot of time creating the character, now it’s more about changing the details and making every card unique all the while conveying the message of her mission.
How do you want people to feel when they view your Art?
I want them to feel intrigued and I want the image to ignite the superhero inside themselves.
Part 3. Market your digital art
What does the future hold for you and your Digital Art?
I have many big plans but for now we will be putting out our series of 8 every two months and grow the community. Furthermore, I also plan on adding more characters and will eventually create a game to go with the cards. Stay tuned!
