Funkie is one of the only five Smoochies that are accompanied by creatures that roam our world. On the surface, Funkie is colourful and attractive. However, like in the world of insects, sometimes the most colourful are also the most dangerous or poisonous. Funkie exists to remind us not to judge a book by its cover.
Andreas has risen to NFT stardom through his original creation, ‘Smoochies’. Earlier this year, he launched a debut collection of 36 ‘Smoochies’ that sold out at record-breaking Ethereum valuations, breaking NFT sales records in Asia. The unprecedented demand propelled ‘Smoochies’ into NFT folklore: ‘Smoochies’ are now featured in NFT-spotlight articles in Business TIMES Magazine and Bazaar Art. Andreas’ creations were featured alongside the works of fellow NFT heavyweights Beeple and Pak in China’s first global NFT Exhibition held in Shanghai.
As an expat living in China, Andreas is separated from his parents thousands of miles. This distance has been extremely challenging. His mother’s longing to have him by her side led to the creation of ‘Smoochies’. As a sign of appreciation for his mother, Andreas created ‘Smoochies’ to replicate the kisses his mother imparted in times of difficulty. The pouting design of ‘Smoochies’ is meant to convey the same love, comfort and support that the young Andreas received from his mother. Andreas hopes that the loving message underlying ‘Smoochies’ can bring a smile to its viewers and collectors.
