The founder and CEO of Astar Network believes Yoshitaka Amano is one of the most influential artists of the 21st century, and he is very honored to work with him and bring his art pieces to life with the help of newly emerged blockchain technologies and NFTs.
The collaboration with Mr. Amano is part of Astar Network's partnership with Twin Planet to help extraordinary artists transform their work into digital assets and bring their art to the public.

Astar will also build a Web3 entertainment site for the collection to take root in its ecosystem, connecting NFT ownership to real-world value through the partnership.
The limited edition NFT collection is also a part of Astar's vision of bringing the East to the West and introducing international leaders to the Web3 world.
