The Ape Souls is a collection of 7,345 (1/1) hand-drawn NFTs painted with acrylic on Canvas. Our Souls exist on the Solana blockchain, designed with 100+ Artistic Traits.
Ape Souls is A community-driven project made under the label of CiCKartworks, featuring artworks by CiCK (The artist behind PicaLions, DISOBEYPUNKS, Fake Banksy Punks, Punkedups, and ElonMonst).
We have deployed all of our previous collections on Polygon and Ethereum; Ape Souls is our entering to the Solana world, so what concept works better than the SOUL itself when you’re on SOuLANA.
Artist-Statement: Ape Souls is not affiliated/related to Yoga Labs or BAYC. Honestly, we’re 100% against them regarding our mentality and philosophy.
When I(CiCK-lead artist behind this project) read that article about the hidden fascistic idea behind BAYC for the first time (*BYAC creators have used many secret fascistic symbols on their NFTs, you can find more info on Google), I got so mad that you can’t imagine; then I’ve made a promise to myself, I should do all I can to fight with them.
Metaverse is a world that has no colors or borders; that’s why I fell in love with the Metaverse so in love that I quit my everyday job as a filmmaker and devoted my 24/7 for almost a year making over 55k NFTs with my team, in this space, making here more like a home for me, and my family which is now more than 14k <3 Metaverse is our home, and now those fascists think they can implant their evil ideas into this world too! which WE WON’T LET! So I’ve decided to turn that anger into my protest.
We believe as long as someone thinks he/ is better than other humans for color or genetics, we won’t have much difference with apes, So I’ll work with the ape concept as long as I get sure that everyone can hear our protest against any fascism in the Metaverse and the world.
So if you’re a BAYC fan, sorry for disappointing you… we’re angry souls who want to bring those fascists(BAYC) back to where they belong, ZOO!
join us for making a better world, and It’s time to make a change with our souls<3
