The Limited-Edition Collection Will Feature New Work Inspired By Brosnan’s Hugely Successful “Earplugs” Painting
Pierce Brosnan’s exhibition is a remarkable showcase of unique artworks each sourcing elements of his career and the aesthetics of modern technology.
AUSTIN, TEXAS, JUNE 18, 2021 – Today, LGND Inc. announces Pierce Brosnan’s debut collection of digital artworks titled BIG NOISE. The collection features new work inspired by his painting Earplugs, which Brosnan created while filming his first James Bond film GoldenEye in 1995. BIG NOISE is currently available to preview on LGND.art and will officially launch on Father’s Day, June 20th at 8 PM (EST).
Brosnan’s painting, Earplugs, was inspired by the “how to” instructions found on earplug packets handed out on the set of the movie Goldeneye. Since then, he’s created numerous landscapes, abstracts, and colorful portraits that have sold for up to $1.4 million dollars. For his first-ever NFT collection, Brosnan explores the digital art landscape with new work that’s reminiscent of primitive graphics and 90’s multi-player video games. Compelled by the source material, Brosnan transforms his artwork into a fascinating multimedia NFT that incorporates abstract movement, self-recorded sound elements including his voice, and bespoke visuals.
“It’s been a pleasure to explore this new medium of digital art with my friends at LGND.art,” says Brosnan. “Creating art has always been a passion of mine. Exploring the infinite capabilities of digital art has given me the opportunity to grow as an artist as well as make my work more accessible on a platform that’s also eco-conscious.”
