The Golden Fish Goblin is one of my special works, because in Eastern and Western cultures there are definitely different myths around supernatural beings like fairies and goblins. In China there’s a myth around the Yin /Yang fish. It’s about seeking the balance of dark and bright, good and bad, positiveness and negativeness, all dynamically balanced.
This piece is also a representation of the fusion of animal and human. All life forms, no matter spiritually or physically, are all one and should not be bound by their differences.

The Golden Fish Goblic - Chen Man

The Astronaut was done in 2004 when Chen was still in college and it was also the year China successfully sent astronauts into space, so this piece was a celebration of that success. She remembers going to the markets to buy the lace decoration for the neck as a representation of royal highness. This piece speaks of fashion without boundaries between time and space, I use visual language to make a connection between tradition and innovation, time and space, past and present.

Astronaut - Chen Man

The piece is from the "ikon-1" collection but the piece contributed to the drop is an original 1 of 1 image that is not a photograph from his original archive. (Special Edition).

ikon-1 - Nick Knight

Photographed in February 2016 in the River Dart in Devon, England, a woman swims, by choice, alone in icy cold waters in the rain. She swims for connection and solitude. In summer the river can be walked across at this point. In winter the river is fast and deep, the rocks are tortuously dangerous. The swim is both dangerous and affirming.
The photograph speaks of ecological and environmental issues and female independence. It is at first a timeless image and yet thoroughly today.

Swimmer in the rain - Liz Collins

Ellen von Unwerth gained popularity with her sensual Guess campaign in the early 1990s and, since then, has created captivating campaigns and images for dozens of the world's most recognisable brands and magazines.

Iconic of her work, “White Bunny” - shot in 2012 with styling by Sascha Lilic - depicts a model getting ready for a dress up party and is available as a one-of-one phygital NFT.

Award-winning German photographer Ellen Von Unwerth has been a regular contributor to Vogue magazines globally, lending her astute eye to create images of women that capture the zeitgeist.

In ‘Truck Stop’, supermodel Christy Turlington is seen crossing the street in the south of France while the driver is taking her photo. Styled by Alice Gentilucci, the image was published in the March 1990 issue of Vogue Italia.
