Ellen Sheidlin, also known as Sheidlina, is working in collaboration with AKNEYE to create her own sculpture.
Who is Sheidlina?
Ellen is a Russian photoblogger and painter, working with a unique style that she has developed herself – survivalism. It is a multimedia combination of physical and virtual elements, blending both realities into creative fantastical photographs and works of art.
She has always believed that the world would one day return to reality, and that humanity will fall out of love with social media. Her art and vision have a strong connection with nature and the world around us. Everything she does is a meld between herself and some natural element – creature body parts, flowers, plants, earthly landscapes. Sheidlina manages to transcend our reality into ethereal themes while making them look so real.
In a joint collaboration, Ellen is creating her own AKNEYE sculpture decorated to her style. A personal hand-painted project, the eye is a pastel encapsulation of her personality as well as her taste. It will debut on March 16th at the Grand Opening ceremony of the ftNFT Phygital Store in Dubai Mall – at which point the eye will be put up for sale as an NFT.
This one-of-a-kind piece can be seen at the ftNFT Shop in its physical form, and its NFT is listed on our Marketplace. Once the NFT is purchased, the customer owns the physical sculpture as well.
As Sheidlina continues to let her imagination thrive, her works evolve and take on new forms. She collaborates with various brands to share that artistic nature in places that encourage it, as well as places that she herself could inspire – as in her mind, art deserves to be spread into the world.
