This piece serves as a reflection of Victor’s most formative year as a young artist. This 1/1 auction piece also includes an archive of the first ever minted versions of FEWOCiOUS’ earliest drawings.
In Fewo’s Words
“I started questioning my gender identity when I was 14 years old. I wished I was allowed to wear the clothes I wanted. I wished my mom would let me cut my hair the way I wanted. My mom told me it's bad to think the way I do. My mom told me if I ever cut my hair, she'd never want to see me again. My mother told me people like me are gross and don't belong. My mother said she wouldn't want me in the house if I presented myself the way I felt. My mother said my mother said my mother my mother said -
My mother never knew who I was. My mother never wanted a son.”
Hello, i'm Victor (FEWOCiOUS) and This Is My Life is a coming of age story through art. Through five new digital pieces and physical paintings, as well as an archive of his earliest never-before-seen drawings from each year, FEWOCiOUS’ new defining series will capture each formative year of his growth from age 14 to 18 as a young transgender artist in the digital era.
An inspiring young talent, FEWOCiOUS has exploded onto the art scene in the past year at only 18 years old, by defying norms and breaking barriers with his digital art.
Each of FEWOCiOUS’ five new 1/1 NFT auction pieces and paintings captures a year of his growth and the transformation of both his artwork and his inspiring journey from Las Vegas to Seattle, and from Victoria to Victor Langlois. Each 1/1 piece is paired with a 1/1 original painting plus a collection of newly and never before minted doodles, drawings and journal entries, hand selected from his archives from that year (14 for year 14, 15 for year 15, and so on).
Upon request, Victor will also personally be delivering the physical painting of each 1/1 auction piece, along with physical prints of the archival pieces, in a custom suitcase to each collector across the world, an ode to how he transported his earliest drawings and paintings, when leaving behind his past in pursuit of a brighter future.
