Despite the fall of the cryptocurrency exchange, interest in NFT creativity (the so-called fiat tokens – digital art for thousands of dollars in the form of blockchain technology) is not weakening. Yes, a Hollywood star. Jim carrey bought the landscape of an abandoned Soviet sanatorium, where he liked to relax Joseph Stalin, as an NFT product.

In fact, it is an Internet image. But unique and unrepeatable. Original digital art product. The piece, bought by the Mask star, is titled Devotion and depicts a sanatorium in the western Georgian town of Tskaltubo, once a luxurious holiday destination in the USSR. In the 90s, of course, abandoned.

The painting was created by a Dutch-Canadian artist Ryan Koopmans and Swedish digital artist Alice Vexell. The actor thanked them.

“Thank you so much to Ryan Koopmans for capturing nature and its relentless transformation so subtly,” Jim said. And he added that this is the first NFT work in his collection.

The picture shows a landscape in the style of Andrei Tarkovsky’s films: one of the overgrown premises of the boarding house, through the missing door of which wildlife is visible. The Hollywood actor paid 39.5 thousand dollars (2.2 million rubles) for this.

In Soviet times, the Georgian city of Tskaltubo was a popular resort, famous for its sanatoriums and medicinal water. In the 50s-80s, the entire political elite came there to improve their health, including the leader of the USSR, Joseph Stalin.
