The official project that has as its main character the iconic cartoon The Smurfs, was present at the “NFT Paris” event.NFT Paris“which was held at the Grand Palais Ephémère and featured a live performance by street artist André Saraiva, who made statues of the Smurfs out of recycled plastic and 3D printed. The statues were painted and auctioned to fund initiatives dedicated exclusively to protecting the oceans.

If you want to know everything about the official project The Smurfs Society, I invite you to read the article I wrote called ‘The Smurfs become NFTswhere you can find out what this new official idea of one of the most famous cartoons in the world is all about.

However, to put some context to this note, The Smurfs Societyis an official Smurfs Web3 project and is an NFT collection launched in December 2022. Currently, an innovative blockchain game was launched and is in DappRadar’s Top100 as one of the most active Web3 communities worldwide.

The goal of the project is to harness the power of blockchain technology and grow digital communities to unite collective interests with individual rewards while inspiring, funding and driving positive actions like this latest one at the NFT Paris event.

NFT Parisis one of the biggest events surrounding the non-fungible token ecosystem and The Smurfs Society was present alongside French street artist André Saraiva. This event held at one of the most important events of the NFT industry is a clear example of what the team of The Smurfs Society is looking for. The Smurfs Society team plans to do in the future with the mission of becoming one of the leading projects of the NFT ecosystem and at the same time, helping different activities to care for and protect the planet.

How the Smurfs statues were made

First, The Smurfs Society partnered with Colossus, who took it upon themselves to collect recycled plastic from recycling garbage cans like the ones placed around the NFT Paris event and subsequently, transformed that plastic into a giant, 10-foot-tall Smurf sculpture.

Last Saturday, February 25, André during the NFT Paris event painted the giant statue, but 10 smaller scale statuettes were also added. In total, the 11 statuettes were attached to different unique NFT certificates and auctioned on the Rarible platform. A large part of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to ocean protection initiatives.

Watch how the step by step creation of these statues went with the super production that was made and posted on the official Twitter of The Smurfs Society along with the announcement of the collaboration of the street artists I named above.

Moreover, the project will launch the PFP collection in spring 2023 and there will be exceptional collaborations with featured artists and partnerships with multiple exclusive Web3 communities, as, The Smurfs Society team’s goal is to position itself as one of the most important communities in the NFT and Web3 ecosystem in the world.

Finally, owning the Smurfs Society PFP will give the opportunity to gain access to a collaborative and innovative platform to obtain and finance initiatives that have real intentions to protect the planet.
