Here's How You Can Get Your Very Own Larry Alcala NFT
National Artist for Visual Arts Larry Alcala's six decades' worth of zany characters and comic strips continue to find a way to endure. In August, a retrospective was even dedicated in honor of the Slice of Life creator's career. Now, Larry Alcala has officially entered the Metaverse.
Scarletbox.io, which happens to be the first Blue-Chip Fine Arts NFT (Non-Fungible Token) Launchpad in Asia, just launched its latest PFP (Profile Picture) collection. The group tapped some of the leading NFT artists in the country for the images.
This Larry Alcala collection was done in collaboration with help from the likes of Bored Punks of Society, Mustachioverse by Ownly, Planktoons, Black Eyed Freaks, Distort Monsters, and Bjorn Calleja. According to Scarletbox, the collection is its way of celebrating Alcala as a Filipino pop culture icon.
Part of the Black Eyed Freaks (@blackeyedfreaks) branding is the PFPs' hollow eyes.

Bjorn Calleja (@bjorncalleja) is one of the leading NFT creators in the Philippines. The multidisciplinary painter is best known for his otherworldly monstrous characters, who reckon with the ecological, social, and internal.
