An NFT inspired by English singer-songwriter David Bowie belonging to The Bowie Estate's exclusive collection with leading NFT marketplace OpenSea has been sold for over 96.5 ETH or around $127,000, based on the current price of ETH.

The Bowie Estate officially partnered with OpenSea to launch the "Bowie on the Blockchain," a 15-piece NFT collection focusing on the British pop legend and his life. The collection was officially listed on NFT marketplace OpenSea on Sept. 30, and as per OpenSea, it consists of artworks of over nine artists across the NFT space.

Interestingly, the collection highlight, created by 19-year-old NFT artist FEWOCiOUS, includes an animated video featuring a physical seven-foot-tall sculpture adorned with one of Bowie's custom suits from his archive, CoinDesk reported Tuesday.

"I thought it was so cool that he always was what he wanted to be. And created a world that he wanted to live in. That's really the feeling I try to capture in my art. To my community & me, Bowie felt like hope. He taught me how to grow out of the world that always told me 'no," FEWOCiOUS stated in the description.

The other NFTs in the Bowie on the Blockchain have been sold in the price range of 3 ETH ($4,000) and 7.5 ETH ($9,800).

Despite the prevailing crypto winter, popular NFT projects have been doing fairly well. Recently, Chiru Labs, creator of viral NFT collection Azuki, confirmed a Series A funding round and plans to raise $30 million.

Yuga Labs, the firm behind Bored Ape Yacht Club and Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT collections, is also planning to debut a new NFT collection called Mecha Apes and plans to raise $50 with the sale of the same.
