Female led NFT collection on Ethereum blockchain - Art built with utility
Poetry in Women collection goes beyond the art - comes with utility. Collectors are able to receive more benefits such exclusive drops the longer they hold on to their NFT, in a process we call 'Composing'. By composing your NFT, you will be a part of 'Poetry of Women DAO' and get to decide how the Poetry of Women fund (20% of the artists royalties from secondary sales) will be spent. As a collective, we (the Composers / Diamond holders) have the opportunity to support other artists, charitable causes and grow collection's brand and awareness by exhibiting in art galleries - the choice is ours.
Unique woman-led collection celebrating women and NFT community on the blockchain with a limited supply of 2,222.
With its unique and distinct style, this collection is at the crossroads of art and technology. The mission of this female-led project was to celebrate women and empower more women to Web3 and not only women - to help to bring and onboard more people to NFTs and help to bridge the physical art world with Web3.
There are many different art styles and art techniques used in artworks of Poetry in Women.

Artists Behind the Artwork
B R Ξ Z N A N I K O V A & K A S T R O
This collection is a passion project of a proclaimed 'badass' artist Breznanikova during some of her toughest part of her life. Art creation of this collection was born out dark emotions and has been what helped Breznanikova came out this tough period of her life stronger. 4 months of constant art creation every day by two artists who are passionate about creating:
The project is a collaboration with with Spanish painter KASTRO whose physical artwork has been exhibited in art galleries. This collaboration has been born out pure love of art incorporating some traditional physical painting and old letter press techniques with the digital - blending the new & old processes.
KASTRO comes from a traditional painting background and his abstract expressionist work centres around the transmission of emotional states. His expressionist style that is imbued with undercurrents of informalism and tachismo blends seamlessly with Breznanikova's trademarked female faces.
Female artist and Vogue published image maker Breznanikova has had a meteoric rise to become one of the top ranking independent female artists on the largest NFT marketplace in the summer last year. Breznanikova has been named a 'badass' artist by some of her fellow established artists that discovered her artwork. She is also a Vogue published photographer and featured artist on OpenSea.
"The creation of the artwork for this collection was an expression of my thoughts, emotions and perceptions of the world; even more personal than my previous work. This collection was about sharing my experience with the world (including that of crypto and Web3) and communicating the message that women should be celebrated and encouraged to pursue not only traditional career paths but also those in Web3."
It is my mission to inspire more women and to create art that elicits a sense of wonder, to mesmerise the viewer but also challenge their perceptions." - Breznanikova
