A decision was made to mint the remaining tokens so collectors can choose as it is art and art is subjective. We have consulted the community / collectors beforehand & agreed that it was a good idea and best way forward and we sponsored the cost. Any remaining tokens owned by 'Poetry' are open to offers if not listed.
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 and empower women and help to bridge the physical and digital art. This collection is about art and designed for art lovers; created by two artists Breznanikova & Kastro who are passionate about art and the potential of blockchain technology.
There are many different art styles and art techniques used in artworks of Poetry in Women. Art is subjective and this is an art collection and not a typical NFT project so art will always be subjective and it is not just about specific trait or its rarity.
Traits - Art style, Art technique, Vibe, Colour Tone, Writing, Eyes
Some of the rare traits are crypto writings and heterochromia for eye colour. Heterochromia (different coloured eyes) was inspired by huskies - more rare in humans. There are only 1 - 3 NFTs with heterochromia with same colour combination!
Some NFT & crypto language / writing on artworks can also be quite unique.
This is art so each artwork is unique but if you would like to see the rarity ranking the collection is listed on Rarity Tools: rarity.tools/poetry-in-women and Rarity Sniper: raritysniper.com/poetry-in-women and OpenSea also added the rarity rankings on their platform
There are about 8 artworks per woman - some more and some have less

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.
Vogue published image maker Zuzana Breznanikova has had a meteoric rise to become one of the top ranking independent female artists on the largest NFT marketplace OpenSea in the summer of year 2021. Breznanikova has been named a 'badass' artist by some of her fellow established artists that discovered her artwork. She is a Vogue published photographer (IG: @breznanikova.photography) and featured & verified 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

Poetry in Women art collection - ROADMAP
Building a Brand
As part of the Roadmap we would like to build brand awareness of the collection as well as Breznanikova brand.
One of the missions of this female-led project is to help to bridge the physical art world with Web3 / NFTs and to bring and onboard more people and art collectors to NFTs via various channels and art galleries.
We were excited to have the Poetry in Women collection featured on Times Square during the last NFT NYC event.

By becoming a Composer of your NFT (holding), you gain a Composer* - 'Diamond hands' status and the opportunity to gain an early access to future artwork of Breznanikova). The artists also created exclusive collection for Composers - 'Composed by Poetry in Women' on Opensea (on Polygon).
