Echo v Parkinson's. Staying in the fight, 365 days a year.Apr 01, 2022
We're pleased to support Alex Echo with his latest project - an NFT collection in honor of his fight against Parkinson's disease. This project is personal for Echo, who has been living with the disease for a number of years. "I want to show that even though I have this disease, I'm still in the fight - 365 days a year," says Echo. We applaud Alex's courage and dedication in the face of such a difficult challenge.
The 63-year-old internationally-renowned and self-taught artist has been creating art for four decades and has seen his work exhibited in some of the world's most prestigious art galleries. Alex had been experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms for around 7 years before being diagnosed.
Parkinson's is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and currently there is no cure. There are 145,000 people living with the condition in the UK and over 10m people globally, and Alex has generated $2m in donations to Parkinson's U.K. through either direct art sales or through partnerships with large brands like Next and Hydrow.
Following a Parkinsons diagnosis, with the disease severely limited his painting, Alex made the move into digital art as a new creative outlet.
"Parkinson's has impacted my work as a painter because my level of skill has diminished so much,". "I'm far more creative now as a digital artist, and it's so much fun," Echo says. "I feel invigorated and alive. So my creativity hasn't changed, but the medium has changed."
So this new collection, launching on 1st April - Echo v Parkinson's. Staying in the fight, 365 days a year, see's Alex release a new NFT each day, helping giving him focus and direction, and very importantly keeping him in the fight against a disease that degrades his life daily.
Each NFT drop will be a stealth drop at a random time of day and priced at 0.1 ETH, announced on his NFT Twitter account (LINK) and available on Opensea at this link --> HERE.
His first of this collection features Muhammad Ali who fought Parkinson’s for 32 years with grace, dignity and sheer will. He stayed in the ring for every round, until the final bell. Alex
