Victor Langlois, also known as FEWOCiOUS, released FewoWorld “paint drops” for The presale & public sale from April 3rd to April 4th on Nifty Gateway. In the sale, collectors are allowed to purchase as much art as they wanted over a 24-hour window.
In a 24-hour limited public sale, Fewo sold nearly $20 million in NFTs which is the third-highest amount in the history of the NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway.
At the age of 19, FEWOCiOUS is already one of the most successful NFT artists of all time. FEWOCiOUS, is the youngest artist to do a Sotheby’s and Christie’s drop, and even partnered with RTFKT to do a shoe drop that raised $3 Million dollars in seven minutes.

Two years ago, the artist, commonly known as FEWOCiOUS, was just starting out selling his work. FEWOCiOUS told Fortune that it hasn’t always been easy:
“It’s been hard for me to process, to be honest.”
About 5,000 people bought “Paint Drop” NFTs. These colorful blobs of paint are reminiscent of the artist’s trademark style.
FEWOCiOUS has a metaverse-style world, or digital universe, called FewoWorld, where all of his projects can coexist digitally. Going forward, Langlois said, he is working on an NFT project of little characters called Fewos that will inhabit his FewoWorld.
