“My name is Matthew. And I’m telling you the truth. They doesn’t want what They needs most. They desires Earth, Air, Fire and Water. I can i i everything else. But They does not know that. They doesn’t know, but this. This is What They Want.” -Them
This is What They Want
American emerging artist Matthew Joseph Tinkler takes hold of the virile NFT space with his most complete body of work yet. This is What They Want is a project of 1,000 works challenging our currently extant species. In a playful commemoration to the CryptoPunks project, Matthew has included 9 Aliens and 24 Apes in this collection. There are a variety of attributes and symbolisms that will become community-evident, including 2 purple hats and 1 Robot.
This is What They Want reaches beyond archaic pixelation -and- animated 3D motion GIFs for a more authentic style representative of Matthew’s strong background in painting. The results are cartoonish, haunting and breathtaking scenes representative of the late 21st century. After seeing such works, it’s without argument that Matthew has cemented himself and his work permanently into the zeitgeist. As Marshall McLuhan once stated, “the medium is the message.”
