• Vakseen, an art and music legend, is about to release a new collection on MakersPlace

  • Vakseen, aka Otha Davis III, is bringing an unique NFT collection called “Legends Only: Los Angeles” to MakersPlace this week.

    Vakseen will contribute eight strong paintings to the collection. The artworks pay homage to the Los Angeles scene, honoring the city’s cultural icons as well as the importance and global impact of the city’s pop culture. Each piece depicts a different significant Los Angeles figure from the 1980s through the late 1990s.

    Vakseen is a museum-exhibited self-taught artist as well as a multi-platinum music executive, producer, and composer. With his vanity pop style, he has not only generated successful singles, but he has also carved out a major and respected position for himself in the art world.

    To name a few, his work has been shown at Spectrum Miami/Art Basel, Adidas, Vans, BBC World News, HBO’s Insecure, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, the city of Los Angeles, Gallery 825, Abend Gallery, Baton Rouge Gallery, and Soho House London.

    His work has also appeared in American Art Collector, Buzzfeed, Hi-Fructose Magazine, LA Weekly, Vibe Magazine, PoetsArtists, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, Professional Artist Magazine, High Times Magazine, and Supersonic Art, among other publications.
