WHAT IS TIK KA TIGER

Tik-Ka, famous Hong Kong based artist, creator of the series ‘Tik Ka From The East’, known for incorporating traditional Chinese drawing styles within a modern art concept. He is pleased to announce that he is working on a NFT project - Tik Ka Tiger NFT, collaborating with a team. Stay tuned for the upcoming Tik Ka Tiger NFTs release! 

The project name Tik Ka Tiger comes from the artist's previous work, inspired by Hong Kong custom folk ‘Villain hitting’. The Chinese idiom ‘have a tiger by the tail’ means something too difficult to manage or cope with, while ‘taming the tiger’ in Chinese reflects the chance to escape or resolve this problem.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, local creator Tik Ka’s art works are imbued with deep cultural feeling. Influenced by Hong Kong East-meets-West culture, Tik Ka has created ‘Tik Ka From East’ – artworks that blend Eastern and Western style of art harmoniously and showcase the city’s unique culture. Tik Ka Tiger NFT is a collection of NFT artwork created based on the essence of ‘Tik Ka From East’, with an aim to promote the east-meets-west style of art, as well as introducing the Chinese culture tradition, such as Cantonese, marital art and its spirit, to people from every corner of the world through a Metaverse experience. 

Through Tik Ka Tiger NFT, we hope that ‘Tik Ka from East’ can reach a wider audience and inspire them to explore the spirits of the culture, We believe Tik Ka Tiger NFT supporters are fascinated by the beauty of the east-meets-west style of art. Your support is the key to the success of this project. Every Tik Ka Tiger NFT holder is encouraged to participate in our community in the Metaverse.

When we complete the primary goal and establish a stable community in phase 1, we will give back to the community with some of the revenue, and seek collaboration with NGOs that help conserve Hong Kong culture traditions. We are committed to reinforce our beliefs through online and offline channels. 

With the essence of decentralisation in web3, we would like to see active engagement in our community. Everyone is invited to discuss the development of Tik Ka Tiger NFT , while all of the first generation Tik Ka Tiger NFT holders are given the right to decide the future of Tik Ka Tiger NFT . 

Part of the profit generated by Tik Ka Tiger NFT will be used to purchase land on the Sandbox. We plan to open a ‘Tik Ka Tiger Metaverse’, a community place for our members to meet up and interact with each other. At the same time, we will also explore the feasibility of producing physical products and organizing offline exhibitions according to the opinions of supporters. 

We will publish the latest news on various platforms to keep our community up to date. 

When the sales of the Tik Ka Tiger NFT project reaches 1000 or above (including WL mint and Public Mint, but free mint is not included), within the announced timestamp period, all holders can get a Tik Ka Tiger NFT special edition vinyl “ The awakening Tiger” for free. 
*It is expected to ship by Q4 2023, and the shipping fee will be paid by this Tik Ka Tiger NFT holder.
