From Pac Man, Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and Grand Theft Auto, the new NFTs by Super Buddha highlight his love for 1980's and 90's video game nostalgia. In addition to the NFT event, Super Buddha will have original artwork on display with Burgess Modern + Contemporary as part of the gallery's 10-artist roster for the 2021 fair. Buddha has garnered quite the list of followers and supporters. From Musical Artists such as Tory Lanez and Swae Lee; Business Tycoon, Gianluca Vacchi; Boxing Superstar, Floyd Mayweather; and even the Pope Francis himself have purchased or associated themselves with Super Buddha's art over the years. Super Buddha sees his artwork as a positive propulsion strategy to spread the message that there should be positivity and consciousness in every facet of life.

"I see so many things wrong on the spiritual and humanistic level, so my art's intent is to shed more light on consciousness and provide good fortune to everyone," says Super Buddha. Lisa Burgess, Owner of Burgess Modern + Contemporary proudly remarks that "Super Buddha has an undeniable spiritual presence, one born out of his experience as pioneer in the birthing of Shanghai's Street Culture. Super Buddha's contemporary playful ploy on ancient meditative practices gives a jovial jolt to our inner enlightenment as we heed his modern-day mottos. His signature character strives, like we all do, to reject impulses of materiality while instructing life lessons with upbeat gusto." Super Buddha's lighthearted artwork features Buddha as a contemporary spokesperson that captivates the audience with witty one-liners. Exhibited as a repetitive and reductively minimalistic bust of a bubbly cheeked, straight teethed, and large-eyed figure, this bald Chosen One is eternally cheery with his signature long earlobes that symbolize a conscious rejection of the material world in favor of a more spiritual enlightenment.
