Vinnie Hager's "Diary" Project Guides Us Through an Artistic Revolution

The US artist is releasing an open edition NFT with 100 lucky owners set to receive an original Hager drawing to match.

Baltimore-based artist Vinnie Hager is growing his potential across global corners, preparing to release public artwork in his largest project to date. Hager’s playfully creative approach is equally chaotic and balanced, delivering hand-scribbled graphics that awaken your inner child.

Hager will unveil his intimate personal project, “Diary,” early next month, combining diverse artistic practices across detailed illustrations. “Diary” guides us through his creative evolution since 2016, releasing an open edition NFT with 100 physical drawings going to select digital artwork holders. These 100 pieces were created over seven years and tell a touching story about Hager’s personal life, including parental and personal loss.

Hager’s “Diary” series previews collage-style illustrations with cartoon characters in alternate universes, seeing bulging crocodiles and ill hearts sit next to smiley faces, Illuminati symbols, three-dimensional lettering, and more.

Vinnie Hager’s “Diary” art project will launch exclusively at OpenSea’s NFT marketplace on September 7 at 2 p.m. EST.

Elsewhere, Stray Kids’ Felix Lee is Louis Vuitton’s newest House ambassador.
