live art, the web3 platform transforming the art market, is bringing its industry-leading tools for creators, collectors, communities, and brands to the BNB Smart Chain. The major new initiative was announced today by LiveArt Co-founder and CEO Boris Pevzner at Binance Blockchain Week in Paris and extends a range of LiveArt’s web3 products and features to the BNB Smart Chain.
Through its white labeled launchpad, LiveArt is empowering creators and partners to build on the BNB Smart Chain, enabling the creation of fully customized and branded web3 applications designed for both traditional collectors and crypto natives. The platform is also introducing the Binance Account Bound (BAB) tokens utility into its ecosystem and to its community of over 400,000 collectors. BAB token holders will have access to an exclusive membership that includes special whitelist access and other benefits on the LiveArt platform.
LiveArt also plans to launch select NFT collections by globally-recognized artists on BNB Smart Chain, beginning with a new generative NFT collection by Huang Yuxing, the renowned artist breaking global auction records. The new initiative follows LiveArt’s collaboration with BNB Chain this summer on the LiveArt Global 100, an open call to artists that drew over 500 applicants from more than 50 countries, with the top submissions currently available to acquire on the Binance NFT Marketplace.
Boris Pevzner, Co-Founder and CEO of LiveArt said, “LiveArt has everything a creator or brand is looking for as they enter the web3 space: a network of globally-recognized artist and creators, top-notch expertise in both web3 and the arts and culture, and a full spectrum of tools and solutions to get their projects off the ground. We’re excited to empower our partners to launch on BNB Chain and to enhance LiveArt’s own LiveArt ecosystem with the capabilities of the BAB token.”

Arts and Culture Projects With Leading Global Artists on BnB Chain
Coming to BNB Chain This Fall: Chapter 2 of Huang Yuxing’s Meta-morphic
The following launches of NFT collections by major artists on the LiveArt NFT platform, including Paul Kneale, LiveArt is collaborating with the renowned contemporary artist Huang Yuxing (b. 1975, Beijing) on Meta-morphic, the artist’s first digital artworks. Huang Yuxing is widely recognized for paintings that reflect and preserve the process of their creation. His work’s exceptional synthesis of styles has broad appeal, with imagery that calls back to traditional landscape painting rendered in an ultra-contemporary neon palette that verges on abstraction. Huang’s works have already surpassed the $8-million mark at auction, most recently via the sale of his epic riverscape Seven Treasure Pines (2016-19), which sold for HK$64.8 million ($8.3 million), more than 13 times its high estimate, a record sum for a Chinese artist born after 1970. Huang Yuxing’s collection with LiveArt is a multi-chapter drop, including generative artworks and staking.
