Langlois’s NFT Artwork Sales
Langlois has made $50 million in less than a year by dealing his NFT artworks. The 19-year-old first attained popularity after selling physical artwork and NFTs with title “Hello, I’m Victor” and “This Is My Life” for $2.16 million at Christie’s auction house in New York. Both artworks stand to explore Victor’s childhood and gender transition from ages 14 to 18.
Langlois, also known as FEWOCiOUS, has achieved much distinction, and the sales of his digital artwork have roared since the first NFT sale. He sold an artwork worth around $20 million within 24 hours of minting last April. It was considered the third-largest sale of NFTs in the history of the Nifty Gateway marketplace as of then.

According to the artist, the NFT trade has taught him that art isn’t necessarily always painting.
In an interview with American men’s magazine Esquire, Langlois commented that he was initially scared to appear as a transgender person and was slammed whenever he was found entangled in the artwork. Speaking of his grandmother, he told that he believed that she struggled so much that she just wanted security. To see him wanting to pursue art, she was like: What? Be a lawyer. Which he understood. But it hurt when she would say, Your art is unattractive and that’s the reason you can’t do it.
NFTs have become quite popular amongst digital artists, and NFTs are helping artists by bringing transparency to the ownership of their digital art.
