NOOBLEZ is the brand name for the network of decentralized (or “decentric") art galleries designed by Leslie Helpert, a NYC-based multifaceted musical-visual artist, writer, and voice researcher/educator. Helpert’s NFT collection is comprised of amalgamated virtual characters she's constructed via NOOBLEZdecentric galleries.
The first NOOBLEZ release emerges from "fictitious" sister galleries SNOOF [London] and SNUFF [NYC], featuring six "fictitious" creators, Cindi Le Clic, HELPY (the half-monkey/half-woman ambassador of NOOBLEZ), FUCHI TUTU, Hexi Mickenfly, Mrs. Greensponge and YU IKBOI. Poody Snacherooni is the NOOBLEZ gallery dog, whose image is featured in the Opensea collection (captured by Cindi Le Clic)
Currently, the entire collection of all artists can be viewed on Helpert's Opensea launch, HERE.
NOOBLEZ was made to support Helpert's STEM (science, tech, engineering, math) and Art clinical research-based initiative, and proceeds for NFT sales will go directly to this cause.
More on NOOBLEZ first collection, and the network of conjoined virtual galleries:
All NOOBLEZ artworks possess both analog, hand-drawn/painted elements as well as digitized pixel-focused components; many possess effective aspects of “chromotherapy” (color-based therapy) and textural affects. All NOOBLEZ pieces can stand alone or be paired with other NOOBLEZ pieces for ultimate multi-screen collections.
NOOBLEZ represents art that tends fits the following conditions: the works are fun, they speak for themselves, are interpretable and often play subtly (or overtly) on NFT and computer culture. In some cases (like with the “Block Bitches” collection or the “Douchies” trading cards), NOOBLEZ NFTS affirm the presence of women and a uniquely-female perspective in the world of block chain technology.
Additionally, NOOBLEZ exemplifies the capable creative spectrum of the resourceful individual, capable of expressing only herself beyond a "single dimension" of persona, and, rather, invited to express a diverse breadth of character. While NOOBLEZ artworks often advocate in support of women's liberties worldwide, NOOBLEZ inclusively intends all artworks to be inviting to diverse collectors/purveyors of the art and NFT world.
Positioned as a handful of individual-but-united NFT artists, NOOBLEZ collectors may learn through simple investigation that the NOOBLEZ artists are, in fact, rendered by singly one creator. Lastly, Helpert is not fixed on any artist needing to solely be represented by the NOOBLEZ gallery, the gallery, ultimately, just stands as a cataloguing “sorting” space for Helpert to curate NFT work.
