Andrea is an art studio created in Madrid (Spain) back in 1983 specialized in the creation of unique sculptures, dioramas, and art in miniature in different scales. Our artworks are the object of international praise by collectors, and we have travelled the world collaborating with museums and other artists due to our mastery of the art of sculpting ultrarealistic pieces and perfectly historically accurate depictions after a thorough research process, but we have also explored many other subjects such as pop culture, comic, sci-fi and even fantasy. Many well-known licenses have trusted our studio to create sculpture prototypes of their characters.
We have always challenged the traditional idea of art, explored many different subjects, and obsessed about transcending the physical dimension of a sculpture and blend it with the digital world, that is why we incorporated the 3D technology to our studio many years ago and developed a unique mixture of traditional sculpting and 3D that eventually lead to the creation of crypto art where traditional sculpting and painting meet technology in a perfect and unique environment.
This NFT piece brings to life the shot of the most famous kiss in the history of photography. It depicts in a striking graphical manner the joy when it was announced in Times Square, New York, that the Second World War was over. The "spontaneous" kiss was immortalized whether it was staged for visual impact or unprompted we don't know. There will always be a lingering doubt as both the photographer and the nurse died in the 1990s without revealing the secret, whilst the sailor was unknown. This jewel of Crypto-Art brings past and present beautifully together as the center piece of it, the kissing couple, is a 54mm 1:32 scale hand made and hand painted sculpture and the scenery has been amazingly recreated digitally after months of painstaking work involving a team of special effects professionals and digital video artists. The collector who acquires it not only will receive the video creation but also the hand-made & hand-painted physical sculpture in 54mm 1:32 scale.
Collector gets: video creation + hand-made & hand-painted physical sculpture of the kissing couple in 54mm 1:32 scale

"...And when the light dissipated from that strange object, the mist did as well. A raven over a large red sphere was revealed before my eyes and I felt that it was the beginning of the end of everything."

The importance of Napoleon Bonaparte´s role in European history is evident and needs no further remarks. This famous and controversial character has produced an immense iconography. Among the thousands of pictorial representations of Napoleon there is the famous painting by Delaroche depicting him in 1814 at the time of his first abdication. Here the Emperor appears in an unusual pose, deeply concerned by the surrounding circumstances. The extraordinary attention to detail displayed in this Delaroche's painting is now represented in sculpture. Delaroche's work has been very closely studied to produce a stunning three dimensional Crypto-Art version of the famous canvas.
