Offering Bored Ape NFT owners a chance to bring their characters to life as high-end collectibles
PureArts will pair their approach to high quality collectibles w/ support from BoredJobs to license characters directly from the Bored Ape Yacht Club community.
PUREARTS is recognized internationally in the collector
and the high-end statue communities for its artistic approach, dedication to detail, and unique storytelling through sculpture.
The selected owners will be in good hands as PureArt’s history reveals work with brands such as Assassin’s Creed, Terminator, Batman, DarkSouls, Lord of the Rings, League of Legends, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, and many others.
For the first PureArts x BAYC community collection, PureArts plan to create two initial lines of product, 1/8 scale and 1/6 scale collectible figures.
The 1/8 line (around 9” or 23cm) will be a standalone character and utilize PVC/ABS to keep the maximum of details and textures.
1/8 scale example here
The 1/6 line (around 12” or 30cm) will be a more complex statue, in mix-media materials, it will feature a creative scene with lot of details and display one or two BAYC!

Final price, quantity, and sizes have not been finalized and might change.
What is PureArts making?
PureArts is bringing an industry best approach and more than 12 years of experience to their BAYC collection.
The goal is to make a product the BAYC community loves, without taking advantage of their passion for BAYC products by charging a ridiculous premium. A percentage of royalties on the sale revenue will be paid to the selected BAYC holders.
As any BAYC owner knows, community is everything. PureArts understands this and is dedicated to building products for the community, licensed from the community.
With warehouses in EU, UK, North America and China, we will do our best to ensure most customers will have no hidden fee at delivery. (Duty and import taxes are paid by Purearts when the stock reach our local warehouse)
