Plus, the original Mazur canvas “Blah, Blah, Blah” (oil and acrylic, measuring 33 “x 39”) and 1-of-1 NFT – a collaboration with infamous artist and designer Jim Evans (aka TAZ) who has worked with everyone from Quentin Tarantino to The Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine – will be available as part of the collection. Each of the 5,050 NFTs generated is based on the layers of the original paint and the 1 in 1 NFT created by the iconic duo. Their appearance and rarity will vary in this limited and unique version.

Music fans around the world know about Ruby Mazur’s work. At the start of his career in the 60s and 70s, he created more than 3,000 album covers for musicians and film scores. He is perhaps best known for his instantly recognizable design of the iconic “Mouth and Tongue” illustration for the 1971 Rolling Stones single, “Tumbling Dice” – the striking logo has been associated with the band ever since.
With its stunning mouth and tongue image surrounded by labels depicting elite consumerism, “Blah, Blah, Blah” is reminiscent of Mazur’s easily identifiable signature creation. Recalling the inspiration of the painting, the artist explains: âI was in a gallery one evening during one of my exhibitions, and I heard this couple speak. The man said, ‘You know, I was going to bring the Rolls, but it was dirty. So I took the Lamborghini instead, and as I was riding – son of a bitch – I scratched my Rolex! It was definitely what we would call ânew moneyâ.
âHe continued like that, just to brag. As I listened to it, I just rolled my eyes in my head, and all I could hear was, âBlah, blah, blahâ¦â I went home and immediately painted the room.
“Blah, Blah, Blah” embellished prints quickly became big sellers. âI take the oil print and paint on it,â says Mazur. âI sell them in different sizes, but everyone wants the big ones. “
The NFT hybrid of âBlah, Blah, Blahâ will certainly turn heads, as the animated mouth opens and a giant tongue pops out and a voice growls âBlah. Blah-bla-bla-bla. .. âMazur said,â It’s really something else. With the digital animated version, it really comes to life.
Of the 5,050 generative âBlah, Blah, Blahâ NFTs, Mazur says, âI think it’s great that there are all these different variations of my painting. In most NFT auctions we are talking about very large sums of money being traded. Here we are offering many people the opportunity to purchase Generative NFT at an affordable price. “
Cosmic Wire CEO Jerad Finck said, âWe are delighted to feature Ruby Mazur’s original paintings alongside our NFTs of his work. I consider him to be the Andy Warhol of our time, he is pop culture embodied. We are also honored to be in business with notoriously brilliant artist Jim Evans. We were thrilled to have her art direction in collaboration with Ruby for the 1-of-1 NFT. He took ‘Blah, Blah, Blah’ in so many different directions, bringing it to life in his own way. Finally, it was an amazing experience collaborating with the ninja developers, Kaleb and the rest of the Byt team. The whole project just has freshness everywhere.
