The legendary Chicago Bulls have 6 rings to their name and an emblem that hasn’t been changed since 1966. Now, the basketball club with deeply rooted traditions is entering the NFT space with The Aurochs NFT collection. An auroch is a predecessor to the bull, marking the philosophy behind the team that had arguably the best line-up of all time in the Michael Jordan era.
One of the most experienced artists working on the NFT campaign is the former Google Creative Director Julian Gilliam, better known as LOGIK. The renowned digital artist is also a member of the Bored Apes Yacht Club, as he owns Bored Ape #2265. On top of that, Julian Gilliam has contributed to his community by opening a Japanese language school for black & brown kids of Chicago. Moreover, all the classes at Chiba Center are free. In a nutshell, LOGIK is definitely the one to “watch out for”.
