Florida man burns $10 million Frida Kahlo masterpiece for publicity: now he can be arrested
Millionaire Martin Mobarak set fire to a precious $10 million Frida Kahlo painting in a martini glass as part of the NFT launch, reports Luxury launches.
The entrepreneur did not blink an eye before criticizing the work of the world-famous artist, which demonstrates blatant disrespect for the work of others. What's more, he filmed proudly setting fire to a small, colorful drawing of Kahlo to promote the sale of digital versions of a rare 1944 artwork.
According to the country's National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature, the now-defunct work of Frida Kahlo was considered a national treasure of Mexico, because of which Mobarak was at the center of the scandal, and the Mexican authorities have already taken retaliatory measures.
“I hope everyone here can understand this. I hope everyone can see the positive side,” he said, before removing a brightly colored “Fantasmones Siniestros” from its frame and lighting it on fire in a martini glass full of fuel.
This beautiful piece of art will be replaced by 10 unique copies of "Fantasmones Sinistros" by Mobarak NFT. The sale is expected to benefit the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico, the Frida Kahlo Museum in Coyoacán and several child health charities. “We are going to change the lives of thousands of children,” Mobarak said. The National Institute of Fine Arts of Mexico expressed its opinion and launched an investigation into the destruction of the drawing.
“In Mexico, the deliberate destruction of an art monument is a crime under the federal law on archaeological, artistic and historical monuments and areas. All the necessary information is currently being collected to establish with certainty whether the destruction was an original work or a reproduction, ”the institute said in a statement.
It's funny that the Palace of Fine Arts has not received any donations from Mobarak or his company Frida.NFT.
Can revered physical art be burned to make it a unique find in the Metaverse?
Wherever you go, remember where you came from. This proverb is important for those who strive to make the Metaverse their new home and livelihood. A concept artist blew up a $250 Lamborghini and turned the destroyed pieces into a collection of 000 NFTs under the pretext of protesting the get-rich-quick culture of cryptocurrencies.

Burning anything against the get-rich-quick idea just to sell NFTs and get rich quick yourself is the dumbest NFT-related story in a long time. This only proves that people will stop at nothing to burn beautiful objects and works of art just to profit from them, charred or not.
