Art auctioneer Simon De Pury of Phillips / De Pury says Gerben is ”A great master of neo-pop art”.
His stunning sophisticated portrait of Maradona captures his timeless character and poise. This exclusive 1-1 NFT will come with a signed 1-1 museum Metallic 40” x 62” print by the artist included with this one of a kind NFT collectable.
