‘This man should be put in jail’—NFT bro burns $10 million Frida Kahlo painting as mariachi band plays

An entrepreneur is under investigation and may face charges after burning a portrait of artist Frida Kahlo to promote NFT sales based on it. Martin Mobarak burned the picture in 1994, worth $10 million, at a party in Miami in a martini glass.

Kahlo’s sketches are called ‘Fantasmones Siniestros’, or ‘Sinister Ghosts’, in 1944, and are pencil and ink drawings depicting a collection of creatures. It seems that the launch party for Frida.NFT, which aims to sell 10,000 NFT from the back of the stunt, was destroyed. The New York Times reports but the project has already sold four NFTs.
