We propose reinstating Max Osiris as an Artist on SuperRare, so he can return to minting new works on the platform. We perceive this as a win/win for the artists and the platform.
Max Osiris was banned for the second and final time from SuperRare for minting |10|10|10 [EDIT] LOVE, a piece that utilized parts of other artists’ work. He was banned the first time for a similar issue, concerning a different artist’s work. However, as with Robness, appropriation is a part of art. Some of the most iconic works in the history of art involved the appropriation of IP. Max has also made significant contributions to the evolution of Crypto Art, and the Trash Art movement, in particular.
Reinstating Max would add value and diversity to SuperRare’s roster of artists, and is aligned with the values that underpin this space. Using a decentralized governance process to reverse previous decisions is a powerful act and sends an important signal to the whole community. It would reinforce the fact that SuperRare is a truly decentralized platform, and have a positive ripple effect throughout the space. It would send a strong signal on SuperRare’s differentiation given Meta’s entry into this space and the ability to sense and respond to the changing landscape of community/DAO based activism.
Artists may think that they can flout SuperRare’s terms and conditions, and get away with it.
Whitelist the following address for minting on SuperRare:
