System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian has announced a new art exhibit called Not for Touching — The Intangible Composition.

As its name implies, the project features a variety of NFTs, set to original music composed by Tankian.

“I got into painting to see my music,” Tankian says in a statement. “By adding musical compositions to art, we’ve created a more powerful encompassing experience for lovers of art and music.”

“NFTs are a natural progression allowing the art and music to move within the scopes of our retinas and our creative minds,” he adds. “I called it Not for Touching (NFT) ’cause it’s a lot sexier than non-fungible tokens.”

Not for Touching debuts December 6 via the site CurioNFT.com. A selection of pieces will also be available as physical giclée prints.
