Own 1 of 1000 beautiful scenes

Hand painted

Each asset used to generate a unique canvas was hand painted by Portchie himself.


We tailored a state of the art (no pun intended) scripts and smart contracts to generate each NFT uniquely. Meaning each of the multiple painted elements and their variations is given a chance to get selected through weighted random selection, and then precisely compiled according to rules that Portchie prescribed.

The Portchie genesis collection

Own Portchie's first ever generative canvas art, by being a proud minter of his genesis collection.

Generating Unique Canvas Art

By means of algorithmic random composition, each mint will add the element of chance to birth unique moments, making up this groundbreaking collection of generative canvas art NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain using the ERC-1155 standard. The amount of variations makes it practically impossible for 2 NFT's to be the same.

The Landscape
Variations : 1000

The landscape fills up the NFT canvas and consists of sky, hills and flower beds. Generating the NFT selects a random combination of elements to generate a perfectly unique scene.

The Trees
Variations : 18225

Beautiful trees can be seen on the horizon of each canvas. The amount of trees, their type and location are randomised to add to your NFT's unique setting.

The Flowers
Variations : 4608

Portchie paintings are known for its colourful flowers, and arguably serves as one of the main identifiers. Each NFT is generated with a random selection of flowers that fill up the riverbank.

The Chickens
Variations : 1024

Hens and roosters are randomly selected, facing different directions and placed at different locations next to the riverbank. The more of them, the greater the rarity. Iconically, roosters can also be found on the back of some of the bicycles, and there's one particular rooster named Ernie that is super rare.

The Cyclists
Variations : 180 billion

The cyclists offer the largest selection of variability. The algorithm selects the amount of cyclists, the identity of each cyclists, their location, their bicycles, their hair and their outfits making it close to impossible for 2 NFT's in the collection to feature the same cyclist.
