Performance Artist Known for Eating $120K Art Basel Banana Is Doing NFTs With Dole

The performance artist known for eating (not creating) that $120,000 banana duct-taped to an art-gallery wall is trying to shoehorn himself into a new arena: non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Food giant Dole is partnering with David Datuna on a five-part NFT series dubbed “Taking a Bite Out of Hunger” that will be marketed by the fintech company Zytara and go on sale May 6 via the NFT marketplace Rarible. Proceeds from the auction will go to charity.

It’s the latest episode in a craze that continues to veer into the bizarre.
