Women-led initiative FilipinasNFT recently released its second collection called “Walang Katulad” on the newly launched non-fungible token (NFT) platform, Mintoo, of crypto exchange Philippine Digital Assets Exchange (PDAX). The collection features 10 female artists and their works that celebrate “female creativity and their unique identities and stories.”
“The new collection of Filipinas NFT: Walang Katulad is a beautiful representation of women going beyond the boundaries set by the world upon us. Each of the artists have given so much of their heart and talent into their pieces, and I find that so inspiring! I am happy that web3 platforms continue to champion and support our women and become an avenue for them to thrive in this space,” said Khat De Guzman, co-founder of Filipinas NFT.
The collection was released in late March, which is also in line with the celebration of Women’s Month. According to FilipinasNFT, 10% of the collection’s sales will go to their chosen charity, I Support The Girls Manila.
The “Walang Katulad” Collection also presents the works of Aya Abad, Agatha Art, Mariel Cruz, Jadie Lara, Julianne Ng, Meemoo, Taiga, Xiao, and Evie Yokai.
Aya Abad is a visual artist focusing on art styles such as multiple perspectives, monochrome, and minimalism. The artist’s creations center around using a single color to illustrate ordinary settings that frequently showcase several viewpoints of felines in human-like situations and settings.
She released two artworks in the collection called “I’m Alone But I’m Not Afraid” and “I Cry But I’m Strong,” both are valued at 30,000 PHPT.
Aside from the digital art, buyers will also receive a 12×12-inch painting of the NFT. The shipping and handling fees will be shouldered by the asset owner.
Agatha Art‘s art style mostly features female portraits in semi-realism. She prominently showcases the delicate anatomy of women, drawing attention to their unique style, which she highlights in her own illustrated card collection, The Archetype Playing Cards.
For the collection, she minted two digital portraits of women titled “On A Typical Day, Women.” One of which is already sold for 8,000 PHPT—the other is still available as of writing. Upon purchase, holders will also receive an animated version of this NFT.
Mariel Cruz’s art mostly depicts illustrations of cats in a contemporary folk art style on a variety of media including acrylic works such as paintings, murals, and digital and textile works. She uses the pen name “Mimaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw.”
In the “Walang Katulad” Collection, she released three NFTs called “New Doors,” “Purrfection,” and “Kind World.” Each cost 8,000 PHPT.

Julianne Ng is a visual artist that usually involves systematic structures that include industrial elements, bold colors, refined lines, and defined geometric patterns in her works.
Although she usually does paintings, she created a physical sculpture called “Not Everything Sugar is Sweet,” which is a cupcake-like structure with human fingers on top for her “Walang Katulad” entry. According to Ng, the “work itself in a form of dessert entices you to touch what is not allowed without consent.”
It is currently sold for 20,000 PHPT. The buyer for her NFT will also receive the actual set.
