Talk about 'mint' condition. The Red Bull Doodle Art NFT collection mentored by Burnt Toast combines the artistic vision of Canadian artist Scott Martin, better known as Burnt Toast, with the doodling designs of the fast-rising talents who were national winners in Red Bull Doodle Art 2023.
The 61 collaborative works were designed specifically with the NFT format in mind – created through the process called minting – and were live at the Nifty Gateway online marketplace for a limited time during the World Final, with all proceeds from the NFT purchases going directly to the respective participants.

Whenever Burnt Toast mints new work, the art world pays attention. His creations are collected by celebrities and other art lovers, and when he launched his Doodles collection of 10,000 NFTs in 2021, it sold out in minutes. Given that the artist is passionate about creating inclusive artistic communities, it's no surprise that he was keen to collaborate with the Red Bull Doodle Art participants and was additionally one of the judges to determine the 2023 winner in Amsterdam.
"When I was told about this, I lunged at the opportunity," said Burnt Toast, explaining that he saw the partnership not only as a way to give back but also as a chance to take inspiration himself by experiencing the artistic influences of cultures from around the world.
Burnt Toast is a Canadian-based illustrator, designer, muralist, and the artist behind Doodles NFT project.

The global Red Bull Doodle Art competition invites students and creatives to let their minds wander and express themselves in imaginative doodles. All that's needed to enter is pen and paper, and in the 2023 edition, over 120,000 participants worldwide submitted their best doodles. From those entries, expert local judges determined a single national winner in 62 countries.
For each of these winners, collaborating with Burnt Toast was part of their World Final preparations. Every national winner chose one of five monochromatic designs provided by the Canadian artist to incorporate within their own doodling, creating a new piece for display in the event's public gallery in Amsterdam.
It’s there that the judging panel – which also included British artist Mr Doodle (Sam Cox), free running athlete Noa Diorgina of the Netherlands, 2017 Red Bull Doodle Art winner Ayaka Toyomasu of Japan and Dutch entrepreneur and digital creator Anna Nooshin – chose the global winner, based on the criteria of creativity, artistic skill and the way the doodle conveyed a sense of loving life. That winning piece, selected live at the event, features Burnt Toast’s signature pastel colour and lives on permanently as the Red Bull Doodle Art 2023 winner.
Direct from the World Final gallery, the 61 collaborative NFT doodles make up the Red Bull Doodle Art NFT collection mentored by Burnt Toast, which was available globally for an open-edition mint on the Red Bull Doodle Art Collection mentored by Burnt Toast | Collection | Nifty Gateway.
