Let’s face it: The NFT space moves really fast. Considering how quickly things can change in the metaverse, a week in NFTs might as well be a month IRL.
Don’t get us wrong — the more people onboarded into the space, the merrier. But because of the constant influx of great art and ideas, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news, launches, and general happenings.
Well, you can put the days of endless Twitter and Discord scrolling behind you as we pull together a weekly list of upcoming NFT drops you definitely don’t want to miss. Here’s what to look out for this week.

What: Exhibit of limited editions
When: May 23 @ 5 p.m. ET
Why: Nordic Spring, curated by Animus, is an exhibit that seeks to celebrate the beauty of spring through the lenses of four acclaimed Scandinavian artists. The collection features limited edition works from Kristian Levin (noCreative), Arne Spangereid, Maria Fynsk Norup, and Kesja Tabaczuk.
Who: Andre Oshea
What: 113 evolving NFTs
When: May 24 at 2 p.m. ET
Why: Index Grids, from Andre Oshea, is a limited edition project meant to explore the “symbiotic, sometimes uneasy, and ultimately inextricably-linked relationship between the artwork, the artist, and the art market.” Each of the 113 tokens in the collection will evolve between four phases each time the token is transferred to a new owner.
What: Open edition
When: May 24 at 4 p.m. ET
Why: Following a sold-out Solana collection, the audiovisual experience and multimedia franchise known as Kids Of The Apocalypse (KOTA) is gearing up for another unique drop. This time, KOTA will release a collaborative open edition alongside Icona Pop and Reo Cragun, marking Icona Pop’s first foray into the Web3 music space.
What: 9,000 PFP NFTs
When: May 25, time TBA via Figuregot Twitter
Why: Formed in the childhood bedroom of creator Jess Wiseman and her brother Callum over a decade ago, Figuregot is a dynamic project said to be “inspired by the childlike joy of trading cards and collectibles.” The team (consisting of co-founders Ali, Winny, and the Wiseman siblings) devised a “reverse roadmap” concept to work on building partnerships and products before taking its digital collectible to mint. Figuregot will be giving each holder the opportunity to redeem a FigureGot Figurine for free. The brand’s goal is to use its IP to innovate in the fashion, streetwear, and tech spaces.
Who: Taylor Might
What: Open edition
When: May 25 @ 3 p.m. ET
Why: Open Headition is an “infinite generative open edition” created by Taylor Might. Best known as the creator of Dippies and Fethers, this latest from Might takes inspiration from mushrooms — specifically, how they form colonies that are connected in a similar fashion to the human nervous system.
CREDIT: SARAH SCRIPT
Who: Sarah Script
What: Generative open edition
When: May 26 @ 1:30 p.m. ET
Why: From Sarah Script — Web3’s most prominent calligrapher — comes Holy Script: a celebration of the power of the written word. The project consists of a vast array of literary NFTs, with each token featuring a word calligraphed by hand with ink on paper. The project is meant to imply that words themselves are sacred because they have meaning to the reader.
