Jay Chou rethinks charity & art in the metaverse

Recently, Chou has been gaining recognition in the field of art thanks to the acclaim that his artwork has received from well-known collectors

In 2021, he made a profit of 10.7 million dollars on the sale of his white-glove collection at Sotheby’s. This time around, Chou is interested in working with PSG to develop a brand new method of creating metaverse art.

PSG anticipates that their presence in Asia will grow as a result of their association with the Mandopop icon. Chou is also broadening his audience in Europe and may soon make an announcement about performing at Parc des Princes, the home stadium of Paris Saint-Germain. If this happens, it will be the first time that a Mandarin artist has ever given a concert at the venue.

Following in the footsteps of Chou’s massive businesses are his charitable activities. Over the course of the past ten years, he has made it his mission to assist youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds. This time, Chou is working in conjunction with PSG to launch a campaign for the PSG Endowment Fund, which aims to generate both awareness and financial support for disadvantaged youngsters.
