The MEME Team is thrilled to welcome this next artist to the $MEME Artist Series. In Drop 7, we’re featuring the art of Jonathan Wolfe.

⏰ $MEME x JW Collab Dropping Tuesday December 22, 2020
Jonathan Wolfe has created 4 new exclusive NFTs in the $MEME Artist Series.
Three pieces will go into a pool where you can stake $MEME. Deposit any amount up to 5 tokens and you’ll earn points where can mint a brand-new, exclusive MEME x JW NFT.
Also, one final piece is up for auction. 80% will go to the artist, 10% to the MEME dev fund, and 10% to charity (tba).
Note: Like previous artist drops, to ensure support for the artists, we have enabled minting fees to some of the items in the staking pool. Minting fees are denominated in ETH and taken at time of NFT minting.
$MEME Artist Series 7
About the artist:
I’m a Canadian artist based in Calgary, Alberta. I’ve been making art since I could remember, primarily I’m a painter but recently I’ve been really interested in blending digital and physical art together. The main focus of my work lately has been taking everyday and familiar objects, places, or symbols and turning them into something new, hopefully making you see the day-to-day a little different.
Starting Tuesday, $MEME holders can begin to stake and start mining these rare NFTs. The Jonathan Wolfe pool is a brand new pool. No LP tokens are needed.
Meet the Artist
Jordan Lyall caught up with Jonathan to ask what attracted him to a collaboration with $MEME:
Jordan: What first got you into NFT art?
Jonathan: Fewocious got me into NFT art! I know a ton of people that got into NFT’s just from them. It’s super exciting we happen to have drops so close to each other, without them I for sure wouldn’t have got involved in this space so soon.
Jordan: How did you initially hear about $MEME?
Jonathan: I was following Sven Eberwein on instagram and saw their meme collab and that got me interested.
Jordan: What do you find interesting about what the $MEME project is doing?
Jonathan: I really appreciate that it’s introducing people to NFT’s and allows collectors with all kinds of budgets to get into buying digital art. I actually had some old friends from school interested in grabbing some editions and they aren’t even that big into NFT’s/Crypto, that really shows the power of the pineapple.
Jordan: What else excites you about NFTs and/or DeFi?
Jonathan: I’m so happy it’s giving another route for artists to monetize their work and be able to do this full time.
I’ve also been having a lot of fun exploring the VR side of NFT’s.
Jordan: Where will NFT art be in 3 years?
Jonathan: Seeing that Beeple drop the other day really solidified NFT art as something that’s here to stay in my opinion, I have no idea where it’ll be but this seems like it’s just the start!
Jordan: What’s next for you as a digital artist?
Jonathan: I want to go even further into the digital side of art, I always saw myself as just a painter but getting into digital art this year really showed me there are so many ways to make work. I want to get more involved with 3D software, VR, and animation.
