Remo, an award-winning artist who has a background in fine art, graffiti, design, illustration, film, animation and sound, just sold one of his NFTs for 5.2 $MEME ($13,520) after a heated bidding war. The artwork is a 1 out of 1 original with an ironic title called ‘Don’t Buy Into the Crypto Age, Don’t Drop MEME.’ Although in the final moments the top bid was 1.01 $MEME, the price quickly escalated to 5.2 $MEME as buyers outbid one another in a last-minute rush to secure ownership of Remo’s artwork.
Remo’s unique style is influenced by punk and pop culture, which he mixes with cutting-edge technology and old school techniques. He is also well-known for being the first to paint a graffiti QR code, and has worked with major brands such as MTV, VH1, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.
