~MEMEs By Santiago Corredor Vergara

Memes have taken on unprecedented cultural significance in the last two decades, as social media has become a ubiquitous means of communication. The significance of these seemingly insignificant images goes far beyond their obvious capacity to visually transmit a joke–memes move mountains; they’ve swayed elections after all. More importantly, it is their capacity to foster community among people invested and interested in niche topics.

The memes Santiago creates are invested in contemporary art, theory, and highlight the traditional art world’s contradictions. These memes are a thoughtful testament to a deep appreciation for the world of art. By bringing the memes on chain, it creates a space for these pieces to exist as a collectible art and elevates them as a legitimate art form. Santiago is releasing his first NFTs as a series of memes originally posted on @servingthepeople. This series reimagines the confines of what is considered art and paves the way for meme accounts and creators to retain ownership of their work.

A portion of the proceeds from the secondary sale will be donated to the Serving the People Foundation. Keep an eye out for his series set to launch this May.

Santiago, also known as @pl0xi_the_arsonist, is a 25 year old painter, who spends his time between New York City and Bogotá. He graduated from The Cooper Union in 2018 and is currently pursuing a masters in philosophy at the University of Salamanca. Santiago has been creating memes for Serving the People’s Instagram for the past year. His contribution has helped cultivate and onboard an amazing audience to @servingthepeople’s community.
