Following the massive excitement of Yusuke Hanai’s first NFT collection released in February 2022, digital and physical collectables platform, FWENCLUB, launches Spanish artist Joan Cornellà’s first NFT collection, “MOAR by Joan Cornellà”. Official website (https://joancornella.fwenclub.com/) went live on 7 March with a mini clicking game for FWENs from different parts of the globe to build the metaverse together by one click. The phenomenon is taking the world by storm and hits
over 60 million clicks in a week.
Building the satire world from social media to metaverse
The strange and surreal journey of Joan Cornellà began in social media years ago and continues to poke fun at the world in another sphere of the digital space, where fans can take part in a survivor adventure in the metaverse. It is a story of a mansion in the metaverse called “MOAR” – an intentional misspelling of “more”, used online as a humorous demand — where 5,555 creatures with their souls minted with the ERC721 blockchain as NFTs. While the world is in lockdown due to the invasion of aliens, guests staying at the MOAR, including humans, zombies and cyborgs, live peacefully together. MOAR is a rather unusual mansion where one will find shops, games and virtual exhibitions, to be launched in November, 2022.
Cornellà’s first-ever NFT project drops in Apr 2022 with public sale in Dutch Auction Taking all on a strange journey in the metaverse
With a social following of more than eight million amassed over the years, Cornellà is now diving into an emerging art form where fans can continue to show support for his incredibly entertaining and thought-provoking creations.
Digital art has long been undervalued in large part because it is so freely available. The introduction of NFTs has been shaking up the art world, adding the crucial ingredients of authenticity and scarcity to show the value of digital art. The movement is an effort to economically legitimize artists’ talent and creative process. It is quickly becoming one of the most valuable art forms of our time.
Cornellà is highly-regarded on the international stage. His works have graced the art
scenes from worldwide and have been offered at auctions multiple times. The record price for Cornellà at auction is $129,862 USD for Untitled #1, sold at Phillips Hong Kong in 2021. Early this year, he released a solo museum exhibition in Shanghai organized by AllRightsReserved. Having worked on digital art for years, Cornellà is now turning a new page in the virtual world.
The 5,555 unique avatars including 50 legendary artworks will drop in April 2022, split between the whitelists, public sale in dutch auction and the team. Each is uniquely hand-drawn by Cornellà using over 200 unique attributes. The creatures are in Cornellà’s iconic male and female character.

“I started by making silent comics to experiment on social media, which has been
instrumental to show my work to a wide audience. Most people know me through the internet, so I owe a lot to this medium. By trying different things, I can express myself through my works in different mediums. It’s always good to try new things and here comes my first-ever NFT collection.
