If you’re here and have no idea what you’ve stumbled into, then welcome to the insane and wonderful world of Fake Rares. This may have started as a joke, but it has evolved into so much more. Whether you’re an artist or a collector, feel free to poke around the site. Most of the action happens in our telegram though, so come say hi.
Progressive Memetics and (Fake) BTC Miami
The exhibition “Progressive Memetics” curated by Pepenardo and Dennis Koch garnered immense success and overwhelming praise from attendees and enthusiasts alike.
People were captivated by the diverse range of artists showcased at this highly anticipated event, which boasted works by renowned artists Fake Scrilla, T Wade, Carsonated, NAPLES, NiliCoins, Robness, Pepenardo, Koch, and many others. The Fake Rare booth, an exclusive addition to the main exhibition, featured physical works by JB and Luis Simo as pepe invaded BTC23.
One of the highlights was the interactive display developed by Robot Loves Coffee. This installation allowed for active community participation, fostering a sense of engagement among collectors and artists. Additionally, artist LOVEBEING, crafted a digital mecca showcasing the entirety of the Fake Rare collection on 6 large MetaSill screens.
The show stopper, a monolithic Picasso-inspired painting titled “PEPERNICA” by Luis Simo, was purchased in a stunning sale for 1.6 BTC.
PEPE IS ART and FROGS > FIAT NYC
NYC will never be the same. Another sell out. Three straight years of Pepe invading the corner of 72 Warren and 80 Broadway in the heart of TriBeCa. Pepe Is Art featured Fake Rares, Rare Pepes, Pepes on Ordinals, and saw a Pepenardo FAKESCIENCE original fetch over 4 BTC! The Fake Rare gallery became a hub for the finest collectors and artists, drawing in Pepe enthusiasts from the larger NFT community all week long. Each piece displayed was a unique, meticulously handcrafted work of art, from exquisite oil paintings to sculptures and everything in between. LOVEBEING blew our minds with a live presentation of a growing and expanding work that is a testament to artistic ingenuity. Let’s not forget about Jules, whose interactive live glitch set-up allowed everyone to step into the world of experimentation.
