Emily Yang, aka Pplpleasr

NFT artist Emily Yang, aka Pplpleasr

Article

Emily Yang, who goes by her pseudonym plpleasr, is one of the world’s major NFT artists and a member of the influential PleasrDAO, a collective of DeFi leaders, early NFT collectors and digital artists.

Yang describes herself as a "multidisciplinary artist with a focus on web3, NFTs, crypto, DAOs, and philanthropy".

Along with Beeple, who sold an NFT at auction last year for $69 million, pplpleasr has become the face of the crypto art world. Her bright, whimsical creations have appeared on the cover of Fortune and become sought-after collectibles, while pplpleasr herself appears on the cover of this month's Vogue Taiwan.

Pplpleasr recently joined Decrypt's gm podcast to describe her path to becoming an NFT artist, and how she finds inspiration from the colorful (and sometime crazy) crypto community—a process she describes as "idea sex."

...

Pplpleasr got her first big break after designing an animated ad for the DeFi platform Uniswap; an NFT of the ad was then snapped up by collectors for more than half a million dollars. For her, the boundaries between art, culture and marketing and fluid—much as they were for pop artists like Andy Warhol.
