Multidisciplinary artist known for her frenzied followers enters web3 with a PFP collection emphasizing the capabilities of art and providing tangible value for her fans.
The web3 space is rapidly expanding, but true growth comes from high-caliber work and diversity among participants. That is exactly what Ilse Valfré and her company Valfré are primed to do, as they take a confident leap into their newest world Valfrélandia with her legion of over 1 million followers.
As a young woman growing up in Tijuana, Valfré built her practice and eventual career as an artist at the beginning of the web2 movement on Tumblr where she began sharing her drawings. Upon building a following, she brought art into the online space long before the mainstream recognition of digital art, and monetized it with an empire of lifestyle products including clothing, ceramics, prints, and more, always adding value for her fanbase along the way.
Over the years, Valfré has proved time and again that her work resonates well beyond a glance. Having used her characters to create a successful lifestyle brand including clothing, ceramics, prints, and more, she has built an empire of fiercely loyal fans who feel deeply connected to her powerful feminine characters. As a Mexican woman artist, her work speaks to millions of young women searching for representation and a strong voice, making her work incredibly relatable. Now, as she takes the leap into the world of NFTs, she is once again prioritizing her ever-growing fanbase.
Following the great success of her first NFT drop on Nifty Gateway,“I Love Lucy,” she has been working around the clock and is excited to bring VALFRÉLANDIA to life. VALFRÉLANDIA is a collection of 10,000 unique NFTs that feature 15 of Valfré’s signature character types with over 500 hand-drawn traits, making the possibilities vast and ensuring rarities within the collection.

The sky’s the limit with music, art, and culture innovations on their way!
