The JOYWORLD Portal series is a collection of explorative artworks meticulously crafted by JOY that can be found across the vast and boundless metaverse, beckoning new collectors into our JOYous realm of JOYWORLD. With the purpose of welcoming new collectors, the portals are being intentionally dispersed across the entire metaverse, transcending the confines of any specific chain, be it Ethereum, Flow, Bitcoin, or beyond.
Each artwork within the JOYWORLD Portal series acts as a glimpse into a dimension that exists between dimensions, akin to receiving a postcard from an alternate reality or viewing a vlog from another instance in time. These artworks are created to celebrate how big, great, wildly, wonderful, and JOYful every fleeting moment in your life can be.
JOYWORLD is everywhere, all the time. You might encounter a portal while walking your dog, grabbing a coffee at your favorite cafe or while immersing yourself at an art show in New York. Capture the portal and be transported to the JOYfullest realm in the metaverse – JOYWORLD.
