Jim Wheat said: “It’s so exciting to be able to release my artwork as NFTs for the first time with Terra Virtua. My artwork is all about expressing myself and being able to animate certain elements really helps bring my creations to life. I’m hoping that through NFTs, art becomes more accessible for all and I’m fascinated to see what the future holds for the industry!”
Jen Naiff, Head of Marketing and Digital Growth at Terra Virtua said: “We’re thrilled to showcase not only the ‘Trump series’ but Jim Wheat’s entire new collection. Jim’s whole ethos is about creating art for disruptive times and those times are happening now as NFTs continue to disrupt the way we create, consume and think about art.”

Notes to the editor
About Jim Wheat
Artist Jim Wheat founded dollarsandart in 2011 initially as an outlet for expression during a rather testing and challenging time.
The Dollarsandart project started when Wheat began to collect $1 bills he had signed by celebrities he collaborated with and got to meet. Among the big names he has met are Donald Trump, “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort, pro boxer David “The Hayemaker” Haye, and horse racing legend AP McCoy.
Wheat’s art pieces always include $1 bills and every day materials sought to challenge our values and what money really means to us.
