"American Dream Life" by artist Terrell Jones.


Terrell Jones, a digital artist hailing from the heart of Ann Arbor, Michigan has become a prominent figure in the ever-evolving landscape of digital art. His journey, marked by early inspiration and a relentless drive, has led to the creation of a distinctive artistic style he aptly christened "Pop-Precisionism." Influenced by cartoons, manga, and his older brother, as a child, Terrell began to draw on the walls of the Jones family home. Unlike most, his parents saw a budding talent.


Less than two years ago, Jones found himself laboring long hours in a FedEx warehouse. During the evenings and weekends, he devoted himself to the pursuit of his artistic vision, taking commissions to make ends meet. That all changed in November 2022, a watershed moment in Terrell's NFT career. During this pivotal month, Terrell achieved multiple extraordinary feats: Terrell's creations "Mission Mojave" and "Business Calls" shattered records with their unprecedented 1-of-1 sales, leaving the art world in awe. Then, his artwork "Turbo" achieved a remarkable secondary sale, underscoring the demand for his work. In a testament to his growing following, Terrell conducted a 48-hour open edition sale of "Born 2 Die." The result was nothing short of phenomenal, with 1,139 editions sold at 0.15 ETH apiece, totaling an impressive 171 ETH. Terrell Jones was fast becoming a legend in the NFT art world.


Terrell's artistic style, Pop-Precisionism, is a tapestry woven from a multitude of influences. Drawing inspiration from the world of film, a deep well of nostalgia, the ever-shifting tides of fashion, and moments of introspection, his work reflects a rich array of experiences. Inspired by artist Grant Yun and his "Neo-Precisionism" movement, combining elements of city pop aesthetics, as seen in the works of Hiroshi Nagai, and the pop art influences of Warhol, David Hockney, and Ed Hopper, Terrell aimed to create a phrase that encapsulated this blend of inspirations. During a serendipitous flight, the term "Pop-Precisionism" materialized in his mind.


Jones continues to make waves and redefine the boundaries of digital art. His work, “American Dream Life” was collected by prolific NFT collector Batsoupyum and will be on display in his private metaverse gallery during a special fireside chat featuring his collection.
