Hello guys, so today we have an exciting new project to take a look at. Universe by Barnabe is a clean pop-art-inspired project.
A collection of 4444 collectibles on the Ethereum blockchain with hand-drawn traits, created by a world renowned artist. This project is an art/pfp project so does not offer an abundance of utility but on the flipside, the project does have a few surprises up their sleeves.

Who is behind the project?

Pierre-Emmanuel Rome aka Barnabe

has exhibited his artwork in several galleries and exhibitions across the globe from Singapore (Yang Gallery) to Dubai & Abidjan (ArtTime Gallery) and many more locations.

Barnabe entered the art world from his contributions to the illicit street-art scene. He is well known for his striking hard lines and solid colours which convey a modern and sometimes deconstructed pop-art vibe.

Barnabe has created one project previously – Break.

You can check out more information on his Wikipedia page.

Team Members

The team is very tight knit and lean. There are only two team members and then two agencies working alongside Barnabe. Both PINKOG & Mr. BINARY are undoxxed.

PINKOG.ETH – Head Collab Advisor
Mr. BINARY – Project Manager
MEDIACE AGENCY – Influence Marketing
NONE AGENCY – Web Design

Road Map

The roadmap consists of 3 stages –


24 hours after the mint has begun all Barnabes will be revealed.

Merch Store

The team plans to sell a range of Barnabe-themed merchandise.

Community DAO + NFT Community Vault

The project is going to feature an additional season – what this will bring is anybody’s guess, but holders will have direct input into the future of the universe.


The details on this aspect are vague, but it seems like the team would like to provide assistance to other upcoming NFT projects – more details are to come.


  • Twitter – 79.6k followers | Joined December 2021 – the first tweet is in April with no deletion. Likely a purpose-made account for the project.
  • Discord – 18.3k members | 4k online – I have been unable to access their discord for the last few hours. It seems they have verification and also a bot to verify – however this bot seems to be faulty as it is not allowing me entry on several devices at different times. There don’t appear to be any further bots.
  • Instagram – 10.9k | There are a lot of posts on Instagram featuring Barnabes work.

Smart Contract

The smart contract is not yet publicly available.

Price & Mint Date

The suspected mint date is the 28th of July 2022. This is not confirmed but it is what has been found from some other sources.
The mint price is rumoured to be 0.1 ETH. Once again, this is unconfirmed but has been reported by several sources.


I am a fan of the style of this project. The deconstructed pop style comes across perfectly. It’s also coming from an artist that first established himself outside of and well before the NFT ecosystem existed – it’s always good to see projects from these types of artists, they are usually in the project for more than the money.
The project also has a large community that is fairly active and a good ratio of online to total discord members – all very positive signs.
My only point of contention is their Discord – I have been unable to access it for the last few hours so obviously, this could be a problem for prospective investors that would like to learn more about the project.
Given the right circumstances, I believe that Universe by Barnabe could do well very well. In the current climate of free mint projects, it will be interesting to see what happens.
