There isn't a certain number of likes, or follows, that will make someone a Neenstar. Professional interaction helps in the Neen world. These interactions can help a Neenster gain privileges and rights that not just anyone can get. Most Neensters are interested in breaking through social norms and constructs. They do not want to be typecast to one type of art. If one Neenstar sees another Neenster as a star, then that person is automatically a Neenstar.
Two of the top Neenstars are Rafael Rozendaal and Mai Ueda.
While Neensters are not concerned with media hype, they do enjoy being featured in the press. Rafael has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, Dazed and Confused, and Vogue, just to name a few. He is also wanted at well-known institutions and has lectured at Yale in New Haven, NYU in New York, Ecole des Bauex Arts in Paris, and Vivid in Sydney. This year, he has several shows scheduled. Trouble in Paradise will display in Kunsthal, Rotterdam. Out of Office will display at the Museum Singer Laren in The Netherlands. Don't do too much will display in a solo show at the Postmasters Gallery in New York. His work is also available on Instagram and Twitter.
Mai wants to send messages to the public through her art. She wants to encourage people to feel; to feel something, anything. She wants them to feel what is real to them, not what someone else tells them they should feel. Her artistic interests cross over many internet platforms, as well as, drawing, poetry, and performing. She has stated numerous times that she is most at home with non material mediums. In 2012, she became Zen and brought the tradition of the Tea Ceremony back into her life. It has since become the core of who she is and the core of what she creates. The Tea Ceremony is an opportunity for people to come together and share information and feelings. It creates a mindfulness and promotes the freedom to sit back and enjoy the moment you are in.
