Memes are 100% art.
The word meme was initially created by Biologist, Richard Dawkins. He defined the word meme as ‘to imitate’.
In 1993, Mike Godwin brought up the idea of internet memes.
The first meme I saw a meme looked like this:
Troll face memes were very popular about 10 years ago, I think they still are.
Anyways, I believe that memes are an expression of art, they can be used to self express one’s thought. Others believe that memes are not art, they see art as paintings, drawings, etc.
