We are different from the current new digital art-focused companies for the following reason; they are primarily technology-first companies who are leveraging and exploiting the power of art; we are an art-first company leveraging and exploiting the power of technology.
We exist to bridge the current gap that exists between the traditional art world and the rapidly emerging new "metaverse" driven by digital art and the blockchain. It is our belief that both worlds can exist without compromise and have created a platform that is focused on helping traditional artists and collectors take advantage of the new possibilities and opportunities that the new digital art world has created.
We focus on established and traditional artists which allows us to participate in both the existing art world infrastructure as well as the new emerging world of digital art.
We believe strongly in supporting artists with experience, a mastery of their craft, and a definable narrative behind their art. We also believe in the indisputable power of tangible, physical art while understanding that the emerging “metaverse” allows us to extend the experience and bring art to life in a new and exciting way.
