For years, the art industry has been increasingly connected to the digital world, from creating digital art to tokenizing physical artwork. The art has been expanding throughout the crypto/blockchain industry, and it is now poised to take the next big step in this field thanks to just one new project — ArtMeta.
What is ArtMeta?
ArtMeta is a brand new metaverse project that aims to revolutionize the way art is presented and purchased in the digital world. It is developing a premium, high-quality Metaverse that will connect leading artists and galleries with art collectors.
It will allow galleries to easily showcase the work of their artists in digital plots that they will rent from ArtMeta, while collectors around the world will be able to access these exhibitions at any time, view the art of established and new artists, and support those whose creations appeal to them the most.
As everything is purely digital, all artworks will be available as NFTs, and users can purchase them at any time and instantly become their owners. And, since everything is recorded on blockchains through the use of smart contracts, their ownership will never be in question, as long as they don’t sell the unique NFT that matches the artwork in question.
What does the world of ArtMeta look like?
As a metaverse project, ArtMeta is a pioneer in this new emerging trend. His digital art galleries will be based on an island in a hyperrealistic, imaginary and mystical city. The city itself was originally designed over 11 years ago by a well-known painter, Jonathan Delachaux, and made in collaboration with Romain Donnot, a digital/visual effects artist and DI specialist. Delachaux also consulted experts in geology, biology, astrology and other fields to ensure that all details and elements of the island are in harmony with nature.
The project worked with this idea, eventually creating its own version, which is a beautifully rendered digital world created for top-notch international art. In it, artists and galleries can present their works in an unprecedented environment and sell both physical but symbolic art, or purely digital pieces, such as NFTs. The project is also led by Roger Haas, a prominent voice in the contemporary art world, as CEO. Haas is one of the founders of a world-class gallery and he also led a museum foundation in Switzerland.
Solve problems for artists, collectors and art galleries
More than that, ArtMeta also solves the problems that trouble the three groups it aims to connect – artists, galleries and collectors. For artists, knowing how to do NFTs is a major obstacle to entering the digital space on their own. It requires technical knowledge or hiring someone who has it to do it. ArtMeta will allow artists to easily digitize their work, create NFTs, and put their digital works up for sale.
It also solves the problems that galleries face, such as giving them access to the growing digital art market, by allowing them to rent space and land, and then offer them to artists wishing to exhibit their creations. And, finally, it’s also a great solution for collectors around the world, giving them the opportunity to see the art of new and established artists, all in one place.
The metaverse is coming, and the art industry is in a perfect position to take advantage of it. Many of its members are already well versed in utilizing the benefits of blockchain thanks to the explosion of the NFT industry this year. The project was already launched on TrustSwap on December 18. It had a goal of raising $750,000, but it ended up being oversubscribed by 1,045%, so the total commitment amount ended up being $7.8 million. After that, he also held an IDO Polkastarter on January 27, where the goal was to raise $500,000, and once again garnered massive interest – over 15,000 whitelisted apps.
With the technology behind the scanning tools that ArtMeta provides to the fine art community, it won’t be a huge leap for galleries and artists to join. The benefits of being able to offer their creations to a global audience will mean that many will be exposed like never before.
