Habytat, a photorealistic metaverse platform and privacy-first social network that’s set to release in early spring has announced it will be offering complimentary virtual and personalised gallery spaces to 200 artists.
This will empower artists to display and sell their work at no cost to art lovers across the globe. The gallery spaces will allow the art community the ability to access art installations in locations that would otherwise be limited from physically visiting.
Gianfranco Lopane, President of SmarterVerse Inc commented, “By offering gallery space and technical support to artists at no cost, we’re able to fulfil an important part of our mission to democratise the metaverse. By bringing a diverse group of artists into the SmarterVerse while making the best of contemporary art accessible to a global audience. We’re excited to unlock new business opportunities for talented creators and put value into our metaverse in the form of high-quality, creative content ahead of our upcoming launch.”
Bringing art to the metaverse
The spaces include comprehensive support from Habytat’s on-call digital transformation team. They will provide all of the technical and backend design work to digitise an artists existing physical art and gallery. This will create a seamless, effortless opportunity to cement their presence within the metaverse.
Habytat’s galleries will live within the platform’s Geniuz City which is modelled after Miami and is designed to resemble the Wynwood arts district which is known for its impressive galleries, open-air installations and remarkable art. The galleries will also serve as an extension of the artists’ existing online presence and will integrate their current online websites.
In addition, artists can also list their artwork for sale using the Habytat virtual marketplace. The artists’ selection process will prioritise diversity, creativity and social awareness, allowing the Habytat team to curate 200 artists for its gallery spaces.
