The collaboration between tech leaders ARize and famed Maltese artist Mark Mallia is finally being released to the public this quarter and it is causing quite a buzz within tech and art circles with its innovative nature.
The 3D, AR and VR specialists teamed up with the sometimes-controversial artist to create a unique, stand-alone Metaverse gallery that will transport art lovers everywhere into a whole new world, and give a brand-new way to own and appreciate art.
It is a bold move for the company to work with a renowned artist like Mark Mallia. The Maltese native is a self-taught artist known as a maverick of the art world and has been described as bringing “aggressive energy to his diverse spectrum of pieces”.
This is ARize’s first NFT collection and it allows Mark and a small group of other artists handpicked by the man himself, to display their artworks within the virtual gallery for people to see. The gallery will be made up of two rooms, one featuring pieces of art from the artists and another featuring exclusive premium works that they have designed.
Speaking about the two galleries, Mallia himself had this to say:
“The first would feature 40 pieces of affordable art. Whereas the other would have 21 pieces of exclusive art at any given time. With respect to the exclusive art, I’ll be teaming up with Etienne Farrell to deliver a ‘steampunk’ theme.”
Anybody that purchases a piece of the art directly through the Metaverse gallery will receive a physical copy of the piece as well as a 1/1 digital version as an NFT, bringing the art to the real world alongside the virtual one.
Patrons can gain access to the gallery by purchasing the newly launched ARZ tokens from PancakeSwap, MEXC or BitMart.
