Decentraland users can see works by José Delbo, an artist collaborating with Marvel and DC, at the MakersPlace gallery. DC Comics Artist has launched the VR exhibition, which is only available on the Decentraland platform.
DC Comics focuses on blockchain
José Delbo, a comic book artist who has drawn for both DC and Marvel, opened yesterday his week-long exhibition on the virtual reality world of Decentraland, a project based on Ethereum technology.
The artist, who started his career at the age of 16, is known for drawing Wonder Woman for DC Comics and Transformers for Marvel. Now he has published a series of digital images in the VR world for viewing and sale in the MakersPlace gallery. All works were assigned a digital proof of ownership registered using blockchain technology.
Cointelegraph visited the gallery immediately yesterday, as soon as the project was launched. As the portal adds, anyone can enter “Virtual environment with one click”.
“Although the crowds were few, many Internet users were stunned by the artist’s works, listening to his own words describing the works. The virtual gallery is not very big, so visitors can see the entire exhibition in a short time “
– adds a clearly intrigued journalist from Turner Wright.
Among the works “The most up-to-date artwork on display was a drawing of Superman hitting the coronavirus in a mask.” It is “The Last Son of Krypton Fights for Humanity.” In other works you can see other cult characters from this universe, such as Batman or Wonder Woman.
Art moves to the digital world
As many galleries and exhibitions around the world are still closed today or may be visited by a limited number of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic threat, virtual worlds such as Decentraland present an intriguing alternative to the real world.
Interestingly, visitors to the VR world can take advantage of a really wide offer. It includes to watch the launch of SpaceX and various major sporting events.
Decentraland previously raised $ 1 million during its 2017 ICO. As part of the project, users can purchase virtual plots of land using MANA, the platform’s native token.
