How Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse And AI Will Impact The Artworld? New Event ‘The Future of… Arts’ Brings Together Artists, Authors And Promoters To Provide The Answer

The global arts market grew from $275.58 billion in 2021 to $448.92 billion in 2022, a growth rate of 62.9%, according to The Business Research. Digitalisation and new technologies like NFTs, AI and Metaverse will fuel that growth exponentially as it democratises the creation and access to art and reaches a wider audience.

‘The Future of… Arts: Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse, IP, AI’ event is about how creativity can keep flowing with the tools of the 21st Century. If Leonardo da Vinci used the oil painting technique to achieve depth and intensity of colouring and transparency in the effects of light and shade, the artists of our times are using digital tools, producing and selling their arts with NFTs and increasingly working with Metaverse immersive experiences and artificial intelligence.

But this is just the beginning.

The future of arts will increasingly incorporate many more elements of creator new dimensions, IP definition, interaction with technologies, engagement with institutions, virtual spaces, metaverse immersive worlds, and integrated gamification communities. And special interaction between human to human and human to machines.

Digital arts, certification Royalties, NFTs, and Metaverse are taking over the art world, and the future of the art(s) is confusing and will give more power to artists if they know how to use the tools of our times. NFTs and special Metaverse multiple solutions art(s) creativity related are rapidly changing the way artists create, are paid and revolutionising how NFT artists can work, create new projects, and take ownership of their art.

As Dinis Guarda, the host of the event and the author of many books on the topic of digital transformation, has predicted:

“NFTs have, in a short time, tapped into our desire to acquire and own, creating value and a whole new dimension of investment commodities. NFTs can be used to encapsulate and represent the ownership of almost anything, which makes for a vast potential market. Our society today is increasingly digital in its substance and expression. NFTs are here to stay and grow as a crucial component of digital certification for our businesses and an ever-evolving Metaverse.”

The topics which will be covered during the event include:

• The Future of Art(s): Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse, IP, AI;

• Art world in a Web3 Metaverse world;

• Buying and collecting art in the future;

• Art(s) IP, royalties, art;

New business models for artists in the Metaverse;

• Collectors and art dealers, new business solutions and possibilities.
