NFT galleries have changed the game when it comes to distributing, selling, and buying digital art.
Multimedia artists have been able to share and sell their pieces in the form of NFTs, otherwise known as “non-fungible tokens.” This allows sellers and buyers of digital art to have a virtual certificate of authenticity because each NFT is unique. Like cryptocurrency, each owner of an NFT can be traced back to its inception.
NFT galleries are a collection of NFT artworks that can include a huge variety of art pieces. From illustrations to videos and audio clips, NFT galleries are an excellent way for digital artists to showcase their work in the community.
Here is a list of NFT galleries and online communities that feature Latine artists, and that should be on your radar!
Xave Market includes a variety of works from Latin American artists, and soon they will be expanding to include work by African artists.
The intention behind Xave Market was to create a space where more artists could have the “possibility of commercializing their digital work without intermediaries such as galleries, curators or art managers, enabling their artistic pieces to reach the entire world in real-time without geographical limits.” Folks can purchase different songs, video art, geometric art, and much more on their market site!
