V-Art is a platform for digital art assets that combines an NFT marketplace implementing IP rights with immersive exhibitions to give an all-round experience of what digital art has to offer today. Thus, it provides an infrastructure for artists, galleries, dealers, curators, museums, institutions, as well as collectors, art lovers, crypto community & corporates. V-Art is situated at the intersection of at least four partially overlapping but nevertheless distinct markets: ArtTech, Metaverse and AR/VR. Providing a full cycle of user experience with digital art, V-Art provides a new highly requested offering that is more in tune with the long-run trends of the digital sphere.

“For us it is a new leap of the Digital Art Talks series, initially started over a year ago as a Clubhouse namesake, further developed into a complete branch of podcasts, videos and discussions. We are excited about partnering with Straight Fire for a first such talk in the physical realm, planned to be brought in other countries as well, because digital art truly has no borders” — added Anastasiia Gliebova, CEO and co-founder of V-Art.

Straight Fire is a Web3 start-up bridging the real world with the Metaverse. We are building the world’s first NFT Social dApp for creating, sharing, and discovering NFT Stories.
The NFT Social dApp enables creators, collectors, and NFT enthusiasts to view and manage all their NFTs in one place and share and promote their NFT Stories on social media.
