José Delbo, a comic book artist for both DC and Marvel, launched a week-long exhibition on July 23 in the Ethereum-based virtual reality world, Decentraland.

Delbo, who started his career at the age of 16, is known for drawing iconic figures such as:

  • Wonder Woman for DC Comics
  • Transformers for Marvel

Delbo is releasing a number of digital images in the VR world for viewing and sale at the in-game MakersPlace gallery, with a proof of ownership recorded using blockchain technology.

The gallery could be visited by anyone by logging into the virtual environment with just the click of a button.

Cointelegraph visited the virtual gallery while mentioning that the crowds in the gallery were sparse while a number of online users stood transfixed in front of the artist’s work while listening to his own words describe the pieces.

Moreover, the virtual gallery isn’t that large, so users could see the whole exhibition in a short time.

Cointelegraph mentions that the most topical artwork on display was a drawing of Superman punching the coronavirus while wearing a mask:

“The Last Son of Krypton Fights for Humankind.”

Other pieces featured Batman, Wonder Woman, and a work on the “Certainty of Death.” 

Users can bid on Delbo’s artwork using Ethereum (ETH) or fiat.

As many galleries and exhibitions worldwide are still closed due to COVID-19, virtual worlds like Decentraland offers an exciting alternative.

The VR world guests can enjoy some of the in-game offerings like a SpaceX launch and also sporting events.

In 2017 Decentraland raised $1 million during its initial coin offering. Users can purchase virtual parcels of land with MANA, the platform’s native token.
