José Delbo, a comic book artist who has drawn for DC and Marvel, opens today (July 23) a week-long exhibition in the virtual reality world based on Ethereum, Decentraland.
The artist, who began his career at the age of 16, is known for drawing Wonder Woman for DC Comics and Transformers for Marvel. He is launching a series of digital images in the VR world for display and sale in the MakersPlace game gallery, with proof of ownership registered through blockchain technology.

Cointelegraph visited the gallery earlier today, as anyone can enter the virtual environment at the touch of a button. Although crowds were rare, a number of online users stood in front of the artist’s work, listening to his own words describe the pieces. The virtual gallery is not exceptionally large, so users can see the entire exhibition in a short time.
Perhaps the most current artwork on display was a drawing of Superman hitting the coronavirus while wearing a mask, „The Last Son of Krypton Fights for Humanity. Other pieces featured Batman, Wonder Woman, and a work on the „Certainty of Death“.

Art moves into the digital world
Since many galleries and exhibitions around the world remain closed or have reduced capacity due to the threat imposed by COVID-19, virtual worlds like Decentraland offer an intriguing alternative. Guests of the VR world can enjoy some of the game’s offerings such as the launch of SpaceX and sporting events.
