NFTGirl’s [email protected] exhibition, presented as part of The Joy of NFTs Space on SuperRare, brings together work by nine Latin American artists who are leaders in the world of web3. Their art spans a diversity of styles and mediums, reflecting and honoring their complex cultural identities and experiences.
NFTs have seen wide adoption in Latin American countries due to the freedom and autonomy the technology allows artists, and Latin American artists like those featured here have made incredible strides furthering the cause of cryptoart.
