DAPHNE.ARTS is a virtual magazine and art complex located in the metaverse Second Life.
Second Life, since it started in 2003, has served as a platform for various artistic expressions where artists can display and share their works to an audience around the world.
The art complex
Throughout history, art has been inspired by myths and legends, and DAPHNE.ARTS Complex has its title inspired by the Greek myth of Apollo and Daphne, which was also inspiration for many artistic works, like the famous sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
Opened in March 2016, the art complex features monthly exhibitions, with a strong focus on the grotesque, surreal and existential themes.
Both co-founders of the gallery strongly believe that artistic expression is limitless. Real life art created by using various mediums, as charcoal and pastel, Second Life digital photo art, sculptures, installations, and all kind of artistic expressions are welcomed in the art complex. Furthermore, by combining heterogeneous works, into a “visual conversation”, they aspire to bring to the viewers new artistic proposals and unprecedented experiences.
