Bringing artwork into digital space

In order to meet the increasingly diverse needs of the public and contribute to exploiting the potential of various art forms, a group of artists, cultural experts and technology engineers have collaborated to implement the project "Sky Gate" which provides a platform to confirm and transfer the digital ownership of artwork. After the launch ceremonies in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, the project received the attention and cooperation of many artists and art lovers.

"Sky Gate" started with fine art and photography. The project aims at the more long-term goal of bringing music, literature, cinema, and theater into the digital world. The project uses NFT (Non-Fungible Token) technology to digitize artworks with unique authenticity and ownership, co-existing alongside the original work.

NFT appeared since 2017 and became gradually more popular in the world. Nearly 60 art NFT floors were born, successfully conducting auction transactions in the millions of dollars for paintings and photos. "Sky Gate" is the first NFT art trading floor in Vietnam which has the functions of an online gallery and allows buying and selling of pieces.

An artwork featured on "Sky Gate" can be by a well-known professional artist, or by an amateur author, but all must go through a rigorous review process by a reputable curatorial panel, including painters Pham An Hai and Pham Binh Chuong (founder and moderator of the Viet Art Now art forum). Viet Art Now is an active community that gathers together a large number of famous artists and the public who love Vietnamese fine art. It is also an important partner of "Sky Gate".

In the first trading session, "Sky Gate" successfully sold 21 works. After one-month of official operation, the project is continuously adding new works, mainly paintings, photography, and most recently, the first NFT music product released on May 29, in cooperation with the Revolution Music Festival brand. 

In particular, with NFT data, it cannot be easily copied or downloaded, that contributes to the copyright protection for authors and works in the digital environment. In addition, NFT artworks can form a data warehouse to be compatible with virtual reality applications (such as VRhome, or Oculus) to help owners build digital collections at a relatively low cost.

In fact, the trend of digitization has taken place across all fields of life; including art. In the context of the complicated development of COVID-19 pandemic, NFT technology has great potential to continue to develop, helping artists connect with the public and earn more income from their works.

"Sky Gate" is expected to be a popular, modern and transparent transaction channel, helping to add value to artworks, besides the classic transaction method. 

For intangible artworks (such as songs, movies), normally, fans can preserve moments and emotions by asking for artist's autographs, taking photos together, while "Sky Gate" can provide a new way, such as using NFT technology to separately encrypt an excerpt of the work with the digital signature of the performing artist.

With the desire to build a strong NFT community, the project management team said that in a short time, it will digitize about 50,000 paintings for introduction and trade, while at the same time expanding the scope on all other areas of fine arts such as sculpture, art installations, and graphics.
