Welcome

We are an art and game studio that works exclusively with undiscovered artists and developers to unleash their creativity on the blockchain

About us

We work exclusively with artists who mint their genesis NFTs with us. We work across traditional and digital media, with a heavy emphasis on classic fine art in physical media such as acrylic and watercolour painting.

We focus on exclusive, rare and small mint batches that respects the skill, time and quality each artist achieves.

We have been investors in Cardano, Ethereum and XRP since 2017. Aquarelle will be working with artists on Cardano, Ethereum, XRP and other blockchains for years to come.

Aquarelle is an art and game studio and we will develop a metaverse across Cardano and other blockchains.You will start seeing a little of that vision as part of our launch.

Rarity of art

  • All our artists mint their genesis nfts and early pieces exclusively with our studio.
  • All our artists have years to decades of track record as academic, professional or commercial artists but are undiscovered in the blockchain space.
  • All our artists work in physical media such as fine art, painting, bodypaint, and installation that takes years to master and is very difficult to create and replicate.
  • All our launch collection work will be small batch only : think 1 - 100 not 10,000

XRPL Grant Winner!

Aquarelle wins one of the first ever XRPL grants from https://xrplgrants.org/

This project will connect the XRP community with three foundational aspects of this metaverse: (1) an open-source NFT library that lets users mint and transact art NFTs on the XRP Ledger, (2) a web-based NFT marketplace that lets users mint, explore, buy and sell art NFTs, and (3) a WebGL 3D virtual gallery that lets users explore, customise and interact with NFT collections.

As part of this project, Aquarelle will employ and train a small group of Indian artists, developers and game designers, on the XRP ledger, NFTs and blockchain technology, in order to improve their current financial position, and provide them with future work opportunities in this emerging sector.

Milestones:

Build open source NFT library
Implement functional requirements similar to comparable libraries
Develop web NFT marketplace
Front-end design and development
Build Virtual Gallery
Implement in WebGL
Deploy in conjunction with a launch event
