However, it’s not only the public spaces that are embracing this trend but also Chinese millennials are increasingly adorning their homes with 3D artwork, signaling a growing market for decorative paintings in the digital age.

The increasing demand for these digital artworks has brought with it new challenges, particularly in terms of production costs. However, innovative solutions have emerged, such as smart production techniques.

Companies are collaborating with artists, utilizing advanced 3D printers to scan and reproduce paintings, capturing the original texture and coloring. This process offers art enthusiasts a great opportunity to own a piece that closely resembles the original, but at a much more affordable price.

Joe, the founder of a successful art company has recognized the potential of the digital realm. His company already sells millions worth of paintings each month through e-commerce platforms. To grow his company, he is looking into a different kind of online marketplace for art.

“In the future, we want to turn this painting into a metaverse experience. You can drink tea, ride the boat, and hang out with friends, but we want to explore the concept of NFT as well. You’ll need certain tickets to unlock new interactions.” He said.
