MakersPlace is excited to be hosting an exhibition at this year’s Metaverse Art Week in the Decentraland from August 24–28. For this year’s MAW, MakersPlace commissioned renowned artist Alan Bolton to adapt his art as an installation in the Plaza.

Alan Bolton is an Irish mixed-media digital artist living in Tenerife, Spain. A multidisciplinary creator, Bolton’s work is not defined by one form of media and includes photography, videography, graphic design, 3D art, augmented reality, digital collage, and more. His works are imaginative with a surrealist, abstract feel, and his practice focuses on experimentation and evolution.  

THE SUCCESSOR is part of Alan Bolton’s REBIRTH Collection — an abstract representation of the creation of a new breed of human beings in the future. Each artwork within the collection takes viewers on a unique journey of the creative process to building a new human. 

The collection is divided into three stages: Consciousness, Human Design, and Technology. THE SUCCESSOR represents Stage Two — the human design process. This stage merges elements of our current universe, organic matter, technology, and nature with human beings to begin the rebirth of our successor.
