Art has always been an integral part of the DNA of SOCIAL and their first outlet at Bengaluru’s Church Street had a one of a kind ‘Artlet’ when it started in 2014. “It was and remains to be a platform where independent artists from any genre be it art, music, or any form of creative expression can showcase their work,” says Ranveer Sabhani, Business Head – South, Impresario. After the success of the ‘Artlet’ at Church Street, a full-time physical NFT Gallery & Cafe was a natural evolution for the brand. Especially considering that the outlet is in the tech capital of India where digital art and artists are thriving.

The first curation ‘Welcome to Web3: The Genesis’ was conceptualised as an introduction to web3 and the world of NFT art.
