Due to the fact it is #InternationalWomensDay, we thought it only fitting to shed some light, provide detail on the inspiration, and show off the eight amazing female artists who created the 8 unique pieces within the Sneaky Vampiress Syndicate.
One of our main objectives within the Sneaky Vampiress Syndicate was to provide a female angle, empower women and show off some of the amazing talent of females within the NFT Scene.
We are aware that in the current NFT scene, women are often not given the same equal opportunity as many others. This has taken a positive turn in recent times, but it is still something that we are actively working towards to make a difference in. We thought what better than to be able to showcase some amazing work by eight amazing female artists within our Generation 2 collection.
One of the major efforts we have taken to give more exposure to women through our work is the entirety of our Gen 2, The Vampiresses. Our entire Gen 2 collection of SVS is solely dedicated to females, and one of our main ideas leading into it was to use our large platform to be able to garner more positive attention to all female NFT artists within the space! With all of our collections at SVS we have always adhered to the idea of having some unique pieces hidden in there.
So how did we do this with our Vampiresses launch? We decided that nothing would be more exciting than getting our 8 unique pieces created by 8 separate female artists within the NFT space! We were completely impartial to this, it did not matter to us if the artist was not entirely “well known” as others, as long as they were as excited for the opportunity as we were with the idea; we were more than happy with the outcome! So here’s a little highlight on each of the amazing unique piece from within the Sneaky Vampiress Syndicate, along with the female artists that provided their amazing touch for each piece. Be sure to check them out via the provided links!
