LOS ANGELES, CA October 7, 2021 – MONOGRAMA, a decentralized autonomous fair trade organization (DAO) has partnered with virtual world platform SuperWorld to release “AMAZONIA,” an art exhibition and NFT gallery in augmented reality (AR). The exhibit incorporates art, music, video and cultural artifacts from members of the Paiter Surui and Cinta Larga tribes of Western Brazil Amazonia Region.
The exhibition, curated by MONOGRAMA, will take place in two 3D-modeled galleries in AR that have been geo-pinned by the tribes on their respective land in the Amazon rainforest, that you will be able to visit from your home. All the Artworks of both galleries will be on sale or for auction as 1 to 1 NFTs on in the SuperWorld NFT Salon from October 12 2021
“We’ve worked hand-in-hand with the tribes for months to build awareness,” says world-renowned artist Patrick Amadon, who helped coordinate and curate the exhibit. “The galleries contain photos, stories, songs, and artifacts that will live forever on the blockchain, beyond the reach of forces seeking to take the tribal lands. Our hope is that these NFTs will continue to exist as symbols of defiance and preserved history, while people from around the world can visit and immerse themselves in the culture of these great tribes via AR.”
The AMAZONIA exhibit will also support Oyxabaten (OYX), an indigenous cryptocurrency developed by and for the Paiter Suruí and the Cintas-Largas tribes (+/- 4,000 people) in the states of Rondônia and Mato Grosso, Brazil.
According to SuperWorld Co-Founder and CEO Hrish Lotlikar. “At SuperWorld, our vision is to help build a better world, and a move toward helping indigenous cultures and bringing attention to people in need all over the globe aligns perfectly with our business model. Team SuperWorld is dedicated to moving forward in the metaverse and giving back in the real world, and the AMAZONIA project gives people all over the world the perfect opportunity to appreciate digital art in augmented reality, and to affect profound change on the ground.”
With AMAZONIA, both MONOGRAMA and SuperWorld stand by a mutual commitment to promote creativity and art that not only entertains, but educates, and serves as a catalyst to help worldwide efforts to combat climate change, hunger, poverty, and inequality.

About OYXABATEN ( OYX )
The Suruí Paiter and the Cintas-Largas maintain the traditional indigenous way of life, based on fishing, planting, handicraft and agriculture. However, in recent months these peoples have struggled against hunger, covid-19, illegal mining, agribusiness and deforestation. The proceeds from the cryptocurrency will be used to build and maintain projects in the regions where these peoples live, in the states of Rondônia and Mato Grosso, guaranteeing a minimum income, food security and integration of the villages.
