Geneva – June 29, 2022 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey” or the “Company”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI and IoT company, announced today that added new collections from several artists to its WISe.ART platform. WISe.ART’s unique competitive edge comes from its platform which is secured by WISeKey’s various security technologies enabling the authentication of digital identity based NFTs, physical objects as well as digital assets, in a safe end-to-end process. The WISe.ART platform offers users full control of their WISeID NFT, while other NFTs must request access to identity information and WISeID NFTs users then can decide by themselves what level of information they wish to share.
The NFT tokenization uses the WISeKey registered patent application “System and Method for Providing Persistent Authenticatable NFT” in the USA. With this method, NFTs have increased in value and will hold their value for a long-term. For more information visit:

They have developed broad spectrum work in the digital age by creating new architectural worlds, large digital sculptures, 360 ° digital art using VR and AR technology up to NFTs. Their art is mainly expressed in the figurative field, not disdaining abstract art where it enriches. For the paintings we use the mixed oil and acrylic technique.

Originally a painter, and sculptor, it wasn’t till 2010 when Isagus decided to explore new ideas that she found herself in trashion. Through this medium she was able to find a way to question, provoke, debate, and express her thoughts and feelings as an artist through unconventional dresses, installations and performances. Each dress presented has a name, a story to tell, a message to deliver: about the planet, the stolen childhood, human trafficking, ethnic diversities, ancestral traditions, as well as domestic abuse and wars. The first Isagus Extroversions collection was only in paper, but later, she extended it to any kind of material she could find and possibly to work with. The concept behind Isagus’ fashion art pieces plays with the idea of restoring aesthetic value to objects that have been discarded.

Diego Berro-Garcia Gonzalez
In the words of Diego Berro himself “Art has always been around me. In many different ways and through different projects and people in my life. Drawing came first, then painting, music, and acting. Began my career as a theater actor while studying film direction to learn everything that surround acting. Fell in love with all the magic happening behind the camera. Moved from Argentina to Spain and became an advertising photographer making graphic campaigns for the most important brands in the country. Meanwhile I was developing my own art with Digital art. I generate irrational visual worlds using photographs and manipulating them. Surrealism with realism.”
