MEAACBA Board Chairman, Jehanzeb Awan, said: “We are delighted that Amrita has joined the Association.  The unique way she combines physical artwork, NFTs and fashion with augmented, virtual reality and artificial intelligence has made her a global leader in the multimedia art genre.  We are excited to have her as an advisor to the Association and know members will benefit from her experience and counsel through a range of initiatives.”

Amrita moved into art following a successful career in the banking world, which lead to the creation of her multimedia art genre, SoundBYTEs(c) and her own language called The AlphaBYTEs.  She was selected for Expo 2020 and has created one of the world’s largest augmented reality murals and the first of its type in the Middle East.

“The crypto and blockchain sector is on a journey which requires education, transparency and regulation.  Through the Association I hope I can help support the development of all three of these areas, especially education, so that we can foster innovation and talent.” added Ms Sethi.
