A virtual artist is a non-physical artist. That means it does not exist physically but exists mainly in the virtual space (metaverse). One of the earliest examples of a virtual artist is Hatsune Miku. A virtual artist does not have to be a musician, it can be an influencer, video artist or a meme. Defining new forms of virtual artists will be one of many goals for the MIM swarm.
