ArtLink addresses the needs of the very challenged cultural and performing arts sector. Artists, galleries, museums, are all suffering financially because of COVID-19 restrictions, while their public finds it difficult to get in touch with their exhibits. The lockdown caused 90% of the art institutions to close, some of which will never reopen again. This caused the art market sales to drop by 23 billion and many people to lose their jobs.
With the help of augmented reality, we're currently amassing an online virtual gallery that strives to gather as many young artists and cultural institutions as possible in an effort of building a bridge between artists, museums, galleries, and their public. Hence the name ArtLink, and our motto: The Art World at your fingertips.
To democratize access to visual arts and bring galleries and museums closer to people, and at the same time, bring people from any corner of the world and any walk of life closer to art and culture.
We offer the experience of high definition 3D representations of both physical and digital artworks in a safe and familiar environment, connecting artists, audiences, and art institutions in one place. We truly believe that ArtLink can embody the future of art and technology because it represents an opportunity for artists, art institutions, creative industries, and the general public to get together and connect digitally over large distances in a way they never could before, and build an artistic connective tissue both online and offline, locally and globally.
We help galleries, museums, collectors and artists digitize their artworks, movies and gifs and exhibit them in Augmented Reality.
We offer an interactive 3D experience with 3D scultpures, design objects, products and animations
We help brands augment their merchandise and brand identities in collaboration with artists.
