Artivive was founded by Sergiu Ardelean and Codin Popescu in January 2017 in Vienna, Austria. We’ve built a highly motivated and creative team of professionals and senior developers to help us become the augmented reality solution for artists and creatives. 

Our vision is to change how art is created and consumed - and build the community around augmented reality art. 

Artivive is an AR tool that allows artists to create new dimensions of art by linking classical with digital art. The digital layer opens doors to a whole new world of possibilities. Artists can take visitors on a journey through time, explain what lies underneath, enhance the art with animations, or show how the artworks were made. Over 400.000 creatives worldwide are creating artworks with Artivive across 190 countries. For museums, exhibitions, galleries, and other art institutions Artivive offers a new and innovative way for the audience to interact with exhibitions. Visitors only have to use their smartphones or tablets in order to experience the layer of augmented reality. Please check our case studies to see our collaborations from around the world on YouTube.
We work with museums, galleries, festivals, and designers to present tailored solutions to individual problems. For our clients, Artivive provides a reliable, fast, and scalable infrastructure for the best experience for their visitors, prolonging visitation time, thus increasing emotional bonding. In addition, Artivive creates digital content, organizes workshops, and proposes artists for collaborations. Artivive has a subscription-based model for artists and creatives worldwide and a project-based model for B2B counterparts. The different account types can be found on the Artivive website: For the Albertina Museum in Vienna, we created the digital content for the exhibition “Film Stills” and integrated AR experiences into the permanent collection “Monet to Picasso – The Batliner Collection”. In 2021, we collaborated with WWF for the project "Give fish a chance", a mural enhanced with AR in the captial of Croatia. For the 50th anniversary of the Hard Rock café they released a special edition tee using AR art through Artivive. In 2023 our technology will be visible in the city of Linz, "the Walk of Fem" will inform people about the lives of famous women who's history and great work would have been forgotten. At the international level, we work with venues such as the Shanghai Himalayas Museum, the Ying Art Center in Shanghai, MIT – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Ilmin Museum of Art in Seoul, and the Leica Gallery in Singapore. 

Our existing solution is an affordable and easy-to-use AR tool for artists to create, museums to expand, venues to impress, and viewers to be amazed. It consists of the Artivive App, our visualization component, and the Bridge by Artivive, the creational component. They can register for free on our website, to keep creating.  #bringArtToLife
