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 25 young professionals and senior developers to help us become the augmented reality solution for art 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 the doors to a whole new world of possibilities. Artists can take visitors on a journey in time and explain what lies behind, enhance the art with illustrations or show how the artworks were made. More than 7000 artists are creating artworks with Artivive and having exhibitions in 75 countries. For museums, exhibitions, galleries and other art institutions Artivive offers a new and innovative way for the audience to interact with the exhibits. Visitors have to use only their own smartphones or tablets in order to experience the layer of augmented reality. Please check our case studies to see our collaborations around the world on YouTube.
We work together with museums, galleries, festivals and designers and present tailored solutions. For the Albertina Museum in Vienna we created the digital content for the exhibition “Film Stills” and integrated AR experiences to the permanent collection “Monet to Picasso – The Batliner Collection”. Together with Belvedere Museum in Vienna we implemented AR experiences to their exhibitions (watch the videos here and here). Artivive was also featured in the exhibition "100 Best Posters 17 - Germany Austria Switzerland" at the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna. In 2018 Artivive also partnered up with viennacontemporary and mumok – Museum of Modern Art for the special program LIVING IMAGE during viennacontemporary international art fair 2018 (watch the video here). At the international level we work together with venues such as the Shanghai Himalayas Museum and the Ying Art Center in Shanghai, the 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 star struck. It consists of the Artivive App, our visualization component and the Bridge by Artivive creational component. We offer limited free accounts to artists.
