The easiest way to use Augmented Reality for 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. They 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.

ARTIVIVE offers free accounts to artists until 31st of March, 2018. They can register directly on their site.


Museums, exhibitions, galleries and other institutions that seek to enhance and maximise their visitors’ experience can use Artivive. It 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.

Artivive is the tool that allows the creation and consumption of art (and immersive experiences) in augmented reality. The company was founded by Sergiu Ardelean and Codin Popescu in January 2017. They have built a highly motivated and creative team of 10 young professionals, senior developers and growth experts.

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

A lot of artists have identified the potential of augmented reality as a new way of expression and differentiation. However, to create in augmented reality, they have to build an isolated solution that requires technical skills and invest a lot of time and money. The few existing solutions have no open platform, are too technical and have bad usability and UX.

Nonetheless, the possibility to activate the time dimension for static art and haptic experience for animated art, is highly appealing to the young generation of artists and art enthusiasts. The active integration of the viewer leads to higher emotional binding and opens up new business models for the art market.

ARTIVIVE existing solution is an easy to use AR tool for artists to create, museums to expand, venues to impress. Technically, it is an AR solution with cloud-based image recognition and a video overlay. It consists of the Artivive app, the visualization component and the “Bridge by Artivive” creational component. Both components are already successful on the market, attract artists and generate downloads, views and revenue.
