After considerable effort over the past four years, I'm very excited to share with you the company and larger art/tech community we call Artmatr.
With enormous help from MIT, Pratt Institute, Konstanz University and generous corporate partners like Bluedge, we have been able to bootstrap a project that would otherwise have cost millions of dollars in development.
By uniting traditional art practices and innovative technologies, Artmatr is helping to redefine what painting can mean in the digital age.
Please find our monthly newsletter below. And you're cordially invited to our first open house on Thursday September 13th, 2-7pm (53 W. 17th St.)
You will be receiving an invite under separate cover.
Artmatr is an international community of artists and engineers merging cutting edge technology with traditional painting methods.
