What is ArtBeamer?

An augmented reality app for gallerists, art dealers, and artists to generate sales.
It lets your clients and collectors preview how an artwork will look on any wall.

How to sell more

The key to selling is helping your customer understand how something could benefit him/her. Visualization is key in this process. By presenting an artwork in place in a hyper-realistic way, customers find it easier to make choices. They want to understand how paintings, photos and other works will look in their environment in real-time.

Visualization is the key

ArtBeamer is the easiest way to preview how art and images will look in place. The free app allows clients and collectors to display your artworks to scale at home. They will be amazed to see works appear as if they were truly there! This makes the sales process efficient and saves galleries, artists and interior decorators lots of time!

How can I use ArtBeamer?


At the gallery

Art dealers know the situation all too well: a collector likes an artwork, but wants to do a test hanging before making his or her final decision.

What ArtBeamer does:
Instead of lending the work to the client, in a few seconds you can upload it to the app. Let your client know the code (e.g. 12345), and he will be able to “beam” the specific artwork that you exclusively provided to him. Give an undecided client the assurance that the work actually fits him and his interior!


At the collector’s

As an art advisor or interior decorator, you want to find out which works fit a client’s space and taste. But previewing them on site is often impossible.

What ArtBeamer does:
With ArtBeamer, you always have your entire portfolio with you. It lets you personally advise your client regarding the selection of and best location for works of art – whether at home, in the office, or elsewhere. Walk through the space and make him see all options you have to propose.


From your studio

Many artists have the same burning question: How do I make more sales? What you need are effective sales tools to build your collectors base.

What ArtBeamer does:
With ArtBeamer, visual artists and photographers can present their entire portfolios to the world, within their customized app. Buyers can browse your catalogue and visualize the works in their own spaces. Offer them a first class advisory tool, and they will purchase with confidence.


Print and web

Do you have printed an illustrated catalogues or invitation cards? Do you showcase your creations on your website? Make people experience them!

What ArtBeamer does:
You can tag each artwork with a code (e.g. 12345) or a QR code. Visitors browsing your website or your printed catalogue simply type the code into the ArtBeamer app. They will immediately be able to “beam” the artwork in their space and discuss it with their families. It’s as simple as that.

How the Iceland Art Project takes full advantage of ArtBeamer

iceland project logo

The Iceland Art Project is a venture by acclaimed Swiss photographers Peter and Ursula Schaeublin. They use steel plates, exposed for weeks to the rough Icelandic climate, salt water, sulfur and soil, as a support for their large-scale landscape photographies.

To promote their unique creations, the photographers uploaded their artworks to ArtBeamer and personalized the app with their logo and contact information. “We were surprised that we could come up with our own app, just like that, and present our work to our collectors”, says Peter Schaeublin.

Interested buyers can browse all artworks with their smartphone or tablet, and – most importantly – they can do test hangings on site, at home or in their office space. “Considering that our prints on steel plates weigh 35 pounds each, the app greatly simplifies the selection and sales process.”

Test it yourself. Download the app and insert the code 015267.

Visualize the Iceland Art Project’s artworks in your own space.

Step 1: Download the app to your iOS or Android mobile device.
Step 2: Insert the code 015267
Step 3: Place the target on to the wall. Select an image and beam it.

Why is ArtBeamer for me?

ArtBeamer is great for artists, galleries, fairs and auction houses, and ideal for anyone who wants their customers’ doubt about the artwork fitting be simply dissolved. With ArtBeamer your artworks can easily figure out if an artwork fits the space, check styles and sizes and ultimately buy from you with confidence. For the first time, ArtBeamer allows dealers and artists to lend out valuable artworks virtually without shipping them, with no risk or trouble.

Art dealers know the situation all too well: a collector is very interested in a work of art, but first she wants to see it in place in her home before she makes her final decision. Or, you would like to give an undecided customer the assurance that the work actually fits him and his interior. Instead of photoshopping the art into a photo of her home or lending the work to the uncertain client, in a few seconds you can display the image in the app. The collector tests the work on his or her mobile device, beaming the image and seeing it on the screen as if it were on the wall.

If they remain uncertain, it’s easy to send a screenshot, allowing you to further assist with the selection process as if virtually visiting the collector’s home.

Furthermore, the app helps you achieve presence on millions of mobile devices and opens access to numerous new promotional possibilities. Prospective art buyers can stumble upon the app under your gallery’s name in the App Stores. The “wow-effect” of this cutting-edge application helps you to enlarge your circle of customers and to surprise your existing client base with an exciting innovation.

With ArtBeamer, visual artists and photographers have the possibility to present their complete current portfolios on mobile devices. Interested buyers can visualize the images in their own spaces. The precise appropriate size of a photographic print could even be decided before it is ordered.

The app helps potential art buyers in the selection of works and supports artists and photographers in the sale, interpretation, marketing, and promotion of their art.

Auction houses arrange preview showings to highlight some of the most promising items up for sale in the next auction. However, it remains difficult for the bidder to imagine how the work will appear in his or her home, especially if only an auction catalogue is available and he or she cannot visit the preview. As a result, some potential bidders may hold back.

With ArtBeamer, auction houses can put this uncertainty to rest.

By entering the lot number, the bidder can visualize the entire catalogue at home to scale. The auction house’s branded app is a fully functional catalogue for mobile devices and can be found in App stores. During preview showings, it can even function as an exhibition tour and audio guide.

The app owner maintains full control over its content. New images can always be uploaded and made available in seconds using our cloud-based databank system.

Art consultants, private art dealers, and interior designers personally advise clients regarding the selection of and best location for works of art – whether at home, in the office, or elsewhere. ArtBeamer allows you to expand and improve your advisory services. An entire portolio of carefully selected works is always in the palm of your hand

During visits to clients, the art can be effortlessly visualized, appearing as if on any wall. The selection, placement, and size of a work can be determined together with the client in the exact location, streamling the decision-making and sales process.

Do you offer art or photographic reproductions online? Do you already have a webshop, perhaps one in which customers can select the size, the medium, and/or the finish of their selected motif based on their own preferences? ArtBeamer can help here as well.

Customers can test the customized image on their own walls before proceding to the online check-out. They can also verify and discuss the final details including frame and matting selections. Your marketing efforts receive a boost and customer satisfaction is guaranteed.
