As 2023 comes to an end and we wrap up our first full year in business since the grand launch of Vieunite in October 2022, we can’t help but reflect on the incredible journey we’ve had so far. Although the Vieunite platform has been in the works for a few years, this year has been nothing short of phenomenal.
Achievements and Updates
This year, we have been working hard to grow Vieunite into a user-friendly and innovative space where people can express their creativity and connect with like-minded art enthusiasts.
To achieve this, we have developed a new version of the Vieunite app, combining enhanced features and new functions. This new launch represented a significant leap forward in the world of art discovery and appreciation, allowing users to quickly find suitable artwork to display on Textura and ensuring an enjoyable experience.
We have also released an optimised version of the Vieunite Artists Portal, offering a variety of new features that make the selling process easier for artists.
On top of this, we have also established a variety of partnerships with established art brands that, in collaboration with Vieunite, work to make art more accessible.
Here are some of our key achievements and community developments:
- KTP with Nottingham Trent University to research the impact of biophilic art in mental wellbeing and the positive effects our Textura can have on the human mind.
- Partnership with RBSA Gallery, an artist-led charity that supports artists and the art community, for a landmark collaboration that combines art, history and innovation.
- Collaboration with Cosimo, an online art marketplace aimed at transforming the art world, to focus on ways to democratise art and make it more accessible.
We have seen the Vieunite community grow exponentially and reach new corners of the world, receiving incredibly positive feedback along the way. We are proud of the national and international exposure we have been receiving in recent months, with some industry giants highlighting our Textura as one of the best in the market.
Check out what the press has been saying about Vieunite and the Textura digital canvas:
- Financial Times – “Digital photo frames are ten-a-penny, but sumptuous 27in digital canvases that bring the Old Masters into your living room aren’t.”
- GQ – “With a high-resolution, texture-accurate display, it preserves all the surface finishes while enhancing the details of artwork.”
- T3 – “Useful for displaying favourite family photos but extra cool when recreating the texture and details of proper paintings”
- Creative Bloq – “Image quality and vibrancy is excellent, the display’s replication of texture is faultless.”
- The Ambient – “…that matt diffused anti-glare finish of the display really does create a great ‘textured’ affect for chosen artworks.”
- Tech Spurt – “As for that 27 inch display, well it’s a bit of a cracker! Vieunite has carefully constructed it to make it perfect for displaying art.”
