OPEN CALL - Canvia

We're an arts and technology startup seeking artist contributions for our first project Canvia, a new way of experiencing, promoting and earning from art.


Canvia is a digital display network that brings art into homes, offices, hotels and other spaces throughout the world like never before. The high-definition Canvia device samples the ambient light in the room and uses the data to adjust the display, resulting in images that can be mistaken for actual paintings or prints. It connects to an online library of art, enabling users to choose and explore works to suit changing moods, occasions and contexts.


Following a very successful first year of sales to residential art collectors, offices and hotels in the U.S., Canada and Europe, we are now expanding our library of contemporary artwork. We're interested in licensing the works of artists of all types and backgrounds as digital reproductions for use on Canvia's platform. Artists' work is only accessible to our users and the license does not affect any sales of original artwork or reproductions, nor does it keep you from displaying your work elsewhere online. 


For a limited time, there is no cost to artists to exhibit their work on Canvia's platform. 


In addition to the obvious benefit of being featured on thousands of walls around the world, Canvia offers a variety of other benefits including the sharing of subscription revenue with its partner artists in the form of royalties.


Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2021


For more information, please visit or contact submissions [op] palacio [punt] life.
