Application is now open for IONNYK – Photographic Art, Digital, Black & White. In partnership with the European Pepinieres of Creation, IONNYK is launching its first call for participation aimed at contemporary visual artists around photographic art, digital black & white.
IONNYK is the world’s first connected and wireless digital art frame developed on electronic paper technology (patented). It is a new medium of art, culture and design, at the service of artists and their works. IONNYK is associated with a whole new ecosystem bringing together a community of artists to offer their works through a subscription or in limited edition Black & White digital format to our Art and Design enthusiast clients.
IONNYK responds to a hitherto unmet market need, namely an innovative connected and digital art framework emphasizing Art and Design and not technology as such.
This call is for contemporary photographic and digital artists. As the IONNYK catalog is varied, participants have the opportunity to offer any form of Black & White Art, static or Smart Art, a new way for artists to express themselves.
The aim of this call
Artists joining the IONNYL Discovery catalog : They will join a community/collective and will have the opportunity over time to grow in the catalog to join the most recognized artists in the “Private Collection” catalog. These artists will have the opportunity to generate revenue based on a displaying ratio of their work by our customers and on a specific timeframe. The Discoverycatalog is made for growing and promising artists, with no official recognition on the art market yet. The objective is to make IONNYK the benchmark brand in the innovation of contemporary photographic visual art and to create an exclusive qualitative artistic community.
