Vancouver, CA / Luxembourg City, LU – February 8, 2018

Arius Technology, the leader in 3D mapping, digitization, and re-creation of masterpieces by some of the world’s most loved artists, today announced that FALNLC has selected Arius to join them in offering art collectors’ exciting new services. In March 2018, FALNLC will launch fine art re-creation and digital archiving services from within the safety of their state-of-the-art facilities at Le Freeport, Luxembourg.

With art sale records being broken year after year, the secondary art market continues to prove lucrative for collectors and investors all around the world. With more pressure to insure and store humanity’s most precious assets, the ability to enjoy a fine art re-creation, without taking a masterpiece out of storage, is a long-awaited opportunity for many.

Van Gogh Iris Textured Reproduction
Iris by Vincent van Gogh was re-created with the National Gallery of Canada.

Artworks are safely & securely stored at FALNLC Le Freeport’s highest rated maximum-security vault, where they can be carefully digitized with Arius’ on-site museum-approved system, which is operated by professional art handlers without ever leaving the facility.

Arius’ team of engineers remotely process millions of data points, transforming virtual re-creations into beautiful elevated prints that can be enjoyed at home, or in the office, as if they were the original artwork.

Collectors also have an exciting opportunity to create digital fingerprints of their entire collection. Taking a snapshot of artworks provides priceless data that can be utilized to help preserve the humanity’s cultural heritage, effectively building a cultural ‘seed bank’ for fine art. The data can also be licensed or donated to museums, publishers or exhibitors, and positions collectors to take advantage of future 3D, virtual reality and augmented reality technologies.

Bringing together world-leading capabilities in 3D digitization and elevated printing, Arius has worked with world-class museums to safely and accurately capture the colour and geometry of each brushstroke within original artworks, producing the most authentic, textured re-creations available.

“It’s the richest reprographic technology on the planet today,” remarks Stephen Gritt, Director of Conservation and Technical Research, National Gallery of Canada.

Together, FALNLC and Arius are at the forefront of using 3D digitization technology to change the way we protect, preserve, and live with art, in such away that future generations can benefit from today’s latest advances in art collector services.
