PAINTINGS AS PORTALS®
Order a beautiful, professionally framed landscape print online; hang it on your wall, insert your mobile in the included viewer and step inside the painting for an immersive, interactive animated VR tour of the location.
What if you could actually STEP INTO the painting on your wall?
This is the concept behind Art2VR’s unique “Paintings As Portals®”, framed landscapes on your wall that transport you to the world behind the paint strokes by the magic of VIRTUAL REALITY.
Art2VR sells framed prints of beautiful, unique landscapes to hang in your home as regular wall art. But your picture also acts as a portal to an animated virtual reality tour of the landscape that really puts you among the paint-strokes.
And, unlike other VR tours you may have seen, in this one you CHOOSE where you wander.
(Below is a selection of brief samples of the animated tour footage for this landscape. Drag on screen to look around as you would in the viewer)
