Entrepreneur: Michael Pybus

Business: Welcome Screen

Location: London

Business Description

Welcome Screen is creating a gallery platform which operates as a hybrid between a physical gallery space and an online gallery. Over recent years, there has been an increasing focus within the art world on virtual galleries and online projects produced by artists. Most art now is viewed through computer screens, but the business will have a physical space in which an artist would install their work and which will be documented and uploaded online to be fully integrated into a virtual experience to view the exhibition alongside projects specifically commissioned to be online.
The gallery would offer the artworks for sale but also, through a web shop, offer unique, commissioned prints and artists’ products to those who can't afford more expensive artwork. The gallery space would be made available to whoever would wish to visit and view the works in person. However, the main emphasis would be experiencing the art and viewing the items for sale through the website.
