The Origin Story of Artfixed

In the Spring of 2014, a computer science student met a beautiful, yet sophisticated, artist. He nicknamed her “Nightingale” for she had problems with sleep due to insomnia and a crazy neighbour. Nightingale was clearly talented in her craft and quickly made John feel outmatched with her wit. A friendship grew. John found himself ever more in the world of visual arts and felt most websites in that space to be archaic. Most art websites give boring advice and are just rehases of the same old way of thinking. So out of love for the craft and the artists who practice it John founded Artfixed with the goal of bringing more hard data to the soft world of creativity.

Artfixed is about bringing a useful new perspective to the visual arts world through sciencecase studies and hard data.
