Meural Canvas II – New Art Everyday in your home

I’m no art connoisseur, but like most people I love having pictures on my walls. The thought of having great works hanging there to look at is a lovely thought, but usually a labour of love (even for copies) until I read about the Meural Canvas II.

The Meural Canvas II is a digital canvas that allows you to show art in a close form to the original on your wall, and to change it daily!

The new Meural Canvas II will be available in two sizes, the larger 19×29 with a 27-inch HD digital canvas and a smaller 16×24 frame with 21.5-inch HD digital canvas at an attractive entry-level price.

The two sizes will make for more options for more walls in your home or office. Each of the canvases feature a 16:9 ratio and can orient to portrait (vertical) mode or landscape (horizontal).

Digital Art

Pictures of art are not the same as the actual art. Of course they’re not. But the XX might actually be a better viewing experience than prints.

With the signature anti-glare matte display, the Meural Canvas showcases every brushstroke, so that each piece is displayed like the original as seen in a gallery or museum.

There is a front-facing ambient light sensor to better adjust the screen illumination based on the lighting within your home and display all the pieces in the best possible way.

Your choice of Art

The Meural Canvas II connects to your WiFi network and you can load your own pictures onto it to display in a specified or random order. You can also subscriber to “Meural Members” where you are given access to a dynamic library of art with over 30,000 works curated from leading museums, artists, and image collections from around the world.

There are four ways to interactively navigate the library of art via the smart canvas:

  • Gesture control Simply wave your hand in front of one of the Canvas’ two embedded sensors to change the art or access settings.
  • Voice control (currently with an Amazon Alexa device)
  • Desktop (my.meural.com dashboard)
  • The Meural app (iOS and Android)
