  • What is an Art QR Code?

  • Who created the Art QR Codes?
    • The Art Collective ELKOY created the Art QR Code, led by Eric Baesa.
  • What inspired the Art QR Code?
    • Eric Baesa’s travels inspired the Art QR Code to Asia, where large businesses have integrated QR Codes as a contactless payment method coherent to the Pandemic. Since the “classic” QR Code is seen as aesthetically unappealing and lacks storytelling value, Eric began to think about a QR Code alternative that would allow the integration of graphic elements & storytelling potential. After a few unsuccessful attempts, he created a new generation of QR Codes that would allow branding & graphical elements integration.
