Wand, a New York-based collaborative, creative tool that gives artists hands-on control and personalization, raised a seed funding round.
The round was led by a creative investment firm, O'Shaughnessy Ventures LLC ("OSV"), to empower artists to bring their ideas to life.
The other key ingredient in Wand's UX is personalization: artists can upload a handful of images from their portfolio to create a custom, fine-tuned AI that understands their style and add it to their growing private collection.
Artists can jam together on freeform mood boards and even collaborate on training custom models for their projects. Wand emphasizes visual illustration to guide models like Stable Diffusion.
