Art & Sustainability
We believe in the power of art and design to make the world a better place. Our mission is to improve lives, neighborhoods, and the planet by working within the community & with businesses & non-profit organizations on an array of artistic projects. We believe in Sustainable Development - inclusive prosperity, equal access to healthcare & education, and living with a minimal environmental footprint.
Aesthetics & Ethics
ArtHouseUnited brings together the studios of Fernando D. Pinon to provide clients with a single source for a wide range of fine art, artisanal products, professional creative services & good-cause sponsorship opportunities, so that we can empower our clients and partners to visualize & accomplish their goals in tune with the principles of sustainable development.
Artisanal products and professional creative services can be purchased individually from the studio or we can leverage our broad based eco-system to develop customized meta-solutions. We are committed to the highest level of design, in terms of aesthetics, function, and production, and we strive for the highest quality craftsmanship and construction. We take care to choose quality materials, source and produce products in an ecologically and socially conscious way, and always give back to the communities we serve.
ArtHouseUnited was founded in Austin, TX in 2006 as a public arts organization and was initially named “TexasModern.” Since then the studios have grown to encompass not only public art, but also fine art, fashion, photography, graphic design, product design, education, and music. In 2013 the studios made a permanent move to San Diego, CA. and are currently located in North Pacific Beach. With a focus on ecologically and socially conscious practices, ArtHouseUnited designs and produces unique artisanal products & offers professional creative services to clients throughout the United States.
