The world of fine art can feel exclusive and intimidating, but Artsy makes it easy to discover up-and-coming talent and learn more about established artists. And if you’re interested in becoming a collector, the app helps with that too, connecting you with galleries.
When you first open Artsy, you’ll be asked which famous artists you want to follow (Warhol, Picasso). From there, the home feed serves up more artists you may like, plus upcoming art fairs and individual works that may match your tastes. The more artists and works you save and follow, the better these recommendations will be.
If you’re serious about collecting, or just curious about the cost of an original Van Gogh sketch, check out the Auctions tab. There you’ll learn about upcoming live auctions or explore auctions that take place over a few hours or days. Register to bid quickly and easily by providing your name and a valid credit card.
Get more details on a specific work by tapping on it to learn about the artist, medium, size, and price. By tapping the picture frame icon, you can use your iPhone or iPad’s camera and augmented reality (AR) to see what the piece would look like on your wall…if only to imagine having a Monet in your living room.
