What is SMARTIFY?

SCAN THE ART, GET THE STORY

Love visiting art galleries but hate not knowing the stories behind the artworks?
Wish you could carry your favourite art with you, and show your collection to friends?

Smartify is a free app which helps people make meaningful connections with art. Using image recognition technology, Smartify instantly identifies artworks by scanning them on your smartphone.

Through Smartify, users can unlock the stories behind the art, create a digital personal art collection, and share with the Smartify community. Smartify is available at a growing network of partner venues, including some of the world’s most popular museums.

Smartify is a social enterprise supported by the British Government agency InnovateUK.

To publish art on the free platform or hear more about SMARTIFY, please send us an email.
