What is SMARTIFY?

SCAN, IDENTIFY and UNCOVER THE GREAT STORIES BEHIND YOUR FAVOURITE ARTWORKS.

Ever been to an art gallery and struggled for more information about the works? Had to forfeit your smartphone and Hi-Fi noise cancelling headphones in favour of a second-hand audio guide and a pre-selected tour?

Using advanced image recognition and Augmented Reality (AR), SMARTIFY provides instant access to inspiring art commentary, straight to your smartphone. Our app allows you to scan, identify and save art. It also serves as a personalized, on-the-ground guide to any museum or gallery we partner with.

SMARTIFY CIC is a social enterprise with a mission is to help people make meaningful connections with art and to support global visual arts organisations – public and commercial. We’re focused on protecting artist and museum intellectual property and ensure profits are channelled back to the public institutions we serve.
