Discover artists wherever you are and view their works virtually in your home or office before making a purchase
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 11, 2014 — Saatchi Art, the leading online art gallery, today announced a new mobile application that transforms the experience of buying art online by enabling users to virtually preview artwork on their walls before making a purchase.
“For art buyers, one of the hardest parts of making a purchase is imagining what a work will look like on your own wall,” said Scott Boecker, General Manager of Saatchi Art. “With the app’s View In A Room feature, we’ve eliminated that guesswork by allowing you to use your phone’s camera to view a specific work to scale on your wall in real time. If you like the work, you can snap a picture of it within the app and easily share it with family and friends.”
Highlights of Saatchi Art’s app:
- Browse thousands of artworks by medium, size and price point.
- View a work to scale on your wall.
- Share your View In A Room photo through email or social media.
- Discover and “follow” artists from our global community of 50,000 artists.
- Track trending artworks through Popular Favorites.
- See what Saatchi Art’s curators are excited about in Featured Art.
- Purchase with confidence with Saatchi Art's 7-day money back guarantee.
Saatchi Art’s app also allows artists to photograph, upload and manage their artwork online, and to connect with a global community of art lovers.
“Artists spend their days in studios rather than in front of computers but they always have their phones with them, so the artist features on the app will speed up the process for uploading their new works and help them to easily monitor their sales online,” said Rebecca Wilson, Saatchi Art’s Chief Curator and Director, Art Advisory.
The Saatchi Art app is free and available for download at www.saatchiart.com/mobile and is available in the iTunes app store under “Saatchi Art.” To download high-resolution images, visit: bit.ly/saatchi-art-app.
