If you were ever wondering if there was an easy way to search for art according to color or a specific mood – now there is. Art.com introduces their new and free iPad app called artCircles. The hand-picked art collection from artCircles contains over one million works of art. But what makes this incredible collection unique is the way you experience it.
The art collection is built out of three different circles. Users can spin the color circle and search through the art collection according to a specific color. If I’m looking for a purple image for my office or just feel blue, artCircles can help me find the right image for my working space or mood. If I’m not a color person I can spin the circle which sorts art according to words. You want to know what quirky or mysterious art looks like – not a problem for artCircles.
But this is not all. Additionally to that the user can experience personal art collections from various curators. Users can get inspired through art selected by designer Yves Behar, technology innovator Michael Hawley, pianist Eric Lewis (ELEW), performance painter David Garibaldi or children book author Leslie McGuirk, among others. Every curator gives additionally to that a small and personal audio introduction, to explain their choice of art and to encourage creativity in others.
artCircles also allows users to read a small informative article about every piece of art, to check out how the image would look on their wall, to buy a print of it, to create an own art collection of favorite images and to share these with friends and family through mail or Facebook.
To bring artCircles to life award-winning agency Mekanism created a short film “From Van Gogh to Rothko in 30 Seconds”. The video has received already over 200,000 views in the past two days and is featured on YouTube’s “Popular Videos Around the Web” page.
The iPad app is available on iTunes and is free. Check it out and take a spin through purplish Van Gogh or quirky Magritte.
