Discover, Collect and Display Art
We founded Depict so that everyone can enjoy beautiful art in their home. The Depict app is a gateway to discover a wide range of art, from cutting edge digital artists to the digital archives of the old masters. And we built the Depict Frame, a gorgeous digital canvas, so that you could have a museum quality way to see and enjoy all of these beautiful works in your own home.
Our mission is to enable anyone to find, obtain, and support art that inspires them, and in connecting people with the work they love, provide a meaningful income for the creators.
Who we are
We founded Depict to bring incredible digital art into our homes, and to bring creativity into our physical spaces. We want everyone to have access to unique, beautiful, and valuable cultural objects—especially digital art.It’s not true that art and technology are at opposite ends of a spectrum, nor that technology must only make our lives faster and more efficient. Depict is using technology as a medium to make art and creativity ubiquitous in our homes and lives.
