We launched Carataggio a couple of weeks ago as a fast, fun way to help us add tags to the world of art. We’re very happy to announce over 40,000 tags have been added, and even more happy to announce the winner of the iPad 2 draw. We took the top 10% of the scoretable and picked one person at random.
Congratulations David from the Netherlands. You’ll be receiving an iPad 2 very soon.
With thanks to TheNextWeb for originally trumpeting Carataggio to the world. Look out for future competitions.
Our friends at The Next Web have just featured our latest experiment, where you can win an iPad2!
Being able to search and browse art using tags is fantastic, you can get from A to B via XYZ in a nice, organic route. It’d be even more amazing to be able to create collections of all the art featuring horses/kittens/trees, with one click.
The problem is most art is not categorised at all, or categorised extremely precisely and uniquely. Somewhere in between, based on a simple scheme would be ideal, so we thought we’d try something new. Continue reading

Homepage, the first
When we launched Artfinder in March our homepage was a bit of a compromise based around what we knew we had to go live at launch. Now we’ve got a lot more going on, so we’ve decided it was time to reflect that. Continue reading
If, like us, you are quickly dashing off to the shops to pick up some chocolates, socks, tobacco or whatever it is you like to give your dads, for those of you with an artistic bend of mind, how about sitting your dad down for a portrait? Continue reading
The new Artplayer: your own personal art channel
If you’re a music fan, you’re probably familiar with the streaming radio of Spotify, Pandora or Last.fm: it’s radio able to play from a vast catalogue, from a single artist or a shared playlist from a friend. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy it. Continue reading
We’ve all been there before: stuck at an airport, waiting, waiting, waiting, zzzzzzz, for an update on a cancelled or delayed plane.
We’ve browsed through all the best sellers on the bestseller booklist, we’ve tried on all the moisturisers, and we’ve sprayed on all the perfume that our noses can handle (never mind our fellow passengers).
We’ve had coffee, then a glass of wine. We’ve been to the toy store and played with all the toys. And then supreme boredom set in.
So what if there was something else to do at an airport besides shopping, drinking, eating, and general twiddling of one’s thumbs?
Well, it turns out that there is: Some airports have massage centers, or gyms, or swimming pools. But others have art galleries! Continue reading
