Overview

Do you really desire a painting but you’re not too sure if it’s going to work in the space that you have in mind? Worldart gives art lovers the chance to see what a painting would look like on their walls – without physically having the painting there.

It is an augmented reality application that overlays a photo of a painting from the Worldart gallery (www.worldart.co.za) on the space where the painting plans to be displayed. The result is a realistic photo of a selected artwork in the chosen environment – and suddenly acquiring a painting is easier and even more thrilling.

Users need to choose the desired painting as well as specify the distance to the display space from where they are standing – the app then overlays the image of the painting (taking real size into account) onto the area. It’s as simple as that!

  • Select a painting from the list of available art.
