Celebrate Pride month with Acrylic & LGBT+ VC

Ahead of the LGBT+ VC 2024 Summit, we are are collaborating with LGBT+ VC to release a limited run of robotically-created, human-perfected paintings. Designed by an emerging non-binary artist, this exclusive collection celebrates how far we've come and the brilliant future we're building together.

Shop collection

Art. Robotics. AI.

We make robots that paint with precision, and software that can turn any image or idea into a masterpiece with real brushstrokes. In other words, we're creating a whole new medium of fine art for the modern age.

Philosophy

The world is changing. Art isn't keeping up.

In the current system, virtually no one wins. Painted art remains exclusive, gatekept and prohibitively expensive, meaning most people don't get to interact with it. Most artists are struggling to make a living. Every other creative medium has seen technology bring them from the elite to the public, but fine art stands alone in being valued primarily through scarcity.

We think great art - in its intended form - should be part of our everyday lives. It should be enjoyed by all, not just ultra-wealthy collectors.

In solving this problem, we can create new income streams for working artists to make significantly more money, on their terms. And, counterintuitively, we believe this won't cheapen original works for artists but make them all the more valuable.

67%

of Americans have never purchased art. 48% cite high cost as the primary factor.

7%

of local galleries have gone out of business in the past year alone due to lack of scalability.

70%

of professional artists in Canada bring in less than $10k/year from their artworks.

Technology

We've created a way to produce beautiful, textured, painted art at scale

Our technical team was trained at the world's top universities in fields like control systems, mechatronics design, computer vision, neural networks, lean manufacturing and industrial automation.

We've spent three years iterating on a cutting-edge technical stack pushing the boundaries of robotics and machine learning, and we have ambitious plans to make it even better.

Million of data points captured per piece

Our paintings have thousands of strokes each — many more than are visible to the naked eye, but which contribute to the depth and dimensionality of the final result.

Professional grade paint pigments

Quality paint pigments can't be mimicked by ink colours (like those used in printing). We produce rich textures, lustres and colours that make artworks pop.

Indistinguishable from painting by hand

Our robots capture the painting process from start to finish with exactly the same moves an artist makes. No two strokes — and no two paintings — are perfectly identical.

Artist: Matt Chessco

Acrylic Robotics painting

Our proprietary painting technology was designed to skillfully capture the depth, translucence, pigment blending and intentionality of an artist's handiwork.

We already live in a world where the world’s best music plays from every speaker and the world’s best literature sits on every shelf. It's time to build a world in which real, painted, museum-quality artwork hangs on every wall.
