Artpip was created in 2016 by a group of developers and art-lovers in Madrid, Spain. Their objective was to recreate the experience of visting the world's greatest museums, bringing history's greatest masterpieces to users' desktops around the world. All images on Artpip are available in 4K Ultra-HD resolution, bringing the art-viewing experience into the retina age.
Artpip defaults to an editor-curated "Featured" collection, with one new masterpiece selected for display each day. Users also have the option of curating their own "Custom" collections, selecting the kind of Artwork they would like to see. Artpip offers a premium version, Artpip Pro, adding some further advanced functionality such as the ability to change your background automaticaly up to every 5 minutes, or to create a "Favourites" collection that will display artworks that the user has previously favourited. The Artpip Pro upgrade is a one-off payment of $9.99.
Should a user fall in love with any of the paintings, they can purchase a museum-quality reproduction print on the website. Prints can be purcahsed as canvases, framed posters or paper postsers and are available in a large selection of sizes.
