ArtzCafe©: An app to help you find art you love

Introducing ArtzCafe Showcase, a tool “to the trade” supporting high end designers and art advisors.

How it works

ArtzCafe is based on a simple premise: Advanced analytics for the user. What this means is you tell us what art you like and don't like, then we find more we think you will like. Working for you. Your feedback allows the art you love to find you.



Q: What is ArtzCafe?

A: ArtzCafe is designed as a mobile app to help consumers find art they love. As such, it may be thought of as a visual search engine.

Q: What is available now?

A: Our first release will be the ArtzCafe Showcase tool for arts consultants. We are presently collecting galleries and artists for testing from high-end professional interior designers.

Q: And what are your long term plans?

A: Our long term plans include the Showcase app for professionals and the mobile app for the complete market. Plans for both products also include communication of art events.

ArtzCafe Showcase

Q: What is ArtzCafe Showcase?

A: Showcase is a “To the Trade” tool to support high end professional designers and art advisors in helping them find art for their customers.

Q: Why would I want to use Showcase:

A: In a word - efficiency. We have no delusions; people do not want to buy art online. Especially high end art. But a process to quickly help consulting professionals zero in on the art of most interest to the customer is an efficiency win for all.


Q: What type of art will you feature?

A: Given the mobile medium we are looking for original 2-dimension art (for now). Original art please, no reproductions of any kind.

Q: Will ArtzCafe always be free?

A: It is our intent that a version ArtzCafe will always be available for free to artists and consumers. However, extended functionality may incur costs.

Q: Will ArtzCafe be a site to sell art?

A: Absolutely not. When a customer finds art they like, they can click through directly to your web site. From that point on we are not involved at all.

Q: What platforms is ArtzCafe available on?

A: ArtzCafe is presently designed for iOS platforms (iPhone and iPad). It is optimized for iPhone 6 and 6+. Work continues to improve the iPad experience and move to other platforms.

Q: How accurate will the predictions be?

A: ArtzCafe is being produced by Z Solutions, a 20+ year provider of analytics consulting and developer of machine learning algorithms. Z Solutions will be providing proprietary state of the art techniques. The interest in this topic is based on the belief that understanding preferences in art may be the hardest personalization problem of all - it should be fun and we would not be undertaking it if we did not think we would succeed.

Q: As an artist, why should I be interested in ArtzCafe?

A: ArtzCafe is a simple way to for an artist to be discovered by potential clients. It is free and powerful and easy.

For the Art Consumer

Q: As an art consumer why should I be interested in ArtzCafe?

A: Consumer preferences are being collected and analyzed by marketers and analysts of all stripes. Primarily these seem to feed consumers a lot of advertising - often for a product you bought last week. With ArtzCafe, we are starting to turn the tables, your preferences are used to develop prediction tools (called preference engines) to help the consumer, not the marketer. In this case the helping you find art you love.

Q: This whole business of collecting preferences and making predictions concerns me. What will you be able to tell about me?

A: Because you have entered your preferences for art on ArtzCafe , we will be able to tell you are smart, interesting, creative, funny, attractive, great person. Other than that, nothing.

Q: I have been asked to be an early tester. What does that mean? What is in it for me?

A: Early testers are needed to make sure the app functions as intended and to provide an early set of preferences for us to build our first models. For this you will have our eternal gratitude and the pleasure of watching the app grow and the prediction accuracy increase.
