About Art Archive︎︎︎

  Founded & designed by me
  Descriptions submitted by public


About Art is a growing archive of artwork, described by people from all walks of life. This project was born out of a determination to break the stigma surrounding art discourse, that only certain people could access these works or appreciate them, while opening up a discussion on what constitutes as ‘art’ is in the first place- with submissions ranging from Michelangelo’s David to Pokemon cards.

The archive offers an unconventional way of engaging with and discovering art, in which it’s description is read first, encouraging imagination and a greater connection once the image is revealed. The archive is also organised by thematic keywords provided by given descriptions, rather than traditional categories of period or geographic origin.
