This is a selection of pictures in your dashboard that you make according to your preferences and interests. You always have access to it.

There are various types of filters available for the users to find out the artworks they look for. First of all - location.

If you are located in the same city as the painting, you have the possibility to see it live before you purchase it. In addition, it is possible to filter artworks by date of placement, size, price range. You can also enter the search genre of works and the system will find the appropriate hashtag and give the desired result.
