Most people don't know where to begin to find works of art for their home. TechCrunch Rookie Disruptor award winner Art.sy aims to change that.

Live from the TechCrunch Disrupt conference, Art.sy, the new start up website to discover and share original fine art online won the TechCrunch Rookie Disruptor award, a custom award for the battlefield, presented by Yahoo’s Raymie Stata.

Most people don’t know where to begin to find works of art for their home. Schlepping to countless art galleries on the weekend is time consuming. And oftentimes, people don’t buy art because they feel unwelcome and intimidated by the art scene. Art.sy works with galleries and artists to make art searchable by medium, price range, size and location. Art.sy, a beautifully designed site, even includes recommendation algorithms.

Carter Cleveland, who founded Art.sy while still a student at Princeton University demonstrated the fine art platform, which is deeply integrated with social media and emerging technology platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, before an audience of over 1,500 leading technology innovators and investors at TechCrunch Disrupt. He thanked the audience for their support saying, “Not even quadrupling our servers was enough yesterday, you guys still managed to crash our site during the presentation!”

Art.sy was selected from over 500 startup companies worldwide to launch live on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt. Several leading New York galleries such as Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe , Hirschl & Adler, and Tibor de Nagy have partnered with Art.sy to feature their artists on the platform for the invitation-only launch, with many additional galleries expected to join in the coming weeks.
