Press Text For the Paintshow at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven

One thousand of the highest ranked paintings from The collection presented at the Van Abbemuseum Studio from the 12th to the 19th of December. The exhibition will include works by influential artists ranging from Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Mondrian, and Georgia O’Keefe.

Since the launch in June 2012, The spawned over 3,000 unique paintings by more than 1,500 different authors. The is an online real-time drawing tool, every painting is the result of a collaborative effort. Once the painting is signed and saved, it’s ranked accordingly. The person who signed it, becomes its official author and owner, while the shared canvas resets to white.

The rank of each painting is determined by using the PaintRank algorithm. The algorithm determines the reputation of the author and the popularity of the work itself by analyzing a set of factors such as the Artfacts ranking of the author, the amount of Facebook Likes and retweets the painting receives, the Google PageRank of the title, and the painting’s provenance including age, sales record and exhibition history. The painting’s rank sets the price; making the highest ranked painting the most expensive.

All paintings are available for sale throughout the exhibition-period. Once sold, the painting is immediately taken down and handed to its new owner, thereby changing the exhibition and increasing the ranking of the painting.
