Bring the beauty of art to the modern age
With its onboard battery, retractable cord and portable charging station, Acanvas is easily the most advanced art display on the market. You can easily set Acanvas to charge when you are away, or Acanvas can detect darkness via its ambient light sensor and charge itself when everyone is asleep.
Acanvas is also the most customizable option for your home as well.
A sleek black brown or silver frame with matting is available for making Acanvas fit right at home with your decor.
Some walls and art are bigger than others. We offer price breaks on more than one Acanvas for larger walls and art pieces.

Can I use Acanvas without an app subscription?
Yes, you absolutely can use Acanvas without a subscription.

Also, don’t forget Kickstarter backers get an included year of the Art Stations subscription.

Can I hang Acanvas in landscape mode?
At this time Acanvas is unable to switch into landscape mode. Our retractable charging solution is only able to lower and retract in portrait mode. However we understand this could limit options for hanging certain pieces and we are already looking into other shapes and styles for future product lines. For an expansive landscape view, try an Acanvas tryptych configuration for larger walls.

Does Acanvas support videos or GIFs?
At the moment Acanvas does not support videos or GIFs. Our mission is to bring art into the home, so we initially wanted to focus on creating a platform that exceeds at displaying still art. That being said, we look forward to expanding Acanvas’ features in the future! Tackling videos and GIFs is next on the list!
Do I have to hang my Acanvas art display directly above an outlet?
No. Acanvas’ charging dock has an 11ft cable that plugs into an outlet, allowing you to place Acanvas almost anywhere in your home. However, Acanvas’ charging dock needs to be placed directly below the frame.
Where can I see the list of artwork currently available on the Acanvas app / Art Stations?
We're working closely with content partners such as Fine Art America, which is an online art marketplace that houses millions of artworks ranging from classic, contemporary, to digital works. We have a curator on staff who is working to pull all of these great images into Art Stations within the Acanvas app. So you will have plenty to choose from! The Acanvas website will also enable users to remotely browse and select Art Stations and individual artworks easily. In the future, we’ll look to develop and grow a community of featured artists within Acanvas as well.
Would Acanvas work with Flickr, RSS feeds, Instagram, or other social media photo sharing sources?
Eventually, yes. Our team is looking at different ways of integrating social outlets into the Acanvas experience. We are pretty excited about the possibilities here, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates.
Will APIs be available for external developers?
Not at this time, but we may open up the REST API for public use in the future. We will update the community if this happens!
How far can you place Acanvas from an electrical outlet?
The charging dock has a 11ft (3.3 m) cord that plugs in the nearest outlet and allows for plenty of flexibility around the home. The charging cable extends 6ft (1.8m) from the frame to the floor.
Is there a way to switch off the self-charging option and only charge it when needed?
Yes. You are able to manually control the retractable charging cord through the Acanvas app.
Will Acanvas have an HDMI plug built in or any other inputs or outputs?
At this time, Acanvas is not equipped with an HDMI plug or other inputs or outputs.
What will the warranty be?
At the moment Acanvas is equipped with a one year warranty. This may increase before shipping, but we can commit to a one year warranty.
Will each of the Triptych frames be able to display separate images or must they use the same image over all three canvas?
Yes. Each Acanvas frame will be able to display its own image and can be easily controlled within the Acanvas app.
Will Acanvas have a bluetooth module?
Yes, we currently have one already!
What happens if the art subscription company goes out of business or changes its business models?
If a content provider pulls its content from the Acanvas catalog, that content will be inaccessible for future use. However, we are constantly adding new content providers, and promise to provide our community with a unique blend of art options.
