Where Science Meets Art
At Entrupy, we use a hi-tech and sophisticated process to fingerprint the surface (front and back) of an artwork, along with adding various other details related to that particular work. Once the scan is complete, the physical artwork and the associated information (on our website) are now linked.
Our patented technology is based on the phenomenon called texture speckles, which are unique features that occur on every single object. You could call them the DNA of that piece of paper/canvas. Our fingerprinting process is laid out below
Scan artwork using microscopic technology
Encrypt and store the fingerprints of artwork
Add catalogue/provenance data and associate with fingerprint
Capture extremely hi-resolution image of work for digitization
Tally artwork's fingerprints with those existing in Entrupy's secure database
