I Think Art, Therefore I Am 

Cogito Artem Ergo Sum


Welcome to ArtDaCart, a unique online store that offers a collection of art-inspired t-shirts designed by a young entrepreneur and artist from Southern California, Rylan Mackey. As a high school student from La Jolla High School, I have always been fascinated by the world of art and philosophy.

Growing up in an artistic and entrepreneurial family, I was inspired to explore my creativity and express myself through art. With ArtDaCart, I combine my passion for art and entrepreneurship to create a platform that showcases my artistic vision and inspires others to express themselves through creative self-expression.

At ArtDaCart, each design is a reflection of my unique artistic style and philosophy. I believe that art is a powerful tool for self-expression, intellectual curiosity, and personal growth. Through my t-shirt designs, I hope to inspire others to explore their creative potential and engage with the world in a more meaningful way. 

But ArtDaCart is more than just a t-shirt company. As a proud resident of La Jolla Shores, I am committed to giving back to my community. Using the proceeds from my t-shirt sales will help bring different cultures to experience the beauty of La Jolla shores. By promoting cultural exchange and community engagement, I hope to make a positive impact on the world and inspire others to do the same. 

Thank you for supporting ArtDaCart and for joining me on this exciting journey of creativity and self-expression.

Our Cart became DaCart. ArtDaCart was born on the beaches of Southern California, inspired by the French philosopher Rene Descartes. We pay homage to this brilliant mind who revolutionized the world of philosophy in his time by educating our visitors about his works. Our name "DaCart" is a playful nod to Descartes, just as sandcastles are sculpted on the oceans edge, we've sculpted our brand from the sandy beaches of California.through our ART. 

Entrepreneurship is our passion and mission. We not only design and manufacture cool products, but also aim to make a positive impact on society by providing charitable donations to schools and at-risk communities, inspired by the business model of Newman's Own food products. This is where SmartDaCart comes in - our vision is to create entrepreneurial learning opportunities for young people and inspire others to embrace the spirit of entrepreneurship. We believe that by fostering this mindset, we can create a better future for all.

Our mission is to empower!

Please join our philosophy as we find our way through creativity, charity and opportunity with DaCart.
