8 Sites To Help Dress Up Your Walls
Redecorating and need new prints, photos or artsy pieces to display? Finding original work can be difficult unless you know where to look — we suggest these eight sites.
A social network for artists and art enthusiasts, Deviant Art has original pieces with over 160,000 new works uploaded daily. The site can overwhelm at first, but persistence will be rewarded.
Eyes on Walls has edgy art inspired by today’s urban culture. They feature prints, mini art blocks, limited edition and original art from young, international artists.
Contemporary art sites are everywhere – so it’s hard to know where to look. ArtStar’s site is pleasing to the eye, easy to navigate and has a wide selection of fully authenticated work.
For those with a smaller budget, Circuit Gallery is an affordable alternative. They keep their costs low by selling in large editions – an inverse of the usual “fewer editions at a higher cost” policy.
The Victoria and Albert Museum shop offers the classics (from their archives) and new art. The selection is affordable and all proceeds go to V&A. Just beware the heavy fee to ship overseas.
If you’re looking for classics – Monet, Van Gogh, Dali – try 1000 museums. It sources prints from the museum archives around the world and offers them for a fair price.
ArtRiver offers an interesting selection of last-of-its-kind prints and posters from artists that define modern art.
This is a site to splurge on hand-signed originals that are printed in editions of 75 to 150. If you dig, you might find something under $100… maybe.
